Aloha! Finally! At last, for two weeks we've been waiting for this moment and it's finally here. We're on Maui, and I want to tell you about our first day:
The airport in San Francisco was hectic and I am still amazed we made it out in one piece, but the plane ride was actually kinda nice. Not too long and I didn't get sick at all. We touched down on Maui 11:20 local time. As soon as you get off in Maui, you can feel a difference. If you breathe in real deep, you can smell a warm, faint smell of tropical breezes.
We ate then went to our condo - it was left in good condition, which was a relief. I started unpacking and got bored - it was beach time! I walked down there and was completely blissful. I don't know how else to describe it. I just ran in and out of the waves like a little kid, completely and utterly having the best time of my life.
We went to the store a little later. It's amazing how much you take for granted - we were surprised by the sheer neccesaries we had to buy! Our cart was filled to the brim and we have a LOT more things to get, later. Tonight, we grilled out by the pool and watched the beautiful sun set behind ocean, mountain, and sea. Just wonderful. I was able to swim a little in the pool.
p.s. Sorry about missing the last couple days. Apparently the thought of complimentry Internet still bothers some hotels. Nothing happened to report.
EDIT: How could I say there was nothing to report!? I totally forgot to mention I saw Shannon (my horse) Sunday! She was... exhausted. I guess. Kinda out of it, but I don't blame her. I was kinda hoping for the OMG YOU ARE HERE GIVE ME KISSES reponse she usually gives me, but I could tell that after I got there she felt she could relax. It was almost like "Ah, you're here. I can relax now." I think she will be here mid-August but the shipping companies are unsure themselves at this point.
