Maui 2014

Pictures from our amazing trip to Maui, Hawaii!  February 16 to 25, 2014.  A wonderfully warm and humid place.  I shrivelled up and aged 90 years upon returning and stepping into the super dry frigid Edmonton air.  On a previous trip I had slipped on some rocks and fallen with our camera in hand, smashing the camera on the rocks.  It still works but it has some issues.  The main issue is the memory.  It does not always recognize the stick causing many pictures to be saved to the camera itself, missed entirely because I have to reset the connection and make it stay, or it takes the pictures but chooses not to save it.  No surprise we will be investing in a new camera for our next trip.  I apologize it there are any blurry or too bright issues, I also had a problem with the lens and shutter.  Sigh.  All in all it was a great trip.  I never imagined myself going there but I can definitely see us going many times to come.  I hope you enjoy our pictures!

    absolutley beautiful pics, Chris. Thanks so much for sharing them.Those sunset’s are awesome. You must have a great camera, cause those flower’s were stunning. I think I saw grey on the side of your head, which I can’t believe because you are so young still. But You look really handsome and besides you and Jamie look so happy and that’s what I love the most about these pics. Good for you, Chris! Looks to me like you too had fun. Welcome home to Sibieria! 😉
