... has sent me an email to say the Pacific crossing to Honolulu was as rough as the Atlantic crossing to New York. They were delayed as we were in the first week and ended up staying an unplanned night in port at Honolulu. It was very wet in Honolulu. They were then a day late at Maui, where they had to take the tenders ashore. Those trips by tender were very rough and Wendy's tender was hit by a huge wave and water poured in.

At the top, before the brief decent down to the lagoon, there was a magnificent view if the arenal volcano. We got a photo of ourselves with it just in time - before a cloud front came in and covered it for the rest of the afternoon.

We were pumped, but gave ourselves an extra day to rest before going as we were exhausted from the adventure day and couldn't fathom shopping for food, organizing all of our stuff for a hike and another 4:00 am morning.
