Day 12 - Sunday, December 29, 2013
Slept in today, woke up around 10. I guess all these activities are taking a toll on me.
I suggest to The Girls we lounge at the beach in front of the Westin. We can hang the new hammock around those really cool trees. Pack a bag, grab the snorkel gear and off we go...
The surf is rough today, like yesterday, and the winds are blowing. Very different from when we arrived on Maui on December 18. We tried to snorkel but the conditions were not good. DW remembered the advice from our outrigger guide and refused to go in. DD agreed and was having none of it, not even wanting to swim. I of course go in and at least try. The visibility was poor, really poor. Figured if I go further out it will get better. The visibility did get better however the surf was rough. I head back to shore at least knowing I tried! The rest of the day is spent at the pool. DD has another important date with the slide.
After a few hours, DW suggest we go to the gym then go to the Sheraton for the dive ceremony. Visions of my sunset sail adventure from day 3 enter my mind....
This time, I opt to drive to the Sheraton, use valet since we are running late. It's not crowded and we get a table right away. Order nachos and an adult beverage for me. Ceremony was ok. Was able to take a pic of The Girls was/ the Diver. Watched the sunset then headed out. I was given a discount for the valet since we ate at the restaurant, $5 total. Not bad.
Decided to go to the movies tonight so off we go to Lahaina. I was gonna go to the Maui mall but it was to far and was afraid we wouldn't make show time, so settled on Lahaina. Nice little theater tucked in the back. I was surprised with the number of visitors. The theater was pretty full.
After the movies we walked around for a bit, tried to get something to eat but it was after 9 and kitchens were closed. Decided to head back to HK and play cards.
Not much today, sort of took it easy and had quality family time. Our vacation is coming to an end, only 2 full days left :(
