4938 Miles Traveled

Jan 19, 2010
Maui, HI
Mostly clear, some periods of cloudiness

Today was our free day, so it was less exciting than the last few days. I woke up late, took an intense nap, caught up on my reading, but two very important things happened today.
First, I bought a new suitcase. While not technically “smaller” than my old one, it is much lighter and much more squishable. More significantly, I got rid of about twenty pounds of stuff I didn’t think I would need, including my mosquito nets, my sleeping pad, my extra raingear, an extra towel and a book I was done reading.
Second, I had the most amazing shaved ice ever. I got “shark’s blood” (strawberry) and coconut flavored, with some delicious Kauai cream on top. It was the texture of snow, and all the flavors were handmade. As Mike and I sat enjoying our colorfully delicious snacks, an old man walked past and commented, “Hey! Those look great! Just like my last shroom trip.”

  1. Nothing like a shark's blood shaved ice to attract the "right" kind of attention.
