Back to Maine

We had an incredible time in Hawaii. We saw beautiful things in every direction we looked, went on amazing hikes, ate delicious things, swam and snorkled and sailed, and just relaxed in the sun. Claire loved it just as much as we did. We did have a bit of trouble getting there, and its quite a story. It definitely deserves to be told, but not today. The time change and sleeping on the plane are starting to catch up with me. It was quite the trip home. Not stressful, but very long. I haven't even loaded my pictures yet, so you'll have to wait for that. And when we got home we found out we weren't completely untouched by the huge storm that hit New England earlier in the week. We lost a bit of roofing, a bit of fencing, and we have some water in the basement. We'll probably need to get the ceiling in at least one room replaced. Its hard to tell now how much damage there is (I'm a little afraid to look in the attic), but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough, hopefully tomorrow morning. We were, however, very lucky. Our next door neighbor had much more damage, and other areas of the city are still without power. We hear it was quite the storm. We picked a great week to be in Hawaii!

Glad to hear you made it home safely. Sorry about the house. Hopefully your insurance will cover it all. It was great seeing you guys!

Oh no!
That doesn't sound like a very welcoming homecoming!
Glad your tip was fantastic. Wouldn't have thought it to be any less than that!

The house will be fine. Definitely good to weather the storm in Hawaii!
