maui 2013 | drechsel family vacation

We spent eight awesome nights in Maui earlier this month. And it was awesome. So awesome, in fact, that I still haven't re-adjusted into regular life. We stayed at the Kihei Beach Condos which was great, a little dated, but clean, and RIGHT on the ocean. I opted not to bring my big girl camera, so these shots were all taken with my Nikon P300. I definitely noticed a bit of a shutter lag as compared to the DSLR, but the compact size made it easy to toss in my purse along with an extra pair of underpants and pants (Charlie's, not mine), and snacks, and water, etc. Overall it was a nice little camera and I'm happy with the shots I got.

So without further adieu (or is it ado?), here they are:

 seatac airport, excited to go!

 after dinner at the kumu bar and grill at the marriott wailea
(this was taken by a lady WITH a big girl camera, on Grace's D7000)
