A Honeymoon of
Lava Tubes and Sea Turtles

My friend Doug and I have been together about 13 years, living
together about nine and it’s not like we wanted to have children –
been dare, done dat. But, he decided he wanted to make us
official, so he gave me a necklace with a beautiful raw
diamond engagement pendant. He’s a geologist
and into rocks. We were married last July.
His sons and my daughter were happy and my daughter, Chloé, said
we needed a holiday (first in two years), so she “cashed in” Avion
points and sent us off to Maui for a honeymoon. Such a good daughter.
Our idea was to stay here and there,
seeing and doing whatever we could find,
so I scooped good places for us to stay as
we circumnavigated the island. First stop was
in Paia, not far from the airport, then further
east at Hana, then ending up back west at Kihei.
