2013 Hawaii - Day Thirteen - To Sacramento

We had a buffet breakfast at the hotel, packed up the room and were headed to the airport about 8:30 am. We caught a 11:19 am flight from Maui to Honolulu. With a two hour layover, we had a bite to eat. We boarded a 1:59 pm flight to Sacramento. With the time change, we landed a little ahead of schedule about 10:05 pm. We were home a little after 11:00 pm.

A couple of notes from the trip. First, Sharon spent the four days that we were on Maui talking about a bar called Blackie's that she had visited with Paul when she was on Maui 25 years ago. There was a building the right shape in the parking lot of a gas station, but she didn't think that it was the right location. As we were heading to the airport, Sharon googled it on her phone. It was the right building. The area around the bar was sold to a developer and closed in 1995.

Second, When we were in Italy last year, I noted how much bigger and stronger Jack has gotten. I got a little bit of a shock on Friday morning. As we were packing up the room, I turned and literally was standing nose to nose with Jack. As you can see in several of the pictures, he is almost as tall as I am...

Third, I wouldn't go back to Maui. It is too developed: too many people and too much traffic. I can see us going back to Kauai someday; the Gainsleys have a condo there. I can also see us going to the big island someday; the Wallens have a condo there. I am done with Maui...
