I don't think I can express how wonderful it is here. Not only is it great to be in a (relatively) warm place and not in the freezing conditions back home, to have the ocean nearby no matter where you are, to see landscape that is completely unique….well, maybe that does express it a bit.
I am having a very good time. I am traveling with my mom and the days are full. I don't have much time to write and when there is a down moment I use it to relax. We're going to get to see most of the big island or at least drive the road that encircles the island. The more inland roads aren't passable in our little Ford Focus. It's more than enough, though.
I'm sure I'll have more to say when I get back—that is if I ever get a moment free of the pile of work waiting for me.
Grateful for: Hawaii.
