Just as our weather was cooling down, we got on a plane and went to Hawaii.  The temp was usually 84 degrees with 55+ humidity, but hey, it's Hawaii.  It truly is Paradise, and what made it even more heavenly was that we had our family with us.  

We stayed at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort, a very nice hotel.  Our first day my husband and I took a guided tour of the island, and yes, we got to see to see the volcano, but not close.  I thought it would hot anywhere near an active volcano, but it was actually cold.  We also got to stick our faces in steam vents coming from the volcano.  Great facial!  I was sure it would stink of sulfur, but it has very little odor.  So much for what I thought!
As a family we took a dinner cruise and it was great!  Probably my favorite event.  There were about 20 guest aboard a catamaran.  They fed us a delicious dinner with drinks and sailed us away.  It was a little cloudy, but the sunset was still breathtaking.

Our last night we went to a luau.  We have to been to luaus before and usually the entertainment was better than the food, but this time the food was delicious.  The show was great, too, and they even got one of my sons on stage to hula with the girls.  What a hoot!

It's fun to go, but it's always nice to get back, too.  (To tell the truth, I miss my dog.)  This is a shot of LA from the plane window.  Home Sweet Home.  

Aloha  . . .  until next time.
