I’ve been in Hawaii for a week now and I’m really enjoying myself. I’ve been able to spend some quality time with my honey and also do some fun shopping. Nothing big, but nice just the same. Since I really can’t buy anything large, since I have to carry everything back with me on the place, it limits me to buying as much little things as I want, but still limits me.
I’ve loved the ability to get on the highway. It’s bizarre, I know, but there are no highways in Guam. The max speed you can drive legally in Guam is 45 MPH and it’s only for a few short miles. Here, in Hawaii, I can get on H3 and drive up to 60 MPH and just go. It’s so nice. The island is so much bigger than Guam too. It almost feels like I’m back on the mainland… I don’t feel like I’m on an island at all. It’s so nice.
Today Matt and I took a drive to the east side of the island. We stopped at some look out points and took some pictures. It was so nice to just get out and drive. At one of the stops we even saw whales… yup…. whales. This time of year is great for whale watching so we were able to catch a glimpse of one today. We plan on taking an actual boat trip to see them more up close, but this little glimpse got me excited for our upcoming sail.
I’ll write more soon… just wanted to post while I could. Here are pictures from our drive today.
