It happens every time. Our bodies are technically back in California but I can’t quite leave Hawaii behind. It’s not jet lag. It’s the sense that I had a glimpse of Paradise (because I just know heaven will be a 5-star hotel in someplace very much like Hawaii!) and I just want to stay and stay!
Hey, you say, I happen to know you’ve been to Hawaii more times than you can count.
We went when the kids were young:
We went when the grandkids were little:
And when the littlest grandkid was really little!
And we go whenever we can. But there is never enough Hawaii for us. On this trip, the CE even saw the light and said “We have to come back every year!”
What is it about Hawaii? It’s everything. The air, the flowers, the trade wind breeze…every moment is infused with beauty.
And when we are there, no matter what else is going on, we are happy.
Please don’t ask the hard questions, like “Well, what do you actually do there?
I could tell you there are many things to do. Snorkeling tours, helicopter tours, jaunts around the islands, etc. etc. etc. Of course, we don’t do any of them. What do we do when we’re there?
A lot of not very much. But we have so much fun doing it!
I can still vividly remember my first moments in Hawaii, which were spent, like this trip, on the island of Kauai.
Okay, forty-one years have done me no favors…
but Kauai is as beautiful as ever!
And yes, I’m already planning our next trip…
Aloha, Kauai…we hope to return soon!
