Pictures in paradise

I know. I know. I am the most inconsistent blogger on the blogosphere! But I hope you'll forgive me! I just wanted to share some photos from my long awaited vacation to Hawaii. We went there on our honeymoon and made a pact to go back in 5 years to celebrate our anniversary. Well, we made it happen. And by we I mean my husband because I wasn't willing to spend the money, though I had NO problem spending some when we got there. Anyway without further ado, I give you beautiful Maui:

Humuhumunukunukuapua'a (aka reef trigger fish)

This is me jumping in the clouds at 10,023 feet in elevation on top of Haleakala. I know, I'm a dork but I couldn't pass up the fun photo op.

We loved snorkeling and this honu (turtle) swam right by us, IT is was really cool! Actually we had two turtle encounters, but hubby had the camera for the other one and therefore there are no pictures of it.
Best sunsets ever!!


  1. Gorgeous...But I don't get how you got that picture of you in the clouds...Does that make me gullible? An airhead?

  2. Its all about the camera angle - the volcano is high enough to be above the clouds so I just stood towards the edge and jumped while Mark snapped the shot from below :)

  3. Great pictures!

    The jump was so neat! ~Bloghopping here~
