Hello and an update from Waikiki

Wow it’s been a whirlwind couple of days since we landed in Hawaii.  It always takes a few days into a holiday to wind down doesn’t it, and yes I’ve already lost track of what day it is!

Arriving after a night flight was not so good and we felt the effects for a good day or so.  The girls did well on the plane sleeping for a few hours which was a few uncomfortable hours for us as Andrew and I dared not move to wake them!

Our first stop is Waikiki where we are staying in amazing accommodation with a to die for view.  I guess you could call it a condo, with two bedrooms and a full size kitchen to prepare meals so we don’t have to bare the cost of eating out or worry about trying to find something remotely healthy.

That’s me, yellow board from the bottom

Yesterday I left the family in Waikiki and flew over to Maui for a the Imua Camp charity SUP paddle from Maliko Gulch back to the harbor (about 9 mile).  There were about 120 starters and it was amazing with clear blue water and turtles to dodge!

The girls have been non stop swimming, sightseeing and watching hula girls which is so sweet to watch.

In Hawaii there are a lot of people that share a passion for the ocean. It’s what draws us here so we love spending time at the Outrigger Canoe Club and my good friend Cara is a member of the Elks club next door.  The ocean is at your doorstep (where your board is stored) and it’s just the best atmosphere to sit, relax and have a chat with other ocean lovers.

Cara and I enjoyed a surf to catch up on the years that have passed by since we last saw each other, and even though it was raining we didn’t care (it just meant we had our break to ourselves).  Yep, can’t wipe that grin off my face over here…Til the next update Mahalo and have a great week.x
