We love Maui and have been several times as it's a not-tooooo-long, non-stop flight from San Diego. And it's so relaxing there!
Here is the view from the lanai at the condo we rented. (If the view alone doesn't make you relax, doesn't the word lanai? So much more serene sounding than balcony.)
We love to go for a long walk every morning when we are there. We made some kitty friends on one walk....
...and some bird friends.
We also saw this cool carved gate on one of our walks, which I attempted to bigify so you can see there's a little dog on it. (Walking with a rooster and a snowman.... I don't know why.)
We also did a lot of beach-going and swimming while we were there. I swear, every single time I went in the water there was a turtle RIGHT THERE. It was awesome. I swam with this guy at Secret Beach (which is our new favorite Maui beach since it has a nice calm little spot to get in the water):
|Yes, that dark blob is a turtle. My swimming buddy.|
As with other years that we've gone, we saw many dogs at the beach, but the hubs was bummed because none of them would come up to say hi! Until our last night, one finally came over to say hello. The hubs was a happy boy.
One night early in our trip we went down to the beach to watch the sunset, and it just kept getting better!
The sunsets were never as good as that first one, but I did manage to catch this cute silhouette of this guy cruising past one night... (He did NOT come say hi to us. Despite our desperate pleas. Beast.)
That's it! That's our trip in a handful of pics! Throw in some naps, some shave ice, and a cocktail on the lanai every night and you've got the sum total of our trip!
Any fun travel plans in your future?
