For 10 days in January, my husband and I were able to sneak away to the beautiful islands of Hawaii. We spent 5 days on Maui at the beautiful Sheraton resort (2), basking in the sun and playing in the waves. We went snorkeling, whale watching (3), hiking (5), visited the Old Maui Plantation (1)Ã‚Â and a even had the opportunity to go to an old fashioned luau (6).
The second 5 days of our trip was spent on Ohau. We stayed on Waikiki, putting in plenty of miles walking the beach, visiting the shops and driving around the island stopping at various beaches.Ã‚Â We hiked Diamond Head, swam in Hunauma Bay and visited the Pearl Harbor Memorial (4).
Did I mention we did this all without our two children? 🙂 Daily calls home helped ease the small amount of guilt we had about not taking the kids with us, but we deliberately saved quite a few fun activities for the next trip we take back to the Islands – this time with the kids. 🙂
