As you can probably tell, the last few posts have indicated our trip to Hawaii was amazing. I know the pictures cannot do it any justice, but I hope to have those images seared in my mind until I’m there again.
Yesterday, I posted a ton of pics about a day we spent in Lahaina Town and the Drums of the Pacific Luau we attended. You can read about that HERE.
Today’s post is a similar set up. We had gone for a walk close to our resort and then we went for a drive back to Lahaina. In these pictures, I was just goofing off. Notice the guy coming up behind me. He was putting up peace signs too! Lol. Next, we jumped in the car and went to Lahaina to get tickets for our sunset cruise and more shave ice. The scenery was unbelievable. We weren’t sure if we wanted to go snorkeling on Molokini or if we wanted a sunset cruise. We opted for the sunset cruise because we thought it would be a great way to finish off the vacation.
We went back to the hotel, had dinner, and swam for the rest of the evening.
The next morning we packed up most of our belongings and spent a few hours at the beach. We then headed back to Lahaina to the wharf. This time we took a cab because we had dropped off the car earlier in the morning. Once we arrived in Lahaina, we were on the hunt for a few souvenirs. We stopped at the Lahaina General Store and found some great gifts. We had already bought our deck of cards (a tradition we have is to buy a deck of cards from every new city/state/country we visit). Next, it was on to the boat…after waiting almost two hours. We wanted to be one of the first ones there.We boarded the catamaran with the recommendation of doing so barefooted. These were the views leaving the harbor…along with the double rainbows. I don’t think I’ve ever seen something so beautiful! There’s one picture where the rainbow is extremely bright and vivid. The photos are not edited at all. I even saw where the other side of the rainbow was. Shortly after leaving the harbor, we were able to start eating the hot d’oeuvres they provided. After that, they brought out different foods on trays and made sure we always had something to drink. My drink of choice was Coke while the boys had Sprite. The two pictures below are of seared ahi tuna. It was great to see my son not be afraid to sit on the part of the catamaran that is open to the ocean. We all sat there from time to time and listened to the gentleman play his ukulele. Then came more views of the mountain…and the sunset…how unbelievably beautiful… The catamaran had already turned back for the harbor, so we continued to snap a few more pictures. Here is another photo of our catamaran…And when we had come off the boat, this was Lahaina at night. Again, many beautiful sights surrounded us… The next post about Hawaii will most likely be photos and a review of our resort and what this trip taught me.
So, what was your favorite part?
