Hawai'i really is a worthwhile diversion, especially after six months of snow.  We really liked the warm sand.


The warm pavement was nice, too. 

 Imagine, a land where coffee beans and guava grow on trees...

...and my, are the trees big!


So are the house plants.

What a nice vacation we had, the first 100% real, married-couple vacation we've taken the ten years we've known each other.  No special occasion, no reason except that we wanted to. 

Who wouldn't?

Beautiful pictures!  This makes me miss my native Hawai'i nei.  I've been in Baltimore for college since September, and I am very much homesick!

Corwin, just out of curiousity, where did you live in Hawaii?

I'm not from Hawaii but the pictures also look a lot like my native Honduras...

I'm glad you had such a great time!

Nice pictures, and that last one shows the effects of a true married people's vacation.  You both look very happy.  I hope you won't wait ten years for the next one.
