Sigh … our last full day here. Had to have one last lunch at Aloha Mixed Plate, then spent the afternoon at the ocean, swimming, reading, chatting, and watching whales. I was giving Bev a hard time about working too hard, when two whales, very close to shore, started doing synchronized tail slaps. We both started yelling with joy and amazement—causing quite the neighborhood disturbance 🙂

Our flight leaves late tomorrow night and we get home Wednesday afternoon. Maui has restored our Hawaiian souls for another year and we’re excited to see Harper and Gus and resume our Minnesota life.
