Aloha again

We took another trip to Hawaii, this time splitting our time between the big island in the Waikoloa Resort area and Maui on Lahaina Beach. We love Hawaii even more after our second trip there. It helped that both hotels were exactly what we wanted, exactly where we wanted to be. "Location, location, location..." apparently applies to travel as well as to house shopping.

View from our balcony. 
Me hanging around the resort. Quite an impressive place.

We found nice places to rest on our beach walks.
Snorkel day! Wonderful coral and colorful fish to view.

Another scenic place to stop and enjoy.
I made a new friend in Kona. He didn't talk much, but he was a happy listener.

I run a lot in Hawaii. I love all the oxygen in the air at sea level, plus I enjoy taking in the ocean views, aromas, sounds of waves and birds... And after calling to me throughout my runs, the ocean is too tempting to ignore when I'm finished, so I kick off my shoes and dive in. It's very refreshing!

In Maui, the Lahaina beach went on and on and on... We enjoyed long beach walks every day. Our resort was away from the biggest throng of people but close enough to all the restaurants and shops that we could walk there instead of driving. We did a lot of walking, as usual for us. On both islands, we also enjoyed car trips along the coast, but we especially liked driving on Maui. It was very green and lush.

A short walk from our hotel, this shady spot just off the beach became a favorite spot for me.

One of many great pictures we took on a drive north.
