We returned from vacation this past week!
Guess where we were — as if aloha wasn’t a huge giveaway! The Christmas tree above is in the lobby of the gorgeous Royal Hotel at Wakiki Beach in Honolulu. And this was the scene from the other end of the lobby:
Not that we stayed there — just a beautiful stop on our sojourn. Mostly we were on a ship with its own beautiful Christmas trees as we cruised from Los Angeles to Hawaii. There we went from one island to another and then cruised back to LA via Ensenada, Mexico. It was our first time in California, too; so we went a couple of days early to do the touristy thing. The cruise was a marvelous time spent with two of Wheels’ sisters and their misters – relaxing, and recharging! Back to reality with a head cold and a furnace that died the first night. But those are out of the way now, so let’s get down to Christmas and sharing A Pinch of Joy!
