Just got back from my trip to the Big Island (sans Big Sis — photos and journal to come) to find a welcome surprise waiting in my mail box. Seems that my article on diving with great whites received an Honorable Mention for feature article in the 2007 Writer’s Digest contest. Results haven’t been posted online just yet, but I’m pretty sure they’ll be available here when they are.
Considering how heartbroken I was to leave Hawaii behind, this news definitely made the transition back to everyday life much more bearable. Now, off to plan the next trip!
Note: “Great White of Guadalupe” was originally published on AOL Travel, but since AOL is inanely removing all of its content — nice SEO move — my article no longer lives there. Thus, I’m now pointing to TravelExplorations.com.
