Throwback Thursday: Sunset Memory from Maui  I was sitting with my 2 younger granddaughters and was scrolling through photos of our 2 most recent trips to Maui and stumbled across this photo. We were pretending be in Hawaii, including beach chairs, a "beach" by our small pool,and of course a picnic lunch. They even did some Hula dancing after I found a video to watch, then some Hula music for them to dance to. Back to Maui...Seems like the Maui sunsets were pretty awesome most every night we have been there, but some were better than others. And you really had to spend some time watching since they changed rapidly, in some cases becoming even more amazing as the sun went down and finally dropped below the nearby island of Lanai and the clouds. A great way to relax even further. And of c...

Wordless Wednesday: A Badly Needed Sunset  Our June Gloom weather here in Carlsbad, just a short distance from the beaches, has obliterated any sunsets for the last few days. Yep, it's common this time of year but a whole day of gray skies can get tiresome, day after day. Clearly I was in need of some sun, so I went looking in my camera file on my iphone.  This photo was taken the day after our anniversary celebration in Maui, at the beach in Ka'anapali, on July 29th last year.  It cheered me up! “Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under!” ― C.

Throwback ThursdayMaui Sunsets  I always enjoy taking time to appreciate our sunsets in Carlsbad. And of course I enjoy those relaxing few moments when traveling, too, perhaps even more so since I have that down-time. This was a particularly beautiful sunset at Ka'anapali Beach, north of Lahaina, where we stayed last October. I'm looking forward to another sunset or two (or more) there in the near future!

Throwback Thursday: Killer Sunset  There is something about sunsets that appeal to me no matter where I travel...and to many others, given the crowds that gathered on the beach to watch the sunset every night in Ka'anapali, Maui recently. As soon as the sun was getting close to hiding in the clouds and descending behind the nearby island of Lanai there was a flurry of activity as people headed to the beach or gathered by the pool, cameras ready for what surprises lay ahead. The other night was particularly spectacular, especially with this fascinating blue streak in the sky. A killer sunset indeed. And in my opinion the clouds add an extra punch to any sunset. But no green flash! May you continue to take time to appreciate sunrises and sunsets, wherever you may be. Mother Nature does so...

Throwback Thursday: Sailing in the Sunset  There is something magical about seeing, and more importantly taking time to appreciate, a beautiful sunset, no matter where you find it (sunrise, too, of course). We got to enjoy this one - 8 of them - several years ago on vacation while we fixing dinner at the resort where we were staying. It's time to go back!! Although those we have here in Carlsbad are just as nice!

Shark Pit Social Maui | West Maui Restaurant in Lahaina *To our knowledge the Shark Pit restaurant on Maui is not currently open. We have been going to Shark Pit since they were serving food out of a trailer. At that time they were ranked as one of the top food trucks in the nation! A couple years ago after all of their success they opened a brick and mortar restaurant in Lahaina right off of Front St. They serve local farm to fork food with a twist. Everything we have had is ono(delicious)! Although they are open until 10 PM they usually only have enough food for the evening so if they are busy they may start to run out of items later in the evening. We usually set a reservation for just after sunset. After we finish watching the sunset we head over for dinner which is usually between ...

Short movie at Pohaku Beach Park on Maui, aka S-turns  Just a short and sweet little movie to highlight another beautiful beach on Maui's west side.  There's off street parking for about a dozen cars, and some picnic tables in the shade.  What a great spot to do a little surfing, paddle boarding, or just get some sun.  I used the Quik app from GoPro to put this together using a couple of video clips and snapshots.  They make it very easy.You can find Pohaku Beach off the coastal Lower Honoapiilani Road in the Napili area. Pohaku Park from Georgie Hunter on Vimeo.Find homes for sale on West Maui Search Maui condos for sale by nameThanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate...

The views at Papalaua Wayside Park and beach, West MauiIt's just a small sandy beach with some unpaved places to pull over and park, but the views are phenomenal.  If you're driving around Maui seeing the sights, Papalaua Wayside Park is in between Maalaea and Olowalu, and makes a great place to stop and rest, to stretch your legs. Just on the west side of the "tunnel" as you drive between Kahului and Lahaina. No fancy improvements or landscaping here, just the natural wild beauty of the shoreline and the ocean. You'll find a portable potty and trash bin so you can take a break and refresh.  Jump into the shallow water and get cooled off in the small waves!Oceanfront homes and land for sale on Maui.Ocean views at Papalaua Wayside Park from Georgie Hunter on Vimeo.It's good to know that ...

Sunset skies in Olowalu, West Maui, Hawaiian IslandsThe Honoapiilani Highway meanders along the coast as you drive through Olowalu on Maui's west side.  Traffic can be slow since it's a narrow 2 lane road and the scenery is always beautiful.  No need to rush, you're on Maui time now.  Take it slow and enjoy the ride, and be thankful for another day.  Sunset ocean view from Olowalu MauiIf you lived here, you'd be home already.Find a home for sale in Lahaina and other parts of West Maui.A nice spot to pull over and camp on West MauiThanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers127 Hana Hwy. #G, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635

For those of you who are wishing, darn, I wish she'd get back to Sacramento real estate and stop blogging about the sun, beaches, wildlife, food and entertainment in Hawaii, today is not that day. But tomorrow will be. I am heading to the Maui airport this morning to catch a noon flight direct to Sacramento. I've been in Hawaii since December 1st. It's been a long winter wor-cation. Because I've done both. Work and vacation, although working for me is mostly very pleasurable, so it seems awful to call selling real estate "work." Especially when I'm gazing at the ocean.Further, our full moon early Friday created super high waves in Ka'anapali, crashing and thundering. Studying them, I put two and two together and discovered something new about waves. You can read more in my personal blog...

This bird is a type of partridge called a Gray Francolin. I noticed it because it was screaming bloody murder at the top of a fence post along the Ka'anapali Beach Walk trail that passes between the ocean and the Ka'anapali Golf Course. When I stopped to observe it, I noticed a group of Gray Francolins wandering about below the fence.As many times as I have visited Hawaii, I've never noticed this bird before. But it's sorta like when you spot a new make of automobile on the freeway or worse, you buy such a unique vehicle, and then it's ubiquitous. You can't get away from it. When I returned to my hotel, I found another on the bench and got better photos of that one.Along the walk, I visited the Sheraton Black Rock, the Ka'anapali Golf Course, some sort of water diversion with lava rocks...

My travel agent put together some sort of "island romance" package for my vacation from my vacation in Hawaii. It was meant for 2 people because the travel company cannot seem to fathom that one person might stay at the hotel. I mean, who in her right mind goes to Maui for several weeks by herself? Only a crazy person would do that, right?Which meant that all the coupons for extra goodies were for two people. Did I get two of each of those things, though? No, I didn't even get two massages. That just didn't seem financially correct. However, the guys on the Maui cruise did offer me two prime rib dinners. What do I look like? A horse?You can read more and see the tons of photos I shot in my personal blog today at this link: Maui Princess Sunset Dinner Cruise from Lahaina Entertains.
