Things we did in Maui.....

Here are a few things we did in Maui.......

Visited the famous Banyan Tree,

went whale watching,

(I took about 35 pictures and these were the best I got:(

visited a pineapple plantation,

and stopped at a couple of fruit markets.
(maybe I should have held the fruit a little higher....or lower haha!)

We also ate some shaved ice.....
(or shave ice as the Hawaiians call it)

and doughnuts,

lounged at the beach

and swimming pool,

ate at some fun restaurants.....


(and Seafood)

visited Iao State Park

and just enjoyed the beautiful scenery around us.

A couple of other things.....  I found a new TV show.  It's called Flea Market Flip on the HGTV channel.  While Rick went Scuba Diving one morning I watched 2 1/2 hours of it!!  I felt like a junkie because I couldn't bring myself to turn it off.  It was awesome!  I most likely won't be seeing it again whereas we don't have cable TV but it was fun all the same:) 

We did a little shopping in Lahaina and I brought home a couple of fun beaded items.  Rick found a hat for his collection and we found some cute stuffed animals for the kiddies.

On Sunday after church we took a drive to the North Shore.  The surfers were going at it in those huge waves and they were fun to watch.  We also found a HUGE blowhole.  The water spewed out about 40 feet high.  Pretty cool!

After Rick went diving he thought it would be fun to go on a night dive since he hasn't ever done that.  He was all set to go but towards the end of our trip we got some rain and wind and the conditions weren't good enough so he wasn't able to go.  I was a little relieved because frankly I worry enough about him diving in the daytime let alone the pitch black waters of the night!  

One thing that is amazing about Maui is all of the whales.  They fill the waters!!  It is so fun just to watch from the shore (or even driving down the coast) because they are constantly spouting, slapping tails, and breaching.  We saw a lot of that!  Rick was in heaven:)

We enjoyed our Mustang Convertible.  My hair was always a mess because of it so I just ended up wearing a hat most of the time.  Every time we ride in a convertible Rick thinks he wants to buy one.  HAHA!  He would love to have a hard top.  We looked online the other night at them.  As if......... was a marvelous trip!!
