Following Maui's West Coast

West Maui is a lot less populated, and, indeed, busy, than Maui's Eastern half. But it's where one can see spectacular scenery, see an ocean blowhole, and eat the World's Best Banana Bread. So, let's get started!

My elder granddaughter acheives adulthood.

My first granddaugter, Cailey Hope, grew up on the East Coast so we didn't get to see too much of her; just during the occasional trip by us East, or by them, West. So we were delighted when her parents moved to Arizona! However, I was also concerned that she would have trouble joining a senior high school class in which she knew no one might be tough. Not to worry! Cailey simply signed up for online classes with Chandler Online Academy. And tonight was her graduation! She had never actually met her classmates; but now they were all together to receive their diplomas.

With Keith In Maui, 2019

Keith and I take a trip to Maui, Hawaii.

Maui is the most romantic place I've ever been to. Not that I've had a lot of chance to be romantic there, as the first trip I made, I made solo; the second was with my boyfriend of the time (and foreshadowed the end of our relationship); the third was for my daughter's wedding. This time is different. It's for my dear husband Keith's birthday, and is doubling as our delayed honeymoon. And I have every intention of being romantic on it!
