So, we spent a couple of days in Waikiki when we arrived in Paradise. Right now, we are on Maui staying in a two bedroom apartment! It is wonderful to eat breakfast on the lanai and feel the breeze on our faces.
Today, where I live it is minus two degrees. Ick. I never want to go back. I might even have Dean convinced to move here eventually!
The kids and Dean would be completely content swimming in the ocean all day, every day. Waikiki was crowded and expensive. Now that we're on Maui, it is BEAUTIFUL, laid back and just plain perfect.
Running on the beach every morning has allowed us to eat all the blackened Ahi and Mai Tai's we want!
