The bags are getting packed, the kits are all finished, we’ve amassed a bunch of door prizes, and your sewing machines await! I’m practicing the ukulele, and bringing along a bag of quilts for my show and tell for the concerts.
In one week we’ll be embarking on our 15 day dream cruise to Hawaii!
As you’re packing, remember that Hawaii no longer uses plastic bags. If you’re planning to do some shopping, you might just throw in a cloth bag for your use there. They’re always very handy to have anyway.
I’ve been checking the weather and it looks as if we might get some rain while we’re there – it won’t be cold, just wet, so bring along some rain gear (unless you intend to live in your bathing suit!). Rain is the reason we’ll see so many beautiful flowers in Hilo and on the other islands, and if you live in the west, this summer’s drought means you will never complain about a little rain.
I’ve decided to throw in a pair of binoculars in my suitcase, in case I happen to be within a kilometre of a whale. (No guarantee, because it will be very early in the humpback whale spotting season.)
What else do you think you’ll need for this cruise? Leave a message in the comments below. It could be helpful for some of your fellow cruisers.
