Hi Girls! My DH & I took the "red-eye" flight home last night from Maui to Phoenix. :( I spent the day doing hum-drum chores - dragging my dear sister, Tina around town with me! One exciting thing on my to-do list was to replace my broken Sidekick, making good use of that 50% off coupon :) I was a happy lil' scrapper, skippin' out of Michael's with my new toy :) Life was good! I started to back out of the parking lot, to continue on with my endless list when my unfortunate event occurred! :( While in Reverse, my car just suddenly stopped. The engine continued to run, (Thank Goodness because it was a toasty 101 degrees outside). My car would not engage in Drive, Reverse or Neutral! The shifter was stuck in Park in the middle of the main entrance into the shopping plaza! While waiting over 1 hr for a tow truck, Tina & I visited with the A/C in overdrive :) My car has some fancy electrical work so when the tow truck driver arrived, he did not know how to release the gears! Ugh!!! I made several SOS phone calls to the dealership requesting help but noone seemed to know the magical trick! After another 1 hr of phone calls, Tina & I read the manual. Success!!! :) After dropping my car off at the dealer & picking up a loaner, our adventures continued :)
I wish I was back on that magical Hawaiian island with my DH, relaxing on a pool-side chair under an umbrella, sipping a phoo-phoo drink, with my biggest concern being making a choice on what restaurant to eat dinner at :) This has been my first Reality Check upon arrival from vacation!
Here are a few more vacation photos that I wanted to share with you girls... I hope you enjoy them!
These are the 7 Sacred Pools located in Hana. To see them you have to drive "The Road to Hana" which is a dangerous curvy drive with over 600 turns and 54 bridges. A must do once in a lifetime drive but BEWARE, motion sickness is quite common to say the least! :(
My DH & I at the point where the 7 Sacred Pools meet the ocean! AMAZING!
The two of us parasailing in Kaanapali! What a thrill ride & incredible view!
This is the 2 mile path that winds along the ocean starting at our resort that we ran everyday :) The shorter white buildings in the background is the resort we stayed at, The Fairmont Kea Lani. Extremely friendly staff, gorgeous grounds & views.
These are the lava fields on Maui. Makes me think of the moon's surface. Really cool!
This is The Hali'imailie General Store. One of our favorite restaurants located in Upcountry. They serve the BEST Mangoritas! :)
These two photos of the Hibiscus were taken with my DH's iPhone 3GS while on one of our strolls! It had just finished storming - check out the rain drops on the flowers :)
Gorgeous Maui sunset photos taken from our hotel. Wild color schemes!!!
Please share your thoughts with me & let me know what you think of these pics. Hope to hear from you. Be Sweet!
