and when they blew past,
We had breakfast company at the Gazabo. Actually this birdie has lots and lots of friends but she was the only one who held still long enough for me to snap a picture of while we waited for our macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup to arrive.
We dared the Road to Hana.
Don't be fooled by J's smile, he is white knuckling it all the way. The speedy locals and the one lane bridges made for quite the adventure.Hana itself was pretty whaa waa wa. (Insert Charlie Brown's teacher's voice). I wouldn't go to Maui as a tourist to stay in Hana. But along the way, we saw some pretty amazing sites.
Like jungles straight out of the old Vietnam movies.
Windy paths to awe inspiring look outs.
The smell of guava was so thick, I spent many minutes just breathing in the sweet goodness. We stopped at the Garden of Eden along the way to Hana and it was by far my most favorite stop. In fact, if we had known, we could have called it quits right then and there and saved ourselves hours on the narrow highway to nowhere-ville.
On our trek to see the Nakalele Blowhole, we encountered thousands of these stacked rocks. I was immediately reminded of the Blair Witch movie. I swear the movie makers had taken a recent trip to the blowhole themselves and discovered this eerie phenomenon themselves.
This was also found along the way.
The mist from the ocean's spray would leave your lips tasting salty.
We can not wait to go back someday.
