Merry Christmas, dear reader! James and I are not on Maui this Christmas – we’re in Paris, eating lots of wonderful bread – so we can’t offer you firsthand advice about what to do … except …. of course we can, a little.
Our typical tropical Christmases include:
… Taking in a decadent view while eating a decadent meal (favorite buffets include The Four Seasons, Grand Wailea, Makena Golf Resort, the Ritz in Kapalua, favorite favorite special restaurants include I’o or Pacific’o, David Paul’s Island Grill, Lahaina Grill, Pineapple Grill, Spago, Capische?, and Mama’s Fish House)…
We send you many warm thoughts from Paris, where they know how to make incredible chocolat chaud and many other beautiful things. As much fun as this is, we’re already missing our lovely tropical home, and our two little white dogs, Kanga and Roo.
(Don’t worry, they are being taken care of around the clock by our fabulous pet sitter, MauiFriend (who also happens to be a great friend and realtor). She spoils them with many runs on the beach – you can see a video on her Facebook page. We’re watching this one over and over to soothe our doggie-loneliness this Christmas: Kanga and Roo run on the beach.)
