See the Love Rock story here.
I decided to leave this Love Rock near one of my favorite places, a condominium in complex in Lahaina on the island of Maui which overlooks Lahaina Harbor. This is what the view looks like:
and this is the condo itself:
You are always looking out at the ocean.
So I went out on the lanai, after having a quiet time during which I placed the rock on a ceramic finger labyrinth:
I set in on the banister of the lanai. Looking straight down you can also see the complex's pool, which has two humpback whales painted on the bottom of it. (I wanted you to know that these were not just real whales swimming by---they look so realistic!)
I decided I wanted this rock to reside in the Pacific Ocean, maybe to wash up someday for someone to find.
So I enlisted LoveHubbie's help, and he threw it as far out as he could.
So in this way I felt as though something of me was left in one of my favorite places on earth.
The light is the show there, and when we stay we generally don't do anything else but stay on the lanai and watch the nightly entertainment (sunset) and the morning light and the changes---the sparkling water at different times of day, the honu (turtles) that pop their heads up, the whales further out.
I generally schedule this at the end of our vacation (like this time) so that we can prepare for re-entry. LoveHubbie has usually relaxed enough that he can enjoy more contemplative activities. I always feel as though I shine in Maui. I feel most like myself there. It was the perfect Love Rock for this time!
