Hey girls! So Mr. Parry is sleeping soundly, well, not so soundly (snoring actually). It's 8:33 pm here in beautiful Maui, home is three hours later, and I can't sleep. Nothing on the tube, so I thought I would tell you about my vacation. Mr. Parry and I come down here every year the same time, I know it's a really hard thing to do ;o) I love it because the whale season is at it's peak. Have you ever seen one? They are amazing! When I was a little girl, I always said I would become a marine biologist. I have always been completely fascinated by the ocean and it's wonders. Someday, I will learn to dive. Anyway, back to the whales...for some reason the channel between Maui and Lanai is like whale soup. The whales come to Hawaii to give birth and mate, so they are really active and they put on quite the show. No need to even go out on a boat to see them, plenty to see right from your cabana on the beach. Last night there was this one whale jumping and breaching, either he was really happy or super mad. It looked just like this pic above. As I watched I was amazed at how big they are, massive is more the word. They are beautiful, how lucky am I to see them in person? How lucky indeed.
This is Wailea Beach, this is where I am. Pretty isn't it? From it's really powdery sand you can see Molokini, Lanai and another island I can't remember the name of. It's on the dry side of Maui, so not too much rain. It also faces the setting sun, last night's was gorgeous. Did I mention I left my camera in my car? Bummer.
I also wanted to tell you guys about a great book I read while down here it's called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. It's a great read, not too self-helpy (is that a word?), very interesting. The thing I liked most about it was learning to become more happy, because most of us are pretty darn happy right? I also read Nicholas Spark's, The Last Song, very good and yes, true to his work made me cry...alot.
So that's what I've been doing this week, what about you? I'd love to hear all about what my blog buddies are up to, so let's have a little giveaway, whatcha workin' on? Winner to receive a fat quarter bundle of either Blush, Oz or Nautical & Nice, your pick :o)
