Bucket List

A bucket list is a catalog of all the things we want to do before we die—before we kick the bucket.

I’m not even 50 years old yet. In fact, 50 is a long ways off! It’s never too soon to assemble that bucket list because fulfilling some of my long-held dreams may take a while. I figure it’s time to get on it.

Two days ago I was able to check something off my bucket list. The event, in fact, inspired me to go ahead and start building my wish list. Tom and I snorkeled off the coast of Maui, Hawaii.

We boarded a boat and sat up top in the fresh air. Our first stop was Molokini Crater.

The waters surrounding the Crater are warm, blue, and crystal clear. The clusters of coral and the schools of fish seemed close enough to touch. It was gorgeous.

After spending a glorious hour in the water, we climbed back onto the boat and headed to the small island of Lanai. The beautiful privately-owned island is located West of Maui and is home to around 2,000 people.

We docked in a magnificent cove, surrounded by majestic cliffs. We once again donned our snorkel gear and jumped into the water. We spent another hour or so in the warm enchanting waters.

I am a water girl for sure. I could happily swim every single day of the year. Oh to live in a house with a swimming pool, or better yet—an ocean outside my front door!

  1. I'll be there in 40 days!!! I can't wait. Although, I broke my ankle on a snorkel excursion to Lanai last year, so I'll be stepping very carefully.
