Day 1 in Paradise

Today we traveled to the beautiful island of Maui. We brought my son, Ryan and his adorable girlfriend, Katie, with us. The nice thing about traveling here, is that we gain time. It is a 5 hour flight over, but in California, we are 3 hours ahead. Our plane left at 7:40 am and we arrived im Maui at 9:40 am. So, we had the whole day ahead of us. We spent a good part of it, laying out by the pool reading.
I really wanted to get some good sunset photos, but have not been studying my photography lessons. I am surprised that I actually got some good shots. I played around with the settings on my camera and took pictures at various times.This is Ryan and Katie. Aren't they a cute couple?For dinner we ate at the Hula Grill. My dinner was so yummy. I had grilled shrimp served over pasta in a pesto macadamia nut sauce. The food here is so fresh and delicious. I am going to have to be careful or my luggage won't be the only thing over the weight limit. lol.
