Aloha Bitches!

So this post is a couple of months late but whatevs. I figure I need to tell everyone about Hawaii because it was just the best trip ever. You should go, seriously.

The botanical gardens and tropical plantation:


My good friend Mary was getting married to Paul. I'm not so sure that I believe in soulmates but if I did, they would qualify. They've been together forever, share a love built on friendship, and are just the most accommodating, caring, and inviting people I have ever met. When I got the pretty blue invitation asking for my presence in Maui, I was in. I needed to get away. I needed this for me but I wanted to be there for them:


I scored an amazing deal on my Kihei condo through vrbo.com. I stayed in a gorgeous 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit right across from the ocean. Unfortunately, when I was dumping my camera, the goddamn thing crashed and I lost all of my photos of the interior so here's the link to where I stayed. The unit was listed for sale at $550,000.00USD - that should just about tell you how nice it was. The link does it no justice. It was equipped with everything and the hostess was just amazing. I also scored 1/2 price airfare through Westjet and got an amazing deal on a Mustang convertible. I was set to binge on lavaflows and fresh fish. Mission accomplished.

The beach across from the condo, Iao Valley through the vog (volcanic fog):

The Kamole Sands grounds:On the south side of Maui, Ahihi Bay with the rain coming in, Molokini in the background:
A bunyan tree in Lahaina:
Stuck in traffic, I look to my left and see this on the side of the road:An enclosed rain forest den of serenity on private property:

Me at 10,000 feet - the Haleakala crater:The Wailea Golf Club where the wedding was held. This was where the reception was held and quite possibly one of the most beautiful places on the planet:
I took over 600 photos but since blogger takes 6 hours to post each one, this is all you're going to get. I'd go back in a heartbeat, even with the 12 hours of traveling in a tin can above the ocean packed with screaming children and a 6 hour time difference.

But I digress. *sigh*
