a room with a view


Forgive me for not posting sooner ... we've been in Hawaii for over a week, but ... I've been SICK for part of the time! Yes, such a bummer! {sigh} It seems that the leftover cough & congestion from my pre-Hawaii flu just won't let go of me. I'm sure that the 11-hour plane ride here didn't help either.....but I'm soldiering on with most of our plans because I love it here and want to savor it!

So, just today, I have a bit of energy to blog and finally begin to share our Hawaiian journey with you. I'll have to give all the details and pics later on when I'm feeling better, but for now ... we had a memorable and romantic belated 20th anniversary celebration at the Four Seasons Resort in Maui. Sal, you're the love of my life and my best friend !!!

And now we're in Honolulu (on Oahu) for Sal's chemistry conference.

He's attending Pacifichem 2010 and will be presenting his amazing research to chemists attending from all the Pacific Rim countries ... Japan, Korea, Fiji, Thailand, China, Malaysia, and many more. Congratulations, Sal !

Doesn't that look cool (and complicated, whew!)?

And here's the view from our room, on the 27th floor of the Rainbow Tower, way up in the Waikiki sky, here at the Hilton Hawaiian Village:

Pretty stunning, right? There's no App for this, LOL. And I LOVE the beauty combined with the sound of the ocean waves (yes, the sound carries way up here! ... so does the live music, but hey I can't complain). It all sure makes up for the disappointment of being sick while visiting one of my favorite places on the planet!

I'm missing Buddy & Aruba like crazy, but I'm hearing that they're being pampered (spoiled?) by Grandma & Grandpa! ;-)

I'm off to attend a hula show tonight while Sal attends conference sessions.

Thanks for stopping by.....

More soon,
