Conch shell blowing at sunset in Kihei Maui - short video

Kihei Maui - Every day at sunset the tourists gather on the rooftop of the oceanfront Menehune Shores condo building to watch the sun sink into the sea, and experience the ceremony of blowing the conch shell!

So we played tourist the other day and went along with our Canadian visitors to see for ourselves.  We walked across South Kihei Road to the endless beach, where others were getting ready to enjoy the sunset.  Sure enough, just before the sun hits the water we could hear the conch shells "tuning up".

Watch this short video and you can hear more than one conch shell blasting out at the end of the day!

I've been to Maui twice. Now, seeing this video makes me want to return. The sounds of the horns are very relaxing to me.

Aloha Georgie - sometimes it can be refreshing to "play" tourist on your home turf even if it's just a reminder that there's no place like home.

Maui is such an amazing place, the beauty abounds!  I have not been there since I was a kid and I need to make a point to get there again.

Aloha Georgie - your post inspired me to tell others the importance of "showing off" our own areas.  So much can be learned when you share the sights, the sounds and the scenes that are abundant.  Sometimes some not-so-obvious ones too.  Thanks for the inspiration.  

Even though I had previously written a post for the February ActiveRain challenge by Richie Alan Naggar, your words made a second post https://activerain.com/blogsview/5466632/to-trip-the-light-fantastic----- possible.

How nice of Michael Jacobs to boast your post and it is definitely worth boasting about.  I really enjoyed this post the first go around and it doesn't disappoint the second go around either!

Barbara Todaro Did you like the dragon fruit?  It's pretty unusual looking isn't it?

Oh, Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - As soon as I read Michael Jacobs' blog post referencing you playing tourist in Maui, I got here as soon as I can! I read your post; then played the video three times. The first time, I watched with my eyes and listened to the waves roll in and out with the conch shells blasting out at the end. It is just before midnight where I live. The first time I watched your video, I sat behind my computer. The second time, I got up and walked around while listening to the sounds of Maui and the beach. The third time, I shut off all the lights and walked around imagining myself walking barefoot on the beach. It was such a beautiful experience, one in which I never had before. Thank you, so much for being so thoughtful to put this video together and share it with us on ActiveRain. You truly are a  blessing to me.
