Friday will be remembered as “the day we all got sunburned.” What else happened Friday? I don’t remember (whatever it was, it probably involved food). I just know we laid in the sun by the pool for hours on end, and the sunshine + wind + sprinkling rain combo kept us cool enough that we didn’t realize just how much sun we were really getting. It was okay though, we watched The Sandlot that night while applying copious amounts of aloe to our skin, and the burns turned into tans.
Now that I think about it, I do remember on Friday night we had fish tacos and other mexican deliciousness at Cilantro (see? it was food!) in Lahaina, and went to a few shops for chocolate covered macadamias to take home.
Saturday was the sad day that we had to leave (not until night, thankfully). We went back to The Gazebo for one more taste of their amazing banana mac nut pancakes and giant omelets, oh and that glorious eggs benedict. Spent the better part of the day in the sun by the pool, then packed up and said goodbye to the Maui Ocean Club for another year.
We stopped in Lahaina to check out the Saturday art show under the banyan tree. Local artists bring their work to showcase and sell, it’s pretty cool. There was everything from photography to jewelry to wood carvings to paintings to framed butterflies made out of exotic bird feathers. Then we drove to Pa’ia for another delicious dinner at the Pa’ia Fish Market, and on to the airport.
It was an awesome awesome trip! We loved every second. Most of today I was pretty much useless because my vacation withdrawals were so bad. Not to mention the six hour time difference made for some killer jet-lag. I am looking forward to more summer trips to come! I think I’m addicted to vacation.
Now please don’t forget about all the other posts down there. I did five or six Hawaii posts and I don’t want them to go unnoticed. I feel bad for the little guys if no one pays attention to them. Thanks!
