Maui Vacation – Day 8

Coming Home Our flight wouldn’t leave until 1:30, so we had time to eat an unhurried breakfast, pack, and leave in plenty of time. It was a good thing we gave ourselves lots of time, though; traffic between the Honua Kai and Kahului Airport was thick and slow. We still had time to fill the […]

Maui Vacation – Day 7

On our last full day we were in no hurry. We had an unrushed breakfast, put on our hiking clothes and headed north again. We hiked about 5 miles at an abandoned golf course that has been converted to hiking trails. There were about a dozen geocaches along the trail, and we found almost all […]

Maui Vacation – Day 6

We awoke at 5:15am and were on the road at 5:30. Our destination was the photo location we scouted the previous day. We weren’t encouraged by the weather; it was raining and overcast during the very dark drive along the north shore of Maui. We got to our location 30 minutes before sunrise and waited […]

Maui Vacation – Day 5

We slept in again, not getting out of bed until about 7:15. After another workout in the fitness center, we ate a leisurely breakfast and talked about how to spend our day. We decided on a drive north along the coastal road that follows the north shore of the island. Along the drive we stopped […]

Maui Vacation – Day 4

We woke up on our own time this morning. I had set an alarm for 8:00 just in case, but we were both ready to get up just after 7:00. We spent 30 minutes in the fitness center, then showered and had breakfast in the room. At 9:30 we drove the short distance to Zensations […]

Maui Vacation – Day 3

Once again we arose at 6:00am. This time we had a more leisurely time. We had breakfast in our room before setting out once again for Haleakala. We had reserved a ziplining tour through zipline.com. We had driven past our meeting place the day before, so we were pretty sure we could get there. We […]

Maui Vacation – Day 2

Thanks to the early bedtime, we awoke a couple of minutes before our alarm went off at 6:00am. We put on our heaviest clothes, grabbed Clif Bars, water bottles, healthy snacks, and the camera gear and were out the door at 6:30. The first order of business was coffee. There was a coffee maker in […]

Maui Vacation – Day 1

San Jose to Lahaina We woke to our alarm at 4:45, showered, dressed and took care of those last-minute packing tasks that always linger. Bruce picked us up promptly at 6:00am, swaths of frost still evident on his car windows. We were to the airport, checked in, bags checked, and through security 35 minutes later. […]

Kauai – July 7, 2007

Saturday The alarm had been unnecessary. We woke up without it at 7:00. We spent some time getting our things packed—getting a head start on a hectic day. When we reached a stopping point, we headed to The Palms again for breakfast. It was more standard fare this day than the one before. We both […]

Kauai – July 6, 2007

Friday We slept until 7:00. We had run out of milk and cereal and our bagels were stale, so we headed to the hotel restaurant, The Palms, and were seated for breakfast. I ordered a breakfast very similar to the brunch I had eaten at the Koke’e Lodge three days before: eggs, Polynesian sausage, and […]
