Our hotel was the only on the island. The restaurant was 20 paces from our room.
Did I mention it was on the ocean? Did I mention our room was right on the ocean?
We had a gorgeous view of Lanai.
We spent the week touring the island-all 38 miles of it.
Heading to the West End we spotted this gorgeous spot.
On our first night in Molokai our hotel sponsored a benefit for the Special Olympics.
Did we want to go? Absolutely!
We tried local food favorites. This is "Loco Moco":
lots some of these...
There are more Packer Fans on Molokai than you would think!
We went off-roading and snorkeling...
And went to the beach...
The most gorgeous black
sand beach on the East Side-Halawa Bay.
(I had a print made of this shot for our new house-LOVE.)
We enjoy doing lots of nothing...
Night strolls on the beach...
Learned about and cracked our own macadamian nuts!
And celebrated 10 years of marriage.
I wasn't quite sure if this trip was going to doable, especially the night Jeremy bid on the timeshare week someone had donated to a charity event we attended. I was thinking about it logistically. Who the heck is going to watch AJ and, and, and... It all worked out. A very special thank you to Jer's Mom for watching AJ for the entire week.
We had an amazing time and really had a chance to reconnect as a couple. I was silly, he was silly. We laughed until we cried. We relaxed and talked about the future and talked about how we need to do this more often. Perhaps, not a trip across the country all the time, but we found ourselves totally re-energized and ready for life. We needed recharging. We hope some day to make it back to Molokai, but for now, we'll enjoy our amazing memories.
