Just another day in paradise, or rather, Hawaii.

I am currently on a 13-day group tour with about three dozen 100.5 The River listeners, trekking across Hawaii with YMT Vacations. We are staying on Maui.

On Thursday, we hit the links at Royal Kāʻanapali Golf Club. I golfed a round with Bob and Jane Czerew, Char and Skip Tomkins and Tom Brechtimg.

Then, we had a wonderful dinner and show at the Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel , where we're staying in Kāʻanapali.

Today, we head for the Big Island, Hawai'i, and Kona.
