We had our tickets, and nothing was going to stop us.
From the hot sultry sun, to the warmest ocean waters, breathtaking sunsets, and thee most exotic flowers, It was just all that and more. We had a few tropical rains too .. but nothing like we are accustomed to in Oregon. The tropical rains lasted thirty minutes at the most, and it was a light rain with warm drops. It was like standing in a very light trickling shower. This is a rain, I could learn to love.
The flowers are just so beautiful, and they are all over the place.
These trees have the most beautiful white flowers. The grass adorns these as they fall off the tree, and it just blissful.
We stayed in the tiny seaside town of Lahaina, where one side of the main road is nothing but breathtaking blue waters and the other side is beautiful mountains. And thrown in is a generous helping of palm trees. From what I read in those travel books, this was once the capital of the Hawaii kingdom and where Royalty once lived, and I can see why.
I love Bonsai trees .. and having them line the road is just mystical to me.
The water was so clear and oh so warm. Just as warm as a bubble bath. I would just sit on this shoreline for long periods of time,and stare out at the ocean. It was just so nice to sit and take it all in, and just be. Paradise for sure.
We opted to stay in a condo instead of the luxurious resorts you can find on the island. The location could not be beat, it was a short 20 steps or less from our room to the water. We had Betty’s next door, located in the historic district, and the view could just not get any better. Our studio sized condo was not fancy, but simple and had everything we needed. We had a small little kitchen so we could eat breakfast & lunch in. We were happy to stumble upon a Krispy Kreme, (which we are not lucky enough to have here) so we got a few for breakfasts and made sandwiches for lunch.
