Back!

Back from the islands "next door to paradise." Apparently paradise itself is a little bit cooler, since Maui was rather too hot for my (pregnant) tastes. But it was still beautiful, and relaxing, and I would go again. The rainforest along the Hana Highway has been added to my list of happy places - as in "close your eyes and go to your happy place." I'll have lots of wallpaper-worthy scenery shots for you once I sort them out, but for the meantime I think this one captures the spirit of the islands pretty well.



(We were dressed for a luau. We didn't normally go around in that get-up.)

Incidentally, I probably won't try to catch up on the friends list, so tell me if I missed anything good.

Amusing image of the trip, other than the one above: last night, about 11:30 pm. A couple hundred Hawaiian Air passengers are clustered wearily around the one active baggage claim conveyor belt in an otherwise abandoned area of Sea-Tac Airport. They are normally-white people with sunburn-pink skin, leis, Hawaiian shirts, sarongs, and/or flipflops, ready to head back into the crisp cool air of a wet Seattle autumn night. Somehow I bet this scene appears at Hawaiian Air terminals in temperate climates all over the world.

Glad you had a good time! That luau get-up looks comfy for the tummy. Maybe Lemondrop got some fresh air, too.

Aye...now that I look at it, it seems like I was exposing an awful lot of skin. But at the time, so was everyone else, and it was hot, so I didn't care at all. :)

Well, and you're only showing a lot of skin because right now you've got more skin to show than you normally would. So it doesn't count as risque, just adorable.

I don't recall noticing the Fruit Party, but you can use whatever photos work for you. It was raining much of the way that day (as it's wont to do, in a rainforest), so they might not be as bright and spiffy as one may desire.

Hey, any idea what happened to Kenshi? I just realized his journal has been deleted. :(

I noticed that too, but forgot to ask him. He was with us in Hawai'i, so I know he's fine, but not sure what's up with his LJ in particular. :)
