Day 103

The day started out with some back lit clouds…we are on the west side of Maui, and there is an old volcano between us and the Sunrise!

Day1510304

Then a run down the coast to see a rainbow up against the mountain.

Day1510302

We wandered around Lahiana for a while, too.

Day1510301

Here is a wire free version of those mountain valleys!

Day1510308

We watched the boats running back and forth.

Day1510307

Possibly a Cattle Egret.

Day 102: Whales from the Lanai!

We got to see a few whales off of the Lanai.  We are heading out on a Sunrise Whale Watching trip on Friday.  Right off the bat we saw some Whales blowing.

Day1510201

They were a long way off, but visible.

Then it was north up the coast.  It is awfully windy, and eventual turns into a jeep trail the voids your rental contract…

Day1510207

The gang all with cameras.

Day1510208

Interesting foliage.

Day1510209

Meanwhile, back at the Sands, there is opportunity for “arts” photos.  That usually means a bad photo that turns out good is a strange way.

Day1510211

Sunset.

Day 101: First Day on Maui!

Early morning iPadding on the Lanai…

Day1510101

What the background looks like in the early morning!

Day1510102

And after the sun is up.  We are on the West side of the island, so we get sunsets…

Day1510103

It was a lazy day, getting used to the heat and humidity.  We did make it down to the beach.  It is right at the resort…no crossing the road for us!

Day1510104

Someone lost these…I hope they find them!

Day1510105

Version one of the sunset.

Day1510106

Version two of the sunset.

Day1510107

Deciding on a swim.

Day1510108

After the sunset from our lanai.  Now with Tiki Torches!

Day1510109

More to come!

Day 100: Hawai’i!

A quiet dinner at Olive Garden the night before our flight…

Day1510001

…then the wild ride to Sea-Tac the next morning!

Day1510002

Once again we ride the tram at Sea-Tac.

Day1510003

Our Chariot to Maui awaits!

Day1510004

Once in flight the seat backs all have monitors.  While there were movies and stuff (usually for a fee) there was also a nice set of informational screens about the flight.

Day1510005

Moving fast…201 miles in 29 minutes!

Day1510006

Other screens include the Mach Number (0.8 something!) and -97F!

Day1510007

After six hours we approached Maui…

Day1510009

The excitement was palpable!

Day1510010

Errr…maybe not…

But at last there is something out the window besides wing!

Day1510015

LAND!

Day1510012

On the ground again!

Day1510014

Fun at the baggage carousel.  Can you find someone familiar?  Hint: it’s not Waldo!

Day1510016

After getting our rental car and diving to Lahiana (“Where the sugar cane grows, and living is slow!”) we stopped for a rainbow.

Day1510019

Since we were there for the rainbow we went on into Maui Brewing for dinner, too!

Day1510018

The rest of the gang…

Day1510017

Finally we settle into the Sands of Kahana, and watch a peaceful sunset.  Mahalo!

~Curtis in Hawai’i again! {!-{>

Day 099

We are on the way back to Hawai’i!  Maui this time.  On the way we went to the Roozengarten Tulip Garden.
