trashy romance novels + underwater cameras

Tec and I recently returned home from here.  It was paradise and work, all rolled into one.  Truthfully, it was a lot of paradise and some work.  It was sort of an early anniversary trip, and it was fantastic.  

I finished the books I brought for the beach before I got off the plane, so I resorted to grocery store romance novels.  I'd never read one, so I went for the trashiest I could find.  Go big or go home, right?  OK, judge me.  They were the first two I'd ever read, and probably not the last two.  Sometimes it's nice to have mindless, easy reads.  It's kind of like watching reality TV or a sappy movie, I think: you get to turn your brain off and just enjoy the laziness of it all.

Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone.  We took all of your advice--we drove the road to Hana (and instead of turning around and driving the road back, we kept driving south and saw some of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen; images to come), ate at Mama's Fish House, ate fresh pineapple and coconut and snorkeled.  Thanks again!

What a beautiful place! Can you tell us what water camera you used? I've had bad experiences with water cameras.

Thanks!

Hey Leslie!

The camera was Walgreen's brand. $10 and it ain't half bad! ;)
