Well I think I finally arrived to the Vacation Zone. That place where you just are not worried about anything and haven’t checked emails for a few days and you are totally ok with that. 🙂
We are staying in a beautiful quiet place close to Maliko Bay just east of Paia, Maui. We arrived late Friday evening, grabbed some groceries and dinner and got settled in. The pool here is amazing! I could totally do a pool at home. As a matter of fact I fell asleep on a lounger I was so tired. One of the things we wanted to do was go on the Piilani and Hana Highways and see that side of Maui. I had heard the drive is so beautiful but pretty slow going. Sharp turns, pretty much a gravel road at times and single lane. This was what we spent doing most of Saturday. Some pics below.
Sunday church was at 9 am so drove in to Kahului. I had forgot it was Fast Sunday so had made a big breakfast. I don’t normally share my testimony when traveling but I think with such a warm welcome and the intense beauty we had witnessed on Saturday I had to share. Wonderful Saints in Maui. We had our first truly relaxing day Sunday. Caught a nap, enjoyed the pool, watched a movie and had a great dinner.
Monday we spent time at Hookipa Beach which is about 10 minutes from where we are staying. We had dinner at Rock & Brews in Paia. Wings, pizza, and burgers plius these rootbeer floats which were $8.95 each. Seriously dinner was over $200. It was a fun place and busy. After a day at the beach though you are hungry.
Tuesday we went exploring again this time down in Wailea. I have heard from many it is the best place to go on Maui. There are so many places I’m sure it is just one of the best. Wailea did impress.
One of my favorite things is how open to the outdoors these homes are. You open entire walls up to the outside. It’s like sleeping outside. Sex outside. 😇 We even have an outdoor shower as part of the Master Suite. This property even has two bathrooms in the Master Suite. One for each of us. It is crazy lol. We leave here in 7 hours and I thank the Hawaiian Gods for sparing us the rain and giving us many memories.
We are off to the Big Island of Hawaii and my parents will arrive later today. I can’t wait to see them and so happy they are coming for their first real vacation in many years. Oh I almost forgot! Sunrises and Sunsets. WOW!
