Just an update from when we left Toronto on Friday the flight to SFO then to OGG ran smoothly and on time. What a better experience at SFO compared to last year, running through Houston's airport to catch the next flight, taking the subway system....
Arrived around 5:15 pm, picked up our rental, no lineups then off to Honua Kai...we were very tired as it would be 6 hours ahead for us, so after settling in the condo we went to Dukes for a bite...the Tiki lamps were out, a slight breeze it was beautiful.
On Sat morning we got up to head to Haleakala...in the middle of the night, but we were awake, a beautiful experience, then stopped at Kula Lodge for breakfast...a beautiful setting and then we went to the swat meet.
Picked up some of Jeff's Jams, Maui macaroons, Paradise Soaps, enjoyed some freshly squeezed lemonade, it was very hot so we plan to go back next Sat to pick up a few other things to take home.
Sunday we were feeling it, so it was a beach day....today we are headed to Upcountry and Paia and wander about...
Joan, .there are so many flowering trees and bushes, the plumerias are beautiful . I wish I knew all the names, I have been taking photos to make a collage for at home.
It is very hot this morning but a slight breeze....love the birds chirping, the palms swaying and the Maui scents....oh so glad to be back
