Maui Day One

Our first full day in Maui was an adventure. I meant to document what we did every day because I knew I wouldn't remember exactly what happened on what day. Not that you will know any different, but I am trying my best. We did, however, manage to take 800 photos. That's 100 a day.
I started the day with Hawaian sweet bread coconut french toast, and Mark had a Spam omelette. No, not really. Then we went to these botanical gardens near the hotel, but this place looked in need of some funding. But I did manage to get this shot of the roots of a beautiful tree.




Then we hit the road to go see the wild coastline. On the way, we passed this old Buddhist cemetery. It looked ancient, but folks were still putting fresh flowers by the stones.

I am so lucky that I have a husband who loves this stuff as much as I do. We took a million photos and continued on our way.


Hmmm... Shouldn't those mountains be on our left?



Oops. Well finally found the right road and found the ocean cliffs.


When it turned into a one lane road with no guardrails, the grand fetus protective fear made us turn back and seek a safe dinner closer to sea level. Decided to try this Korean/Japanese place that wasn't quite Japanese enough. Couldn't eat my rubbery transparent noodles, so had ice cream for dinner instead.

It was the perfect day.

Ahhh! It looks so beautiful! I can feel the fresh air and ocean breeze. Damn!

I love the Buddhist cemetary photo. I am totally an old cemetary explorer!

I can't wait to see more.
