Our Hawaii holiday has come to an end and tomorrow sees up flying home to chillier weather (but still beautiful) Gold Coast.
This has been an amazing trip, and although my 4th time to Hawaii it still dishes up the same feelings as the first. The friendly people, perfect climate and cleanliness all add to making a holiday here hard to beat. This was the first time with kids and we never seemed to run out of ideas or ways to keep them entertained. (I'll keep that for another post).
On Sunday Andrew successfully completed what he has been training for and that was the Molokai crossing. About 52 km from Molokai to Oahu on a double ocean ski with his training partner, Tony. It was a journey that took just under 5 hours and in conditions that were not ideal.
Coming from a background that did not involve watersports makes it even sweeter and me proud as ever because I'll admit I had my doubts when he announced that it was on the cards. I love to be proven wrong but knew they would do it easily as the preparation and training was perfect and no stones were left unturned. A credit to them.

So back to reality and into the routine life brings. It was nice to escape the groundhog feeling and we are feeling refreshed and full of new perspectives. Now, what will our next little challenge be.....
