Day 8

Aloha again from Napili. It is so beautiful here, sigh...

Snorkel end again at Honokeana and used my underwater camera, got great pics of honu's. They are so majestic.

I have to say I was very impressed with the sunset show at Fleetwood's, what an amazing venue. Let me tell you, bagpipes T sunset with Lanai in the background, well, lets just say tears were involved....

Dinner at Kimos was good, had never dined there before. Had coconut crusted marlin which was a first for me. Really good and big portions. Brought us the famous Hula pie, whoa is it big. Thought it would be like mud pie... Yummy!

Breakfast on Saturday at Leodas Pies. Had veggie frittata, really good! Of course took home box full of yummy stuff for later ... Ate the Olowalu lime pie last night, I swear all we do is eat (not really but feels like it).

Dinner in last night, cooked ribs and sweet potatoe fries with wedge salad, yum. Beautiful sunset in the pouring rain, loved how everyone ran for cover, hubby and I just rode it out, laughing...doesn't get better than that! Beautiful rainbow on Napili....ahhh...

Today went to Honoloa Bat and got a half of a Huli Huli chicken for lunch, uh, yum!!!

The kid we got it from is there everyday at the vista point above the bay. Not our last visit....

Tonite, off to OLL with my friend who lives here, it's her birthday.

Five more full days after today, still in see that we are here.

A very grateful Babs

Oh, have a wonderful time at the OLL tonight! And how nice to be able to celebrate a birthday with your friend!

You didn't mention how you liked Uncle Willie????? I have only seen him at Mulligan's.

Thanks for checking in with us again. I hope you don't experience any rain tonight at the OLL!

I hope you had a great time at the Old Lahania Luau. We have been twice and have always enjoyed it.

Savour every minute of your last five days.

Enjoying your reports! I been meaning to ask if the sunset show at Fleetwoods with the bagpipes is an adult only venue or is it kid friendly? We would all love (kids included) to see this show.

Hi Babs, Yes it sure is beautiful there, Thanks for sharing your trip with us. It's really nice to see all my TA friends, the regular posters here on the Maui board, each get our time on the island.

Of course its really nice to see a newcomer take their first trip too.

But I guess I like hearing from you and other return visitors, because I really get where you're coming from. That to *be* there is the greatest joy. Otherwise, why would we keep going back?

Hope you had a great time at the Luau and that you have a blast for the rest of your trip.
