I’ve tagged all the Maui stuff with vacation-Maui. Click it and you get snippets of all posts in reverse chrono. All the pictures are in this Flickr set. Here are food posts: O’o Farms, Grandma’s, Coffee, Day Four, Day Three, Day Two, Day One. Here are miscellaneous pictures/videos: Honolua Bay, Guidebook, Waves, Surfer, and Lahaina. It was a laid-back six days.
We scrambled down the rocks and had a great view of the couple dozen surfers at Honolua Bay today. Gail talked to a surfer man who said it was probably one of the last days for good waves on this part of the island. This same surfer told Gail, “It’s a gentleman’s sport” and that the snorkeling on the other side of the bay is killer.
We used Maui Revealed the last time we were here but this time some friends loaned us the Lonely Planet guidebook (which included personalized, analog annotations). I’m not here to assess which one was better, but we loved the Lonely Planet. It was accurate, well-organized, and insightful. Thanks Mike and Linda.
These things roll in all day. I can’t stop staring at them. I shot this next to the fifth tee box on the Kapalua golf course (not the Plantation course, of course).
This person caught a nice wave on Honolua Bay in the desolate northwest corner of Maui.
