Photo Friday: Cloudy

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.


I miss falling asleep to the sounds of waves crashing.


Maui feels like a dream.

Return to Paradise

MAUI – Waking up next to the Pacific Ocean. Palm trees swaying. Beach run in Lahaina.

#kvphawaii First beach walk in #Maui

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.

View from our room

My inner shutterbug likes to take center stage on vacations.

#kvphawaii Sunset dipped behind clouds. Dolphins jumped by boats. Calm before storm, #Maui flood watch

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.

Travel Theme: Trees

Somewhere over the rainbow… Palm trees sway.

Paper lanterns danced on an island breeze at the Royal Kona Resort.

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.

The public trail by the coast connected beaches and ran behind luxury properties and resorts.

We started our hike at Hapuna Beach. We ended it at Mauna Kea Beach. The view was stunning, from beach to beach.

Photo Friday: Orange

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.
#kvphawaii Shaved ice with ice cream drizzle at Hapuna Beach. Tasted so good after our sweaty beach hike.
We gobbled up shaved ice with ice cream drizzle at Hapuna Beach.
