Some how this morning as C and I drove S to the airport the idea of going to Hawaii came up... again. C and I have more or less been badgering S to go there every few months. To our surprise this time when C said "What about Hawaii?" and I said "I'd love to go there next Christmas" S replied "I was thinking the same thing. Actually I was thinking of surprising you but I think it might work best if we look into it together."
Seriously? We can go? I don't know. Plane tickets are roughly a grand per person, however S already has enough miles for two people to go for free from United! Well, sort of. United's flights don't open up that far in advance, so I put in dates in October. Here's hoping it is close. Next I looked up Bellows Air Station - a full blown two bedroom house is 65.00 a night. Or we could camp directly on the ocean for 12.00 a night. It is in the low 80's there in December with high humidity, so it looks like that would be great for swimming.
If we go, we are not going on any major VK's this coming year. That is quite a commitment. After all we LOVE our vacations.
