90% of me is struggling to find meaning on why being here has provided a healing peace of sorts. And how I can bring some of this magic back home with us. I know there’s a lesson to be learned here. And I do believe I’m seeing the light in a few areas which I’ll share with you soon. I miss deeper, writing ramblings and can’t wait to get back to that.
Anyway, we had a fabulous ‘nothing’ kind of day yesterday. I started my day walking the beach early with coffee and camera in hand, taking a bazillion shots, like the one above. Can you believe no saturation was added to that? Then jumping in the pool all afternoon.
By late afternoon, desiring a bit of an adventure, we hit the road to the end of Maui through Kihei. I had heard there were lava fields, and wow, there were. It was like driving from the amazingly, groomed perfection of high end Wailea onto moon grit. Drastic. Startling. Kinda scary even. I will show you soon.
But upon coming back, we drove past this quaint church I had to capture. I have a thing for old buildings and churches, and would love to go back to these grounds for an entire photo shoot! This sweet stone church was found in the Makena area beyond Kihei, which was nestled right against the ocean. Complete with its own graveyard. 🙂
I have taken hundreds of pictures during this vacation, but being that our stay is nearly complete, I’d rather take these photos home and edit them properly to share. So please bear with me as we ride this last week out.
For today, there’s something else brewing that’s rising to the top. There’s a tropical storm watch that fires up Wednesday night and will run through the end of Thursday.
The notices are taped to doors on how to prepare. So taking it fairly seriously, I gassed up, got cash, picked up larger containers of water, extra food, and now we wait. The grocery stores were pretty empty last night people wise, so I hope that’s a good sign! I noted what others were picking up and they appeared to be the same kinda stuff we were, so there’s that I guess.
Hopefully it’ll only be a rain storm. Pray it’s only a rain storm… we are ground floor level close to the shoreline. And the only time to kinda fear that is during a storm watch. 🙂
This may be the last post you’ll see should we lose power, wifi and all that good stuff. So if there’s no link party on the weekend, you’ll know why. I REALLY hope I’m being overly cautious… 🙂
Time to nip a few loose areas in the bud, and get on with it. The sky is already being washed with darker cloud cover as I type and the wind is kicking up early in the AM, which is not typical. Not very comforting… and I can hear the lifeguard’s warnings from the beach. Hmmm… I think I need to take a quick walk to the beach and see how large those shore breaks are…
Would love your prayers for safety for everyone here over the next few.
See you soon, friends! Can’t wait to chat with you so much more!
Edited to add: storm watch has just been dropped to heavy wind and rain! Yay!! Let’s hope it stays that way…
