Views on the Move in Hawaii

Our son suggested that we go somewhere, as a family, for Thanksgiving. He chose Maui.... a great choice! We Dreamers have never visited the islands, so planned to go a bit early to get a feel for the place. First we planned visits to Oahu and Hawaii for a few days each. Then, we realized we could do a cruise around the islands and see even more, and not have to lug suitcases. So off we flew....

A welcome sight after a long flight.

Pretty pool from the 16th floor.
It reminds me of the turtle bowl I had as a kid!

Waving goodbye to Honolulu from the deck of the cruise ship.

Carmen made sure our cabin was clean,
and created critters to greet us each evening.

Life on deck was dreamy! 
I even took some time to relax! This is my view from the deck in Maui.

We had to use tenders in Kona. The waters around the islands are a rich, deep blue!

A rainbow shines on our last morning on the cruise ship

I caught a view of our ship from the air and felt a hint of melancholy.
Good-bye. It was fun.
Now.... onto the next adventure!

  1. I had that same turtle bowl! Poor turtles. I went to Hawaii years and years ago...in another lifetime. And I remember it being gorgeous. What a great idea to cruise it! I could use some of that tropical weather right now. -7 here at the moment. Merry Christmas!
