A Good Place On Maui To Get Away From It All

My current get-away-from-it-all spot is boring--my bed with a good book--so I write instead about my former get-away-from-it-all spot.

Shivers Up And Down My Entire Body!

At this very moment, the temperature in Kapolei, Hawaii is 62 degrees. I am freezing my ass off!
