The islands of Hawaii are phenomenally beautiful. I expected the palm trees and pristine beaches. I didn’t expect the gorgeous mountains, winding roads, and stunning waterfalls. We arrived in Honolulu, toured Oahu’s north shore, gobbled up garlicky shrimp from a shrimp truck, visited Pearl Harbor and moved on to the island of Maui for more laid back relaxation.
This morning I’m enjoying some Kona coffee while the sun’s rising over Maui’s Ka’anapali beach. We picked up a juicy, fresh pineapple, papaya, and bagels for breakfast. Later, we’ll explore the island a bit more and try some snorkeling,
