Documentation of injuries

Well, let's see. I have mild sunburn on my shoulders (suspect the lotion rubbed off near the straps of my suit), I got a nice scrape pulling myself out of a tide-pool thingie yesterday, and shadowdaddy has some gnarly raw spots on his toes from wearing overly tight swim fins (those are a big ow and are slowing him down). I'll go peep at my burn in a minute and see if it improved overnight.

Day whatever: driving the road to Hana

OOOOHHH I was on the road too long. We left the house at 7:15 AM and got back to Kapului some time after six. SOOOO long.

Highlights of day: macademia nut sticky buns
Lowlight: realizing the drive was making my stomach feel funny when we were only 1 1/2 hours in.

Anyway - two hours after our final stop, we were able to say that we had, including yesterday, circumnavigated Maui. Dinner was not at Pinatas (closed) but at the (Frommer's highly ranked) Manana Garage, which despite serving "Latin inspired" cuisine, seemed to have totally forgotten about spicing their food. Wah.

Finally - I started Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let You Go in the parking lot of the [chain store] while waiting for shadowdaddy to come out, and I can tell already that this is a book that is going to break my heart.

Tomorrow: snorkeling Maui, and maybe a luau. Wednesday: kayaking La Perouse bay. Now: sleep.
