Hawaii Day 1

For the first time ever, we woke up in Hawaii. The previous night we'd had snacktime at the resort bar, and Wendy had managed to rip the nail off her big toe. The former was a delight

and the latter less so.

First morning in Maui, though, and we decided to go to the much-renowned Gazebo for breakfast. It took us 50–60 minutes to get through the line, but eventually we were seated with an ocean view:

Yes, the food was great and worth the wait. We met people in line who did the wait daily. Incredible.

After breakfast we explored the grounds and beach where we were staying. What a pretty area; it's incredible what a place becomes in such a blessed climate. Maui's the most lush and verdant place I've ever been.

It's nice to see that there are still parts of Hawaii that look as good as ever. I can't wait for the next opportunity to go back there.
