299:: "Molokini Crater" // after a few days in Hana we continued our clockwise trip around the island to get to Maalaea Harbor where we went on a snorkeling trip to Molokini Crater. Have to admit I was a little panicked hopping off the boat into the middle of the ocean but it didn't take long to start enjoying the beautiful blue water coral reefs and multi colored sea life! #emletters #lettereveryday
324:: "Southwest fail" // I have shared a lot of love for @southwestair here but today I'm bummed. We booked flights months ago for Thanksgiving and today they let us down. Fortunately we're now scheduled for tomorrow but that still cuts out a day of family time that we don't get enough of! #emletters #lettereveryday
300:: "aloha" // we definitely loved the road less traveled aspect of Hana-- it felt much different from West Maui and we often felt like we had the island to ourselves watching sunrises and sunsets on all kinds of beaches (black sand red sand and everything in between!) #emletters #lettereveryday
"Don't sit on the sidelines. Engage with kindness and empathy." // I was struggling to find motivation for today's post but really loved these words from a friend. There's a lot I don't understand but empathy and kindness can go a long way.
