Why do I love Maui?!!  That's simple... The photos below should give you a good idea!  This is one of my favorite whale watching spots.  The hammock in the middle is there for anyone to use.  It is a great way to relax in the warm tropical sunshine.

When you visit the islands, it is important to watch out for falling coconuts!

The photo below was taken over the sugar cane fields.

This is the remodeled pool at Kaanapali Alii where we have a condo.

It doesn't matter what beach you are at, you see a lot of whales during this time of year.

I took these photos from the shoreline.  I am surprised at how close to the shore they come.

We plan to go on a whale watching trip next week.

They put on quite a show for the people on the shore.

Palm trees, Palm trees everywhere!  The little guy below was mesmerized by the whales and the ocean.

Even the sunsets are more beautiful here!

Every day I see so many things around me that just show the beauty of our world and I love each one of them.  As the saying goes... "Maui No Ka Oi"  translated = Maui is the best! I hope you all have a great weekend!

I LOVE Maui!!

I went in December and now I want to live there!

The shot with the Palm trees looks like the small beach in front of Mama's Fish house.

Hi Dawn - I like the shot of the coconut tree, it's a perpective we don't often see. And you're right about the sunsets, absolutely beautiful!

Hi Ralph,

You have Maui fever too!!  It's not hard to love it here.  I know the beach you are talking about.  It is in Paia.  The name of the beach is Jaws.  It is my favorite surfing hole.  I know Mama's Fish House well.  Great little spot for dinner.  This photo is behind the resturant...

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

HI Dawn,

I have not been to Hawaii - but one of these days I will go there.  It does look so beautiful. 

I have been all over Europe and loved it there. 

Have a great day.

Hello Karin,

I do hope that you can make it over here someday.  It is quite a treat!  I have not been to Europe.  My family went one year when I was in college and I couldn't get the time off from work.  Now I think I should have quit and gone with them, as I don't know that I will ever make it over there now.  I am sure it was a great time.  I would love to see some photos if you have any.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Dawn, it brings back memories of my visit to Maui. One thing that surprised me was that there were no screens on the windows.  With all the bugs we have in FL, I found that of interest.  BTW, nice photos!

Hi Marlene,

I am happy that it made you reminisce.  You are right... and there are a ton of bugs here.  All of our properties here have screens on the windows.  I just wish I could find a fool proof way to keep out the scorpions and centipedes!  Thanks, I am having fun taking them all.  Hope you have a great Sunday!

Hi Georgie,

Thanks.  I have seen more rainbows here this time than I have in the last 5 years of coming over here.  I am looking forward to getting together.  We are on our way out right now and will be back later tonight.  How does your week next week look?  I will have some free time Monday or Tuesday.  Let me know and we will set something up.  Hope you have a great day and enjoy your weekend!
