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…

Psalm 113   2 comments

 Psalm 113

1 Praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD, you his servants;
praise the name of the LORD.

2 Let the name of the LORD be praised,
both now and forevermore.

3 From the rising of the sun to the place
where it sets, the name of the LORD
is to be praised.

4 The LORD is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.

5 Who is like the LORD our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,

6 who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?

The pictures in the collage were taken this last week.  It was a week filled with beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  This Psalm truly expresses how I feel when I see the wonderful ways God reminds us to PRAISE HIM!

Psalter – God’s Glory in His Works   6 comments

1. Lord, our Lord, Thy glorious Name
All Thy wondrous works proclaim;
In the heavens with radiant signs
Evermore Thy glory shines.
Infant lips Thou dost ordain
Wrath and vengeance to restrain,
Weakest means fulfill Thy will,
Mighty enemies to still. 
 

2. Moon and stars in shining height
Nightly tell their Maker’s might;
When Thy wondrous heavens I scan,
Then I know how weak is man.
What is man that he should be
Loved and visited by Thee,
Raised to an exalted height,
Crowned with honor in Thy sight? 

3. With dominion crowned he stands
O’er the creatures of Thy hands;
All to him subjection yield
In the sea and air and field.
Lord, our Lord, Thy glorious Name
All thy wondrous works proclaim,
Thine the Name of matchless worth,
Excellent in all the earth.
