Loving the Vacation

Every Mai Tai should be served in a glass like this!

Caught this humpback off the lanai last night,

Happy Birthday Dad

April 17 1945. That's my Dad in the middle - age 20.
Dad passed away April 2011. He would have been 87 today.

I am sure as Dad sat here with his buddies at Keith Jones restaurant in Los Angelas in 1945, he had no idea that he would enjoy over 63 years of marriage to his first love, produce 7 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren with 2 more on the way.

Missing him dearly.

More Maui

The day started with a spectacular rainbow off our lanai which stayed through breakfast. 
Maui is a beautiful place.

The day ended with macadamia nut crusted Mahi Mahi and a mango chutney.

Maui Day 3

 Day started out with a long walk to the south - over an hour and a half - just discovering the place. 

The sunrise behind the condo 

Love this flower. It is going to make a beautiful backdrop for the photo book.  


Turtles off the lanai this afternoon

Humpback whales off the lanai this afternoon. 

When a humpback hits the water the splash can be seen for miles.

Maui Day 2

 The Mahi Mahi was fantastic! But we are all pretty tired and still adjusting to the time change... or maybe it is just that ocean air and the sound of the waves that puts us to sleep.... or the wine. 
 The pool and the beach down below. 
The moon over the island of Lana'i this morning at 5 am.... cruise ship on the horizon - maybe that is why I am so tired. :)

And the perfect end to a beautiful day in Hawaii - the guys doing the dishes shirtless! 
It was Linda's idea.... I concurred.

The things we love about Hawaii....
the fresh seafood
the smell, the sound and the views of the ocean
romantic sunsets
each other ;)

 See that big guy on the right? We are eating him tonight - well some of him. His name is Mahi Mahi. That is his little buddy Yellowfin Tuna beside him. We were eyeing him up as the fishermen brought him in. David got talking to another tourist and they decided to share him so he was cut up into about 30 steaks (15 each) ...... We will BBQ him tonight. mmmmmm Here's the plan - Macadamian nut Crusted Mahi along with home made avocado salsa and chips and coconut shrimp.

 The view- 8th floor. That's Moloka'i Island in the distance.
