Cloudy skies are quite lovely. It helps when you’re exploring sun-kissed beaches in Maui.
I loved walking on the sand and surf at the Royal Lahaina Beach.
My entry for this week’s Photo Friday: Cloudy.
MAUI – Waking up next to the Pacific Ocean. Palm trees swaying. Beach run in Lahaina.
My third trip to Hawaii. My first visit to Maui. I feel blessed to celebrate 10 years with my hubby.
Also. I need to resist the urge to check work email. I scheduled some tweets. Hotel wifi tempts me to stay plugged into my life back on the mainland.
This view from our balcony took my breath away. Vibrant sunset colors reminded me to enjoy what I have right now.
My inner shutterbug likes to take center stage on vacations.
We spotted three dolphins playing in front this boat last night. Squint. You’ll see it.
I wanted to start snapping away. I knew my iPhone lens would capture a black smudge. I gave up on the perfect Maui photo and enjoyed the impromptu show. I watched dolphins leaping and flicking their tails. I imagined hearing their laughter. I squeezed Mark’s hand.
My favorite part of my first sunset in Maui.
Somewhere over the rainbow… Palm trees sway.
Morning walk past the Hulihe‘e Palace in Kailua-Kona.
Trees offered shade as we took a break from our hike on the Ala Kahakai Trail.

This is one my favorite spots to enjoy a sunset with hints of pink, orange and blue.
We celebrated a wedding and reunited with best friends at the Royal Kona Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Add a fruity cocktail with vodka, mixed with pineapple and orange juice. Paradise.
A ukulele version of “L.O.V.E” played on our plane after we landed in Honolulu. This song now brings me back to the sun, surf and sweet memories of our quick weekend trip to Hawaii.
I also sampled the sweet flavors of the island after a hot, sweaty hike between beaches.
We gobbled up shaved ice with ice cream drizzle at Hapuna Beach.
