Unfortunately we had to cut our Kauai experience short today and head out to Maui. Not that Maui's bad, just that Kauai kicks ass. The flight was a bit bumpy and we had to go to Maui via Oahu. Off the northeast coast of Oahu, you can see the salvage ships that are working on removing the bodies from the Ehime Maru. In case you don't know, the Ehime Maru was the Japanese research boat that had an unfortunate run-in with the rapidly surfacing U.S.S. Greenville submarine last year. The research boat got torn in half and nine of the roughly 13 or so people were never found. Kinda surreal to watch something on the news and then fly by where it's actually happening. Oh, yeah, on this island we get a fire-engine red 35th anniversary edition Camaro convertible. Works for us. Plus, we got bumped up from a little bedroom with two twin beds to a honeymooners cottage with a king bed. Cute place that overlooks a golf course and is a hop, skip and a jump from Whaler's Village where I know we'll be spending some time and money.
