A travel day
We are on the ferry to Vancouver to get the bus to the Canada Line, which will take us to the airport where we'll get on a flight to Maui for a week. This little trip is an indulgence before the Christmas rush, well maybe even an avoidance of the Christmas rush. We're staying with friends Aaron and Laura who have a timeshare there. Looking out the window of the ferry at the slate blue water whipped into whitecaps by an icy wind, it's hard to believe that tonight we'll arrive in a place with warm turquoise water.
It's been more than 20 years since I was last in Hawaii and the thing I remember most of all was that warm swimmable water. I'll post a few photos from Maui--and I hope it doesn't make you too jealous. This one is from google images of the water off of Maui.
