I am currently in transit to a week stay in Hawaii. I'm presenting at a conference there and I am spending a couple days on each side of the conference to just relax and enjoy myself. I also have to finish one presentation and rework the other one. I just need time to do it.
The hotel I"m staying at only has internet in the lobby but they have some great furniture I can sit in and just work. I arrive tomorrow just after dinner time. I am going to walk down to the beach, even if its dark outside. I want to put my feet in the Pacific Ocean just because. I also want to get up early on Sunday to watch the sunrise over the ocean, then pick up some hot breakfast from the little Korean hole-in-the-wall and sit down till later on. I might even pop over to Ala Moana Shopping Center to catch a hula show. I will spend time working on my presentations and I want to sit on the beach and watch the sunset.
I will spend Sunday and Monday finishing the presentations. Tuesday and Wednesday is the conference and then I'll relax Thursday and Friday before I head back to work. I already know that it will be hard to go back to work after being in Hawaii. Every time I visit, I loose track of time and hate leaving. Maybe I'll move there in a couple of years, who knows.
Did I pack a camera? Yes. I plan to take some photos to add to my current collection. Pictures I can look at when there is a cold snowy blizzard raging outside and I can't see anything past my porch. Photos to warm me when I'm cold. Photos to just have to enjoy.
