I wanted to check in today from Hawaii.
I've been here several days now and I've done a lot of …
That's right – nothing.
I feel no guilt, whatsoever, doing nothing.
I've been catching up on some much needed sleep, swimming in some of the most beautiful water on the planet, reading when I feel like it, taking fewer photos than I thought I'd take (but still a lot), eating delectable foods regardless of their carb and/or calorie count, and drinking way too much alcohol – beginning fairly early in the day.
Yes, I'm having the perfect vacation.
Our weather has been perfect so far.
Yesterday I had banana macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup for breakfast. As an aside, I don't like pancakes and never have. These particular pancakes are the only ones I'll eat – ever. They were delicious. (Although, I think I only ate one because they're very filling.) When I finished my pancake(s), I began humming Jack Johnson's song Banana Pancakes and I don't think I stopped for the remainder of the day.
I followed up the pancake(s) with a pretty strenuous hike. I'm making an effort to exercise every morning since there are so many beautiful places to walk/hike here.
As always, we're surrounded by zillions of huge sea turtles. (We stay at a cove with a very high sea turtle population.) For those of you who have never seen a sea turtle, it's hard to imagine how big they are. Some of them get up to 400 pounds.
In fact, I honestly feel some sort of weird spiritual kinship with them.
They're beautiful animals, graceful, serene … majestic.
My Internet connection here is spotty at best, but I'll try to pop in for updates as I can. In the meantime, I'm taking photos of some pretty cool sights to share with you in future posts.
