It's decided. Contrary to my previous post's indecision (how unlike me) this is about our second full day on Maui. Saturday 26 May. That is accurate. Now about that jet lag. I feel fine. I'm not groggy, foggy, fuzzy, or a duck. I am nicely awake and 'present' (what a novel state of consciousness). I'm … Continue reading Maui 2012 – Full Day Two
One? One and a half? We arrived yesterday evening and picked up the rental car surprise, a Cadillac SRX: The views from our suite were beautiful as the sun slowly sank in the west: A double-dog-dare-ya' Mai Tai (not its real name) pretty much put the cap on the evening: Jet lag and me getting … Continue reading Maui 2012 – Day Two?
