Aloha from the chilled out Hawaiian Island of Moloka’i!
We’re enjoying a quiet Easter Sunday morning on the lanai of our apartment at Wavecrest Resort, located on the south shore of eastern Molokai.
The coffee is freshly brewed and the warm Hawaiian sun is brightly shining. Off in the distance, we can see a pair of whales playing, surfacing every few minutes and shooting water out of their blowholes. It’s turning out to be another great day already and it’s only 7:00 AM!
We thought we’d take advantage of this peaceful moment to share some of the photos and stories from our trip so far.
