In Hawaii with no requirements

Time-off, vacations, holidays, these all give one a chance to rest the brain and let in other interesting ideas. Or activities. I learned many years ago, that a vacation, a real vacation begins with as few requirements as possible. So what I typically do is:


1) find a nice accommodating resort with condos or villas - room to stretch out and most importantly a kitchen and refrigerator

2) plan to do as much as possible at the resort (usually I choose one situated on a beach with either interesting surf or a reef for exploring)

3) buy what I need in as large a quantity as possible - fewer trips and supplies at hand


I have found several places I really like to return to, and every year try to consider one place new, but I also realize this will put more strain on my relaxation. 


This trip we are on Kaanapali beach on the island of Maui. Not the super-developed south Kaanapali beach but the north side, north of the Sheraton and black rock. We have about 1 mile of beach stretching either direction from the resort, great for walking and a great colorful-fish-filled reef. 


It only takes a simple set of swimming goggles to explore the reef - every year it seems to be easier to float in this salt water, for some reason. My daughter is loving it, she is a real fish, and Mom (not mine, hers) gets to walk the sands while we are out on the reef - that is when she is tired of the water.


Sunsets have been pretty good (still trying to see that green flash as the sun disappears) and the water is comfortable, temperature and surf-wise. Although my daughter is looking for a little more surf to put her boogie board through its paces.


So maybe not "no requirements" since we do have to eat and my wife won't just eat something cause she's hungry, it also has to really taste good. But with some supplies and a fridge, at least there are drinks, snacks and ice cream around.


Hang loose!
