VACATION ~ Headache or Happiness

Most of our vacations have been heavenly. I am sure the best of all would be the last trip to Hawaii.  We celebrated our 25th anniversary with my sister, Pat and her husband John on Maui. Does it get any better than that? Not for us, definitely.  We had one week on Oahu alone and spent most of the time on the beach and enjoying wonderful meals and not a few tropical cocktails. We never missed a sunset and never laughed so much.

The second week was on Maui in a lovely condo on the Napoli coast. We were treated to dolphin shows right outside our door and lush tropical plants everywhere we looked. The mornings consisted of coffee on our veranda overlooking the Pacific and hoping for a show of whales or dolphins. We saw some of each during the week. The afternoons we spent sight-seeing or shopping with Pat and John and we had dinner with them nearly every night.

Our anniversary dinner was at Mama’s Fish House a positively beautiful and delicious meal just off the beach of one of the most magnificent bodies of water on earth. The deep blue of the Pacific is all around you on Maui and you see volcanoes inland to admire and climb, if you’re inclined. There is no place I’d rather have spent our 25th anniversary than in Hawaii with my husband and my sister.

That was a vacation filled with happiness.

    1. Thanks, Jenn. I do love the islands, but have been 4 times and that's enough for me. I'll take the Caribbean now. It's closer and so very beautiful. No 12 hours flights!
