Our first full day in Maui

We didn't get going until about noon, the grounds around our property are so spectacular it was hard to leave. We took a long walk down the residential road, the homes around here are to die for...I know where to spend my lottery money when I win. :) No traffic up here.

Had a short drive to Hoopika Beach Lookout ,the waves were huge and there were lots of surfers out, we lingered over an hour or so just enjoying this view. We grabbed a hot dog from Bob's food truck up there and it was delicious, I recommend.

Paia was next and that town was a zoo! We could not get out of there fast enough, it was bumper to bumper traffic. Grabbed an ice coffee at Anthonys ,went to Mana Foods for a few things and ran back to our house as fast as we could. I am not a shopper, I did buy a couple of post cards.. :)

The evening was spent having cocktails,cheese and fruit on the lanai. The weather was perfect today, warm, sunny and a little breeze. I went for a swim in the pool, had it all to myself, there are two other couples up here in the house but we did not see them all day or evening.

Road to Hana tomorrow. (road to divorce?)

LOL! As Mamma says...keep that humor going and you will be fine!

Sounds like a lovely day. It also sounds like a place I would like- so private etc. but we like to snorkel too much so it's better for us to stay close to our favorite snorkel spots up in Kapalua.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Loving your reports and seeing the island through your eyes. Your trip is very similar to the way we plan to spend our eight nights on Kauai this spring. Totally chill! Enjoy every minute and thanks so much for checking in with us. Deb

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous, you should have an excellent Hana adventure!! Thanks for the update GLWEBB.

Brad B. this is a trip report from someone on island now. It's best if you would start your own thread. That way we can give you individual attention!!
