Last Cruise Day

on February 16, 2013

Spotty 3G again yesterday prevented me from posting. Sorry!

We had an easy day yesterday. We took a bus tour to Waimea Canyon. It’s gorgeous but all in all the trip was boring.

I also went on a bit of a food frolic by eating too many carbs and sugary crap. I felt sort of sluggish after the long bus ride. When we got back to the ship I did a couple of laps around the deck to recover.

Yesterday evening we cruised the Na’Pali coastline which is breathtaking! Whales were also all around including one very active baby. I caught its breaches and tail slaps on my camera so you’ll see photos in the future.

This morning we disembark and spend the day in Honolulu, including touring Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona. Our flight leaves tonight. It’s going to be a lonnngg journey home.

This was definitely one of the best vacations of my life, packed with adventures and new experiences. I am both elated and humbled. I could not physically have done this had I not lost weight and gotten more fit. My determination is also refreshed to reach my goals and then maintain the new, healthy me.

Thanks for taking the trip with me. Aloha and Mahalo.

    What!?! Waimea Canyon boring? You are very definitely not a plant person. But we balance out, whales, porpoises, fishies, I’m so *yawn.*
    Reading your posts — take your doggies and move to Hawaii. They can use your skills there, and you can use Hawaii.

      No, no, the canyon wasn’t boring at all! The bus tour was tedious. We should have rented a car and done the trip ourselves!

      I will definitely visit again but I love my home islands – the Florida Keys – and my friends and family too much to relocate so far. Now a nice timeshare on Maui might be the ticket!

    Kristian went to HS in Hawaii and one of his classmates has leaned on him to go to their next reunion. Your posts definitely make me want to see about making this happen!
