Holiday Trip report- Days 5 & 6

Finally finished Thursday and Friday...not taking as many pictures and just relaxing. Finally went snorkeling today so that will be in the next blog. This includes our second whale watch.

Love all the shots. I could ride around all day watching the Spinners. They completely fascinate me. I'd have a tough time on a whale watch being that close though. I'd be faking losing my footing and falling in. Oh, and since I have a waterproof camera I may as well get some shots. LOL. Next time on the island I need to look for that ring you got Rena. I just happen to know someone that plumeria's and honu's are two of her favorite things.

I was talking to a friend today at a birthday/luau party about your shots of Honolua and how nice it was there right now. Can't wait for the snorkel shots. Thanks for for helping us Maui addicts with our addiction.

Just catching up with your reports..half over, where does time fly. Glad snorkeling for the family is back in the picture and Rena is A-OK.

Nice whale watch trip pictures.

Thanks for helping our Maui fix with your blog.

That was a spectacular mix of whale and spinner dolphins! Loved the photo of the dolphin shooting straight up out of the water! I felt like I was out on the water with you. You really did capture some wonderful photos and you make it seem so easy.

Very happy to hear the all clear for snorkeling has been given and looking forward to those photos! Love Rena's ring and interested in the art you were checking out! Have a fun day today and just enjoy the moments! You have lots of time left to enjoy........Deb

Anuenue, honu, kohola, nai'a -- does it get any better than this?!! Very cool breach with Kaho‘olawe backdrop.

Beautiful ring.

Wow love your pictures. You had awedome luck on both tours.

We went out on the bigger boat yesterday and not much luck sadly. We did see two babies but just thier little tails. The girl who was doing the talking was great.

I am sure the smaller boats can get up closer.

Love the little ring. Today is our last full day, went to quick.

Love Rena's ring. Got Binkys on my list to stop by. Put Captain Steve on the list too. Just booked our condo last night for Jan/Feb 2015. Your pictures made me do it ! Lol
