Today was another "field trip" day and the girls decided on the Maui Ocean Center. I had thought we would leave Honua Kai by 9:00 but we didn't leave until 10:30. I went for a short beach walk while the teenagers got themselves ready. The wind was calmer this morning than yesterday morning but based on the high surf warnings for the area tomorrow - Thursday, I'm guessing that it may not be the case for Tuesday.
We really enjoyed the aquarium and since it was only $8 for the 5 of us, we got the audio units too. I bought the tickets online yesterday at a bit of a savings too. I think we spent about an hour and half there. It was fun to learn something about the reefs and fish we have been seeing while snorkeling.
I wanted to see South Maui to see if we would want to stay there for our next visit, so we packed a lunch and drove to Wailea Beach. We ate on the grassy hill area before the beach. We also lucked out and got a prime parking spot. After we ate we went to the Shops of Wailea and of course had Lapperts Ice Cream. I love that place. We decided we all like where we are staying best!
I am now sitting on the our lanai deciding if I want to swim in the ocean or pool. I'm hoping to talk my husband into a snorkel while the conditions are still good but he is fading fast! Dinner is whatever we have in the condo for a meal enjoying our fabulous view.
Tomorrow is another resort day and Blackhawks game at the Westin bar. I think next stay we will stay at there but HK is lovely as well! There was a reason I picked HK over the Westin and I'm thinking it was price.
