Day 2

On Day 2 of our Maui trip we went Whale Watching, which was an amazing experience!  February is peak whale watching month in Hawaii and this year it was a very active season for the whales!

 After whale watching we decided to take a drive to West Maui’s rugged North Shore.  My camera battery was almost dead due to all the pictures I took while whale watching!  I had to take pictures sparingly. Being a pictureholic – that is a tough thing to ask!! 

Day 3

Our third day in Maui, we decided to check out Maui’s high country or up country, Mama’s Fish House, and the road to Hana. 

Maui’s high country is so pastural and lush filled with horse properties and fields and fields of sugar cane.

There is an adorable  little town called Makawao in up country that we stopped at to do some site seeing.  We enjoyed a glass blowing presentation and walking through some art galleries as well.

 

Time for some lunch!  We hit the road and made our way to Mama’s Fish House…

Mama’s Fish House – EXPENSIVE but worth it!  The place is amazing –  a scene from an old Polynesian movie!  Read about it here!

After our wonderful lunch at Mama’s, we headed on the scenic tour of Maui’s road to Hana.  We only went as far as our friend’s kids could handle before getting car sick!  The vistas on the road to Hana are beautiful.  The Hawaiian islands are experiencing a bit of a drought this season so there were less waterfalls and the creeks were running low.  There are several places on the road to Hana that you can stop and hike.  A worthwhile drive no matter how far along the curvy, hairpin, rough road you go!

 

 Churches

 

I really enjoy finding fabulous church buildings when traveling and Maui did not disappoint!  We saw these two churches in Paia on our way to  lunch and decided that we had to go back after the Hana  drive to get some close up shots! 

 Loved them both!!!  The one above is Makawao Union Church and it was built in 1916. The one below is the Holy Rosary Parish and was founded in 1915.

 

Sunset

 

The one thing you can always count on in Maui is a picture perfect sunset to end your day and the sunset on the end of Day 3 was gorgeous!

Aloha for now…

Whale Watching in Maui…

If you are planning a trip to Hawaii, I would highly recommend the middle of February.  February is the peak whale watching month and boy were the whales active!  You could sit and watch them for hours – a highlight of our trip!

Sunday – Glory, Glory Lord   1 comment

 

Glory, glory Lord
We give You glory, Lord
Glory, glory Lord
You are the Mighty God

You who go down to the sea,
You who live in the islands
If you live in the city,
 Lift your voices sing out!

Sing to the Lord a new song
Sing His praise to the ends of the earth
Let every nation tell it, declare it
Till everyone has heard

Lyrics by – Bob Fitts
