Recently Trish and I went to Maui, Hawaii for a friends wedding. It was a magical trip. The trade winds to me induce the experience of freedom and fullness. We had some amazing food, and got really tan! Trish and I stayed at the Aston Maui Lu in Kihei the first night, and spent the rest of our time in Lahiana at a residential home. Gotta say it was a nice break to get out of the tourist routine.
Also… It just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t mention the most amazing sushi dinner ever, which we had at sansei sushi bar just outside of Lahaina.
See the pictures below we took on the road to Hana, Trish was really looking forward to seeing the seven sacred pools…
We were hesitant to take the unpaved route back to civilization and risk smashing the rental to take a different route back, but decided to do it anyway… I must say the gamble paid off, it was a very nice trip back and I think much quicker.
Here are some pictures of our recent trip to Hawaii:
Jimena and Mark’s Wedding was on White Rock Beach
Our first stop on the Road to Hana (FRESH FRUIT!) If I remember correctly this stand is just outside of Pa’ia Town.
Painted eucalyptus trees (the most colorful tree on earth). These trees are located just near mile marker six. Trish and I stopped and crossed the road, which ended up being a dangerous move just to get a closer look at these beautiful trees.
Amazing plant life -took this on a very cool hike we went on
Alien Plant (like rubber)
Road to Hana right above the Keanae Peninsula
The very unique, Maui black sand beach is said to be one of the most beautiful things to see on Maui. Honokalani beach at Wainapanapa State Park was created by lava flow. This lava entered the ocean when it was still hot and quickly solidified, then shattered into small pieces. Thus, the black charred shores of Honokalani.
FYI, the normal brown or white sandy beaches that we’re use to comes from the breakdown of coral and sea shells.
Seven Sacred Pools at Haleakala National Park – This sequence of waterfalls makes their way through the O’heo Gulch and flows into the ocean nearby. The seven sacred pools were actually flowing to hard to go swimming on this day because of some rain, however it would be nice to enjoy the swimming here.
This is where the pools meet the ocean
The roots of this tree were amazing still in Haleakala National Park
