We're here and it is all-over beautiful! I must admit to a small case of culture shock - so many people cruising along the strip in Waikiki and LOTS of people in the water and on the beach because it was Saturday. We had dinner outside with a very loud band blaring, but gazing at the horizon made up for that!

Can you imagine seeing THIS every night? Doesn't this make you want to re-read Hawaii?

The only shop I stopped in - THIS little cubbyhole of lovely! Aren't the quilts stunning?
Of course my teacher body awoke at 3 am and after breakfasting on a fresh fruit gift from Bill's travel agent, I'm wishing Bill would wake up and go get me some coffee! He's snoozing away though. Today we'll head to the beach and float in the ocean with LOTS of other people, walk around, nap, read, journal, nap, take pictures, nap. I know I'll be tired early. Bill's a veteran when it comes to coping with jet lag - me, not so much.
I hope YOU are doing okay. You are so sweet to check in on me today! I promise more fun to come. Aloha!

I suppose it wouldn't really be nice to be on vacation all the time, even if you were a waitress, but sometimes it seems like an awfully nice idea. I'm glad you're enjoying yours!
