Bye Maui!

Maui was such a great trip. I would head back there in a flash! The warm moist air and relaxing atmosphere were just what the doctor ordered. Thanks Mom and Dad Sinclair for a fabulous trip. We couldn't have done it without you and can't wait to share our stories! Doesn't that guy look refreshed? Posted by Picasa

Thank you Sun!

After a couple of worried cloudy, rainy days, the sun came out again. We rushed to Napili once again to take it all in. What a way to cap it all off! Posted by Picasa

Hono Koa

The Hono Koa was good to us. Tacky fonts aside, it was a classy place to stay! Posted by Picasa

Even on a cloudy day, we found a way to enjoy ourselves. Here is Carrie at the Pupu Lounge in Kihei enjoying a Tropical whatsit after an exhausting morning of snorkeling near Makena Beach. Posted by Picasa

Carrie Palms

Closed Beach

This was one of the beaches that they closed. It was still alright to swim, but the night before had washed out a lot of it. Kapalua Beach next to here was completely washed out and there was nowhere to sit there. Posted by Picasa

Sunset at Ka'anapali Beach. Posted by Picasa

The Honeymooners

This is Carrie and me at Ka'anapali Beach watching the sunset. We had a few people take pictures of us, but people are quite worthless at doing that and none really turned out. C'est la vie! Posted by Picasa


This was my moment of zen on the trip. It was early on in the week and I didn't have a care in the world. I must have stood here looking out at the ocean and the beach for 25 minutes without moving; it could have been longer, I just wasn't paying attention. Posted by Picasa

Napili Beach

This was probably our favourite beach and definitely the one we frequented the most. Not a far drive from our condo, when other beaches were closed, Napili offered a safe haven. The beach was very laid back, but still a lot of fun. Posted by Picasa

Maui 2006

This is the view from our condo at the Hono Koa near Ka'anapali. Not too shabby! Posted by Picasa

I entered my first squash tournament this weekend. I was 2-2 and lost both my games to Juniors! I couldn't believe it at the time but apparenty those sandbagging little ... players are pretty good and win these tournaments all the time. I will just take my medicine thank you! Am I a big dork or what!? Posted by Picasa

Let Me Just Check With My Wife

After a year of marriage, I am still discovering the hidden benefits to holy matrimony. Of course there is all the cliched advantages like someone to talk to, share stuff with, and received support from, but I am talking about much more selfish bonuses here. For example, I am a sucker for a good salesman and I could never before get out of a purchase. When I say I am a sucker, I mean it. I am left totally powerless by a good salesman, but now I have a new shield, or rather, deflector.

I went in to a tanning studio yesterday (take a minute... roll your eyes... okay) because we are headed to Maui at the end of the month and I don't want to look like Casper. Now, this guy wasn't a great salesman, but I just don't know how to say no. So, now I say, "I like what your selling here, but I have to check with my wife." It is an awesome way out of this situation. I know inside he is calling me a wuss, but there is no comeback to it. They just accept it! Is it bad to shamelessly use my wife as a deflector in her absense?

Hockey Season Starts!

It is that time of year again. The mercury is sinking, leaves are falling and now the puck is dropping. My beloved Canucks started their season off on the right foot tonight with a 3-1 victory in a near-empty Joe Louis Arena. Much to Carrie's chagrin, I will be spending most of my Saturday nights watching hockey. I am hopeless!

It should be quite the season. There have been lots of changes around the the league. It is unpredictable!

Waterton 2006

Well, here you have it: Waterton 2006. It was a little less crazy than last year (i.e. no one had to leave the game table and no one was accused of ruining the whole weekend for everyone.) Big 2: Boxhead Edition was dropped for the less intense Balderdash and later L.

We didn't see any bears, but that wasn't without trying. We didn't go as far as to make a steak suit; serenading was our weapon of choice. Nick's version of Michael Jackson's hit Man in the Mirror, Bear in the Mirror was certainly a highlight. Actually any song that could remotely fit "bear" into the lyrics was sung in the van to and from Cameron Lake. But it wasn't enough to coax any bears into sight.

Nick was certainly back to himself on the golf course. I will leave it at that.

Thanks to Kevin and Tina for another wonderful weekend!
