Delvin and I kicked off 2015 with a trip to Maui, HI with a few of the special friends I made when I volunteered for the Red Cross in Biloxi, MS following hurricane Katrina.
On January 7th we flew to San Jose on Southwest and stayed at the Wyndham Garden San Jose Airport. It was a short night as we arrived at the hotel at midnight and had to catch the 5:30am shuttle but at least we were able to get a few hours of sleep. Our shuttle driver was Ron and he was very friendly and gave us some suggestions of things to do in Maui - mainly visit the Maui Brewing Company which is just up the street from our condo. We boarded Hawaiian Airlines and headed for Maui. The flight was a bit bumpy but the service was fabulous. They gave us breakfast - fresh fruit, cheese & crackers and a chocolate - followed by coffee & tea and then rum punch and chips. They are the only US airline that still does a meal service. It definitely helped pass the time! We had a couple of hours to kill before Diana and Diana arrived from California so we drove around and enjoyed the views! We picked up the girls and headed for the condo (Makani Sands just north of Lahaina). We checked in and unloaded our bags and then headed to the local grocery store for some supplies. Ken and Susan arrived about 8pm and we enjoyed our first meal together of salmon and vegetables. It's going to be an awesome week!
