And you thought your summer solstice was a long day. Your day may have been the longest one of the year. But ours beats yours by a few hundred miles.
We woke up this morning at 4:15 and left the house at 4:50. We arrived in Maui at around 1:30 local or 5:30 Chicago time.
Our hosts met us at the airport, and we drove about 30 minutes to their neighborhood. We grabbed a bite to eat, and we suited up and hit the beach.
In case I haven’t said it yet, we’re staying with Tina’s friend Kim and her three kids. I’ve shot this family a couple times, and they are all beautiful people.
Tina and I are a little loopy, and we’re finally settling down to grab some sleep. We tried to keep ourselves up to make our jetlag a little more bearable.
It’s been a great day, and I’m almost kicking myself for not planning on staying for about three months. Hawaii might be the paradise. It quite possibly could be the place that believers modeled their stories of heaven after.
The above photo is Kim’s oldest silhouetted against a Maui backdrop.
Below are the other two kids having a blast in their element.
I hope that this post isn’t too incoherent. I’ve been known to blog when I’m way too tired to do so, and it’s not pretty.
