    There are multiple ways to deal with winters chill. We're trying this right now. Have to admit it works pretty good! This could spoil me.

    Maui. This is the view from our lanai. It's wild swimming with the sea turtles right out of your condo. This could spoil you quickly. Don't worry AP we'll be getting dope slapped by winter in a week. In the meantime I've discovered some fabulous local rums to bring back home.

    I loved Kauai. The air feels different as soon as you step off the plane, and there's so many beautiful empty beaches. Plus- the feral chickens. That's a bonus.

    Lest you think us total heathens, there's actually is a reason for our being here. It was a somewhat spontaneous decision that just came together. My son is going to have brain surgery soon and this was his wish before it happens. Hopefully it'll be fine, but sometimes you have to seize the moment when you can.

    I clicked that I liked your post Be Green . . . not because your son has to have brain surgery . . . far from it . . . and before I forget . . . good luck . . . but rather because I like the idea of seizing the moment when you can . . . it's a good thing to plan for the future, but we always should be mindful that sometimes our plans for a future are plans that never come.

    BG - I also "liked" your post because of the seizing the moment part. Good luck with all.

    You are back on my good list.

    If you're still there today go to the north side of the island, there is going to be some good waves.

    Great view BG. We stayed in Wailea for our honeymoon and I remember it well. Have you seen any humpbacks yet?

    Best wishes to you & your son for a successful surgery.

    The waves are definitely stronger today! Lots of surfers out there getting some nice rides.

    We haven't seen whales yet, but 3 were spotted yesterday afternoon from our condo. We're watching for them today. Might see them tomorrow when snorkeling.
