So, as it would happen....Phillip insisted *wink* we go back to Maui to chill a while.
It's amazing the online deals that can be found right now. The only thing is... the weather looks like it may not cooperate - AGAIN!
The online Weather Channel has shown rain storms for the last two weeks. Now, there are flash flood warnings going on throughout the islands. Tropical storm Felicia's lurking in the neighborhood causing up to 15' swells. That should churn up the ocean really good and murky. Not so great for snorkeling. Oh well.
We've survived the Maui island earthquake in 2006. The Kauai Tsunami warning in January - however pre-mature it may have been - we were still spooked as heck!
Not sure how long it takes for the ocean to clear up or a tropical storm to dissipate, but hopefully not long.???
Here's to wishful thoughts of nice, sunny weather, calm seas and a smooth plane ride.
I won't be blogging from the island this time around. We don't even have any scheduled activities this time. No para-sailing. No helicopter rides. No zip-lining. Just a whole lotta R & R - in the tropical rain, er, STORM???
Oh, and our new walkway will be completed whilst we are gone. How's that for trust?
But, it looks great so far and I can't wait to see it all done.
Gotta get. I have a ton to do before we can even think about leaving....
I'm just a country girl, having the time of her life, treasure hunting daily, seeing the good in all things that others might consider worthless. I love creating mixed media artwork and home décor items using found objects...and I've just recently started dabbling in wearable art jewelry. Many of my fixed-up finds have been published in a number of magazines and have won accolades. But my life spent in Southern Oregon, with my family and friends, is the MOST important to me. Without their support and encouragement, I might just be another hoarder! LOL I'm enjoying meeting like-minded persons and sharing ideas, dreams, and experiences...and hope to have the studio open to the public someday soon.
