How I could go to Maui and be completely unaware that it is 3 hours behind us in Sacramento is a puzzler. But when you think about it, I generally only go to the islands in the winter. In the winter, Hawaii is not on daylight-saving time, so it's only a 2-hour difference. I imagine there are many others like me who did not realize that Hawaii does not observe daylight-saving.
I read a response to one of my blogs from my agent friend in Sacramento who said she likes to go to Maui because it's only a 2-hour difference so you can get all your work done in the morning. Surprise, Myrl, guess what? It's 3 hours in the summer. But one can still get all of her work done in the mornings. Not to mention, visiting Maui over the 4th of July is a great time to go because almost everybody else is on vacation, too.
You can read more in my personal blog today and see a stunning photo of the Grand Wailea Resort where we went to dinner at Humuhumunukunukuapua'a oceanside restaurant our last night on the island. See Back from Maui and Aloha Time.
