For some time we’ve talked about going to Maui together. Eventually, we were all on board and even had a meeting to discuss options.

Karen and I met the first group–Karen, Joe, Julie and Dave– at the airport; they flew in from Oahu where they had spent a few days. First stop was lunch at our favorite Vietnamese place, A Saigon Cafe, owned by a character who calls himself “Charlie.”

Then a Walmart stop for supplies before heading the other side of the island to get settled in.

Wally and Mariann flew in late last night so we all went to Duke’s this morning for breakfast. After The Whole Group photo, we had to have one of all of us who worked together in Corrections.

After breakfast, everyone came over to our condo to enjoy the whales and turtles and view, oh my!

The ocean was rough today so whale watching was difficult. But I did capture this calf doing a tail slap.  I also got a photo of my favorite flower.
