We got rained out for our helicopter tour again and could not reschedule since we were leaving tomorrow and no times available.
We decided to drive to south Maui again. We met my daughter and sat on a beach in Makena, (stopped along the way and got another one of those great sandwiches from our favorite cafe in Kihei. The waves were rough so we couldn't snorkel, we just enjoyed the view and beach. I could have sat there all day.
That evening we ate at Kimo's again. My husband got the steak and I got the swordfish. Delicious. We also got the lava dessert free because we were there the day before. The four of us devoured it!
Day 6, last day
Packing up is sad. We got everything packed and checked out of the condo, then headed north to blow hole. That was really cool to see. My daughter and her husband walked down to see the heart shaped rock. I figured if I tried to walk down there I'd be taking a trip to the emergency room! So my husband and I just enjoyed the view from above. She took a picture of her and her husband by the heart rock and is making it into a picture to announce something special! She wants to wait until she is 3 months pregnant (two more weeks) and she's going to post the picture announcement. shhhh, I'm not supposed to tell anyone, so please keep my secret! (thank goodness she's not a member of this sight!)
On the way back from the drive we stopped and watched some locals carve wood. We bought a couple tokens from them. Hey, I don't like to buy junk from China, so I loved that we supported the locals.
Ate at the Maui brewery. Had a great burger. Stopped in Lahaina and walked around again, headed east towards the airport, took our time. Stopped and picked up a case of Pineapple from Mr. Pineapple to bring home. Then sadly returned our rental, and made dreaded trip to the airport. Then the worst part of our vacation, the 11 hour flight home.
But I can say, this was the best vacation my husband and I have ever had. It was so worth the two years saving to see such an amazing place. I have put pictures in my office making all my co workers jealous and wanting to go!
Thanks everyone for all your advice in helping to make this bucket list item checked.
