We have hula'ed home from Hawaii. We left in the snow and returned in the snow. I guess I should not have rubbed the three week cruise in so much, because as it turned out our temperatures were a bit on the cool side for the islands. But it didn't require knee socks or gloves, just a beach towel to cover up with.
It's always fun to hear folks complain about how good the food is as we wait for our dessert to be served. Everyone in life should have a couple of weeks in a row beyond living at home that someone makes their bed, empties their trash, straightens their room, and cleans the toothpaste out of the sink. Chocolates on the pillow and the toilet paper folded to a point are little touches to make cruisers feel special. Throw in towel animals decorating the room, from monkeys to swans, and the fun begins.
