Back on the Mainland

Luckily, Kathy felt quite a bit better Sunday morning. She was able to snooze out by the pool while I was able to snorkel out on the reefs just in front of the resort. Finally I got to see a couple of nice turtles. The would come to the surface every so often for air and then just dive down and crunch in the little critters on the bottom. They just hang out there for quite a while. I guess I was out snorkeling for a bit, because when I came in I was freezing! Now I know what the hot tub is for. I went out a snorkeled once more and saw more turtles. Kathy just hung out and recovered.
That evening we walked down to the Four Season's hotel to check out the scene there. We didn't hang out long and instead headed back and had a lite dinner at Humuhumunukunukuapuaa (named after the state fish) - say that ten times fast. Afterwards, we headed back to the Marriott and hung out and checked out the stars.

The next morning we had a little morning beach time, packed up and headed back to the airport. The flight back was uneventful, with a little turbulence at the beginning. The only downside is that we arrived at 11 pm in Seattle. Of course, that was only 9 pm Maui time, so it wasn't too bad. I was pretty darn tired when we rolled into the house at 1:30 am.
