aloha vacation #1. maui upcountry.

January 16.

i never thought i would be so cold in hawaii (for the record, i’m always cold, but in hawaii?).

we are staying up in gale and margaret’s cottage in kula which is up the mountain a ways.  it’s around 50 degrees in the morning!  i guess i didn’t realize that you could find the two extremes in hawaii because it’s always pictured as this really hot, tropical place.  i LOVE it upcountry though.  it’s so green and lush (until you get up to the crater).

today was a beach/rest day.  we have blisters (buku’s on his lips, mine on my feet).  and we finally get to see margaret tonight and eat yummy filipino dinner!

we went to makena beach.  we drove into lahaina (very touristy).  we caught the sunset on a beach somewhere between lahaina and kihei.

hawaii is all about the sunsets:
