The Robbins family from Martinez -- Tim, Mary, Clay and Karlee -- enjoyed a vacation in Maui, Hawaii in January, where they stopped during a trip to the Iao Valley to catch up on the community news in the Pleasant Hill/Martinez Record. In addition to snorkeling in several locations and sport fishing (Kim caught a 70-pound bill fish), the group attended the Old Town Lahaina Luau. Their favorite experience was a whale-watching adventure, they were "mugged" several times (when the whales come very close to the boat and the captain has to turn off the engines until the whales decide to move away).
It doesn't matter if your time away is spent across the Bay or across the country -- remember to pack the Record to keep up with news of the community, and then show your neighbors where you have been.
