We arrived late on Saturday night and had a bit of a drive to the resort. Not much open foodwise, but we scrounged a at grocery store up the road and woke up to this lovely view.
Breakfast at 808 Grindz. It's small and in a strip mall, you almost miss it, but it's so tasty and pretty cheap.
After breakfast we picked up some snorkel gear that we rented for the week and took off to some beaches. This is Honolua Bay, I think? You just park on the side of the tiny road and make your way through the trees.
Rough rocks, but good place to snorkel.
Then shave ice, of course. I still love Bahama Bucks best.
Dinner at Star Noodle. We LOVED it. And would go back again on this trip. And I'd fly back to Maui to eat it. It's delicious.
Monday morning surf lesson! Surfing is exhausting. We had a two hour lesson and then took a three hour nap.
Lunch at Leoda's Kitchen and Pie Shop after. It's great.
Our fancy hotel bathroom. We had a huge two bedroom suite and could've kept 6 people in there. Maybe we should have invited friends?
Monday afternoon we drove out to the Olivine Pools. I was sorta scared, since people have died out there, but we didn't get too close to the edge of crashing waves.
Stopped and caught the sunset.
Tuesday we went back to 808 Grindz and ordered those amazing pancakes again. Then it was time for Iao Valley State Park. It had been flooded and damaged, so not a lot to see, really.
Stopped in the big town on the way home for dinnerat Da Kitchen. Very busy and loud.
We stopped at Big Beach after the tour. It's beautiful, but the waves are really strong, and people have gotten hurt here. It's not a good place for swimming.
This truck was delicious.
Always with the cats.
Spent the afternoon closer to home.
Dinner downtown at Cool Cat Cafe - open air.
Last breakfast at Slappy Cakes.
One more trip to the Olivene Pools
One more slip on of the comfy robes.
One last hike.
And one more dinner at Star Noodle on the way back to the airport. These wings are bomb.
The ahi avo - so very good.
Please always eat at Star Noodle when you are in Maui.
Time to go home and start real married life.
