A few weeks after John returned home, we took a MUCH needed, relaxing vacation to Maui, Hawaii. It was fabulous! We have been to the Big Island as well as Oahu before so we decided to try out Maui and we both agree it is our favorite!
We were very fortunate to stay in one of the most amazing hotels I have ever been to in my life. Here is a view from our balcony.
And the pool area...
The first day we were there we relaxed a bit and settled in.
The next day we took a little road trip south to do a little shopping. John was quite gracious to let me do this the second day we were there! When you live in a country where shopping as we know it in the US is virtually nonexistent, then seeing a strip mall or any recognizable retail store is very exciting!
On the way, we pulled over to a scenic outlook and were able to see 3 other islands.
On the way home we strolled along the beach for a while, then we had dinner at a new Mai Tai restaurant with rooftop dining.
Just in time to catch the sun setting!
The next few days we spent at the pool and the beach.
We got to swim next to a few sea turtles!I'm sorry this took so long to post. This blogger website has been acting up a bit and finally let me upload pictures!
Stay tuned for the second half of our vacation...
