Hello my friend~ I stopped by TA and was happy to see a familiar face in a few of the posts!!

I'm ready for a trip to Maui for sure. Only in the planning stages, of course, but can you tell me the name of the place you stayed in Hana?

Am doing well. Healing process is slow (emotionally). Doctor keeps telling me I am lucky to be alive. As soon as I'm up to it, I'd like to meet up with you. By the way, we named the baby. Kalani. Hawaiian for "of the heavens"

Miss you and am looking forward to getting the name of the spot in Hana. Am thinking about a trip back next year. (Either that, or a trip to Costa Rica)

Much love my friend,


Austin, Texas

Love, I'm so sorry to hear about the baby.

My prayers are with you.

As for Hana, we stayed at Tradewinds Tropicals in the "Hana Cabana". I was smoking then (I quit last month) and was able to puff on the porch. It's wonderful, 150/night-2 night minimum.

Full kitchen, comfy queen bed, living area, porch with jacuzzi for 2 and a gas hibachi. It's in the middle of a tropical flower farm-just awesome. You can see so many stars from the hot tub, lookingup and back-I've never seen so many.

It's right down the road from Wainapanapa (sp?) State Park.

Thanks MauiKitty. It looks great.

congrats on being a non smoker! good for you. If I remember correctly you had lost quite a bit of weight before your Maui trip too. that must feel really great, to be fitter and to be a non smoker. WOW. How inspiring.

Thanks again for the tip

Thoughts and good wishes from me as well.

Hana Sunrise House was awesome, in my opinion, but no smoking even on the screened-in porch....
