Today we head over to Maui. Our time on Lanai has gone way too fast - much faster than expected. In addition to daily work sessions, we had days that consisted (mostly) of hiking/exploring and beach time. We went down to the beach every day and we made the walk into the town at least once a day. We were just starting to get into our little grove, and today we leave. Surprisingly, we weren't able to get to everything on our list. We didn't have a chance to enjoy the facilities at our hotel nearly enough. For instance, we got to only half of the 18 hole putting green, and we never jumped on the chance to watch DVDs in the room.
As we've said, this has been a place where we've really had to keep an eye on expenses. Last evening, we splurged on a meal with new friends. On the other hand, we were shooting for one day with no expenses (eating only food that we had previously bought at the store). We ended up having two days with no expenses. That helps, as we head off for Maui - a bit less expensive but no picnic.
This is a view from our balcony where we ate most of our meals.
