1. Needless to say, #thenardcat is extremely happy I’m home. He hasn’t stopped purring since last night. #maynardmonday #maynardofig #orangetabby #catstagram #catsofinstagram #hepurrsloudly

     
  2. Thanks for the memories, Hawaii, for helping me work out some fears, and for being home to my heart.

  3. Today is my last full day in Hawaii, and I could cry.  Here’s a sunrise pic from my first morning here.

  4. This is the right way to drink in Hawaii: bobbing in the water with drink in hand. *tube optional, but bobbing is way more fun with it.

  6. I was starting to feel sad that I was missing all the gnarly waves back home, and then I looked through my photos from yesterday.  There’s nothing to be sad about.  I’ve been coming to this island for at least 20 years and it’s beauty never ceases to amaze me.  Thanks, Lord, for this week of rest and time with family at our home away from home.

  8. I tried to pack #thenardcat, but in the end I decided not to. I don’t think Hawaii could handle this land shark. #vsco #maynardmonday #maynardofig #catstagram #catsofinstagram #orangetabby
