Hawaiian Cruise Ship

HonoluluTo be honest I’m not a big fan of cruises. I get bored very quickly and beyond eating the always plentiful food there is not a lot for me to do onboard. The shore excursions are always too rushed and on the cruise, to Hawaii, we spent a lot of time out at sea.

I don’t understand how something as private as suicide is often it seems done in such a public manner as if to call attention to oneself after it’s already too late. It’s as if the act is meant to punish those left nameless. We circled the area hopelessly, as one would expect.

I was growing more restless as the hours pass and finally, we were once again on our way. We would miss Oahu and proceed on to Maui the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands. This would be our third trip to the island. I enjoy Hawaii's laid back lifestyle but it’s a little hard when your shore time is limited. I’m not normally a night person but shore excursions and set dinner times are like being on curfew. We would try to make the most of our cruise.

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm, and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

This image shows why you should never put your camera away. We were driving in the Italian countryside along the Hawaii. It was cold and a drizzle was falling, my camera lens was fogged um and the result is this impressionist image.

Maui

9 Jun 2015 16

When Carlin was small we made a trip to Maui and hit all the tourist hot spots. I’ll never forget when we drove to Paia, a popular surfing spot on the North Shore. There was a famous restaurant called Mama’s Fish House. When we told Carlin the name he was sure that his Grandma owned it. It was also the first time I had sweet potato fries. The restaurant is not cheap but lunch was affordable and the food was good. The location couldn’t have been nicer.
