This time last year, my beloved and I were in Hawaii. We missed the Hallowe’en Nor’easter of 2011 that dumped snow on our New England home and left many here without power or with lost trees and other damage.
Our hotel near Waikiki in Honolulu had a show each Friday night with hula dancers, stories, songs, and a wonderful fireworks display. As we stood on the beach and looked up, we enjoyed these wonderful bright lights in the perfect evening sky.
This year we weren’t so lucky – we were home for Hurricane Sandy, and spent a couple of days without power. Now as Daylight Savings time is about to end and evening temperatures in New England are growing frigid, the memories of our time in Hawaii last year are warming!
Where were you this time last year?
