My body clock is finally starting to adjust. I didn’t wake until 6 this morning.
Made lilikoi danishes for breakfast with the help of Pillsbury crescent rolls. These were very yummy and a hit with the crowd, who tends to be picky about trying new things.
Today we are going to snorkel Kapalua. Got over to the lot by 8:30 and it was full. We did find a shady spot on the side of the road. I’m in search of an octopus along with turtles today. Hoping I have some of Rena’s luck with the fishes. The water had really good visibility once you got out a little ways. While we did see a large number of fish, we didn’t find what we were searching for today. Busted again.
After leftovers at the condo, we went down the lobby for the craft fair that was going on. Saw Binky’s had a table and said hello. We then found a photographer, John, who’s been on the island for 3 years after buying a one-way ticket. Talked to him for a long time and bought a few pictures. Very nice guy. My niece definitely got a bug put in her ear about coming to Maui and being a photographer. (Her goal is to have her own studio.)
Freshened up a bit then headed out to Kaanapali to catch our sunset sail with Trilogy. What a fun activity! We sat up front and got a little wet at times, but that was half the fun. It was very windy and a little choppy. We were treated to rainbows that seemed to end at KShores. Magical.
Pupus were served along with drinks. We tried taro rolls for the first time. Really good. The comment was “they don’t taste purple”. Gee, how should purple taste? Anyway, the picky eater gave it a thumbs up.
Also, the captain said a baby humpback whale was spotted close to us. While some of the crew saw it surface, we did not. I was kind of worried about the “little” guy thinking it lost its mother. Then I read once we got home that a momma and her calf were spotted the next week. I’m hoping it’s the same whale.
After that, we came back and took a dip in the hot tub then watched a movie. The end of another lovely day on Maui.
