|2012 Trip to Maui August 7-14, 2012|
|We made it to Maui. Yea.|
|View from our condo balcony. Beach across the street.|
|This is the beach.
Kamaole Beach Park.
|First order of business is to find the Hall. The closest one is closed for construction. So we found the next closest one. In Kahului.|
|I heard Spam was popular in Hawaii. (Why, I wonder). Anyway I did see a lot of it in the stores. Then we went to Costco to get food for our stay and there it is, regular and reduced salt.. Big time Spam on sale. $4 a case off!|
|Evelyn and Sue head to the water.|
|Very rare photo
of John in shorts. May be the only one known to exist. Save it, it may be
worth big bucks someday.
This is at Makena Beach.
|Wed, Oct. 10 we do an all day drive to Hana and back making a big loop around the island. Tad drove which made it quite an adventure! We survived.|
|Lots of scenes like this along the way.|
|The waves were
powerful on the North side of the island! A testament to our Creator.
I made a short video of these waves.
|Early Hawaiians learned God's name from missionaries and used at least since 1852.|
|Overlooking a small village.|
|A lava tube. You can walk back in over a hundred feet.|
|The road gets narrow. Someone has to pull over if a car comes from the other direction.|
|One of 54 old narrow bridges on the way to Hana.|
|There is the rental car going through the jungle.|
|We made it to the seven "sacred pools". A half mile hike from the parking lot.|
|The young guys ignored the DO NOT JUMP sign.|
|Lindberg's grave. Died at 72.|
|Can't get enough of these scenes.|
|Got my Harley Heritage Softtail, now ready to ride Maui!|
|Going around the top of Maui on a narrow one lane road, I pass this isolated village, Old Kaumahina.|
|Hardly any cars on this narrow road that winds through the hills above the ocean on the North end of Maui.|
|Lunch time in Lahaina. Red ale and BBQ pork sandwich.|
|Sweet little cove
Great ride. I only went 136 miles, but I guess that is a lot on an island!
|Evelyn buys this
mystery fruit at a Maui Farmer's Market. What is it?
It is called "Dragon Fruit".
I paid $9 for this?
|One more lunch on the wharf before I head home..|
|And, one more
Tad, Sue and Evelyn are switching to another resort and will be coming home in another week or so.
One of us has to get back to work!
