some snaps from our recent escape to Hawaii sans youngins. We left behind us rain and 2 boys very happy to be hanging with Uncle Chuck - burgers, pizza, ice cream nightly and lots of fun. This was our 5th trip to the islands (to our amazement). The first 3 times we recall as quite warm and balmy. The past 2 trips (both in Feb) were delightful for hiking but not exactly beach lounging weather. Supposedly we had 82 degree temps in Hawaii and 78 or so in Maui but very strong trade winds made it feel more like 65 as far as I could tell. We did go snorkeling a couple times and took some good hikes and visited 2 volcanos. Pete did excellent trip planning down to places to check out for our meals. We had a couple of stellar dinners in Maui - Mama's Fish House and Lahaina Grill are definitely worth the splurge if you are in the area. More pics on fotki of course.
