No post in a couple days. Whatever. Don’t read into it; I was on vacation. And when you’re on vacation, you’re supposed to unplug.
(I’m not saying that’s what we did.)
How was Maui? Maui was… well, here, take a look.
Sunsets, sunrises, fireworks, fresh coconut, sailing, snorkeling, reading, World Cup, rainforest. Yeah, it was a real struggle to deplane the red-eye this morning - on which I didn’t sleep a wink due to my shiny new blistering sunburn - and head directly to work.
Tomorrow, I want to write about our sailing and snorkeling excursion, which was totally worth the second-degree sunburn. Highlight: the speedy boat ride through choppy seas (8-foot swells!!) while “seated” in the hammocks at the bow of the boat. At times the bow was submerged in water; often momentarily afterwards, I was two feet off the deck. Visiting Maui? Do it: Trilogy Molokini trip. Great snorkeling (sea turtles *awww*), the crew feeds you authentic Hawaiian “mixed plates,” good sailing and motorboating, and a seven-hour trip full of million-dollar views.
