If only this (Maui) weren't an excruciating 10-hour flight plus inter-island flight away... Below: scenes from the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort. Joyce in the pool there. :)
Yep, I think I'll settle on this nice patch of lush grass on a gentle hill overlooking the beach with my current read. Mmhmm.
Then I'll wander (OK, I mean take the stunning drive up to the Northwest tip of the island) over to Mokuleia Bay and take a dip in these crazy clear aqua waters.
Oh, then I'll wake up from this dream and realize it's all buildings and concrete and city smells around me. But, it's familiar and grand all the same and I can't imagine living anywhere else. Not yet, at least.
Apologies for this bizarre scatterbrained post. It's been a strange morning!
