It was not easy to get to Hawaii from Toronto. To allow us to pace ourselves, we broke the trip up over two days. The first leg took us out of sub-zero (Celsius) temps in Toronto to balmy Los Angeles. There we met with Krista’s long-time friend Barb and her sister, Carole. Barb and Krista hadn’t seen each other for many years and had a wonderful reunion.
The second leg of our trip, was a flight directly to Hawaii the next day. Both flights were extraordinarily smooth. Mom and the Kid were taken through the each airport, coming and going, by wheelchair. This was an ENORMOUS blessing. The airport staff were unfailingly kind and helpful. We were so grateful for this.
We finally arrived at our condo in Kihei in South Maui. This beachy town is great — full of surf and souvenir shops, locals and many, many tourists — a large percentage of whom seem to come from Canada!
Our goal for our first day is to shop for supplies so we can cook for ourselves at our condo.
