We Have Arrived!

It has been a long and tiring day, but we have finally arrived… happily and joyfully… in Maui! Even the child, who got up at the unholy hour of 5 a.m., is feeling happy-happy-joy-joy!

Things started off great!  Traffic cooperated in Seattle, so we were able to get to the airport with enough time to eat some breakfast before the plane left.  Yay!

When we finally arrived in Maui around 3 p.m., we went directly to the rent-a-car place. Did you know chickens run wild and free here?  I kept hearing a rooster crow, and I couldn’t figure out for the life of me where it was coming from.  So I had to go investigate.  Indeed… they were just hanging around the parking lots waiting for people to feed them (tourists are so very kind)!

After that, it was off to the store for supplies for a few days.  And we went on from there to our hotel.

We were so happy to get to our room finally!

And yes… James and I are still streaking.  Shortly after I took the above picture in our suite, the two of us were kitted up and on the treadmill, making sure we got in our runs today no matter what (it was too dark to run the outside and unfamiliar territory, although the weather was just gorgeous). And yes, it was semi-painful to have to streak today because we both wanted and were more than ready for our Friday Happy Hour, but we couldn’t start happy hour until after our run.

So, we’ve landed, arrived at the hotel, completed our daily run, and guess what we’re doing now?!! You know it!! Cheers!!

    Wild chickens?! How fun; enjoy the trip, and good for you for continuing the streak! If ever I could find an excuse to stop, a trip to Hawaii would be it… 🙂

      Thank you Sharon! I so didn’t want to run last night, but we figured hey, what’s a mile! At the most (for me), it’s like 15 to 16 minutes out of my day, and it’s totally worth it, especially after sitting down for 6-1/2 hours on that plane. 😀 Thank you so much… I’m so excited to share the beauty of this place!

    So beautiful! And it looks and sounds like you all are having a great time. I was just going to write about our chickens–do you mind if I mention your chicken sighting in my post and add a link to you? Good luck with your runs!

    Glad you got there safe and sound 🙂 Free roaming chickens- totally cool! I applaud your determination to keep your streaking going- most people would have headed straight for Happy Hour 😉 That little run probably helped to combat any jet lag though. Good luck to you and James for your races, and most important- HAVE FUN!
