I can hardly bear the thought of getting on a plane and leaving this place, but the time has come.
My face is puffy and swollen from all the sun, my skin is pruned from all the water, and my pants are pinchy and tight from all the food.
Oh, I could write for days about the gluttony alone.
Instead, I will pack our bags and head for home with the memory of a fabulous trip and the relief that no one got sick (except for those few unmentionable hours on the Road to Hell).
Aloha, Hawaii. Mahalo from the bottom of my heart.
