After the half marathon, we literally returned home to fly out the next morning to Maui.
From home it’s a one hour flight to Seattle, an hour lay over, and an additional 6 hour flight. But with the lay over, it was only 11am when we arrived. Got our car and headed to the hotel.
After checking into the resort we headed to lunch. After asking some locals about dinner decided on a restraunt called MALA, where the food was incredible, the staff amazing, and right off the shore we saw our first six, HUGE, sea turtles.
Let me tell you, this place is every bit the hype you hear. It’s stunning. It’s relaxing. It’s paradise.
(This is the closest we got to swimming with sharks.) That afternoon we spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out by the pool/ocean…
Wednesday morning Bill was dying… Like super, super cannot get outif bed, or walk, or eat without getting violently sick… So while he slept it off, I spent the morning reading a great book in a cabana, eating a terrific breakfast, drinking coffee and watching the ocean.
When Bill got to feeling a little better and could hold down some food, we headed out to the Whalers Village.
Then we walked the beach.
The following morning we headed out to go snorkeling.
The second stop was over a coral garden with turtles. Again, it was just amazing to see. The fish was to right by you, not alarmed at all. Incredible. I would do this again, a million times over, Bill probably would prefer to never wear a snorkeling mask again.
