Late Post: La Perouse Bay!
Today, we walked along Ahihi-Kinau Bay and had lunch at La Perouse Bay. Walking along Ahihi-Kinau Bay we were able to see a variety of fish up close! The black lava rocks against the crystal blue water looked so beautiful! After Ahihi-Kinau Bay, we had lunch near the parking lot at La Perouse Bay. We ate our Subway sandwiches right on the rocky beach.
We intended to hike the La Perouse Trail, but later found out that the trail can no longer be accessed through Ahihi-Kinau Bay. Although, we didn’t get to hike the trail it was still a a great day filled with incredible views of Maui.
Just some random photos I found on my camera.
Late Post: “The Cross” hike. The cross was put up by St. Anthony’s school and maintained by the students. If you are looking for a quick workout, this hike will definitely test your endurance due to its steep elevation. Most of us didn’t realize the trail was going to be straight up; I thought the trail was going to “zig zag” up the mountain. The footpath is clearly not maintained so proper footwear is a must! The cross is located at the end of the hike. Views of Wailuku and Kahului were difficult to see at the top. Although the hike wasn’t as scenic, it was nice to get a workout done early in the day. After the hike, we went to the bars and watched the Cougs win! Go Cougs!
US at Ali’i Kula Lavender Gardens.
Ali’i Kula Lavender Gardens…continued.
Visited Ali’i Kula Lavender Gardens today! The weather up there was PERFECT.
On August 22, I turned 24. Almost a quarter of a century years old. Life is going by past and I am happy with everything I accomplished so far. Sophie also turned 10 months!
On my birthday, I woke up with balloons all over the floor and a birthday present from Toni in the middle of the room. He got me a nice bag and two tickets to a Les Miserables Musical! We went to the musical the next night and it was amazing :) I also celebrated my birthday with Toni’s family over dinner at Zippy’s. I am not much of a party person when it comes to my birthday - so it was nice to have a laid back birthday. Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes!! Thank you to my family for the presents! Love you all! I am truly blessed :)
AUGUST: Cousin Jack and his family spent a week on Maui for their summer vacation. I was so happy to spend time with them and to have family around :) We had dinner at Cafe O’lei in Kihei - food was amazing! We spent the next day at Genki’s Sushi for lunch, took the kids to Fun Factory, walked around Queen Kaahumanu Mall, and searched for a park for the kids to play around. We weren’t very successful in finding a park so we took them to an elementary school. Overall, it was very nice to spend time with them :)
Early August, I went with Toni to Maui’s first Sneaker Event. All I can say is that sneakers are freakin expensive, haha. Anyways, Toni got Free Runs that have glow in the dark specks on the sole - they photograph nicely in the dark…check out his FB.
This month, we also started taking Chico and Shyla to the dog park every so often. Shyla loves riding on the truck. She doesn’t do so well with others dogs and barks a lot. Chico walks around the perimeter of the dog park and pees - that’s basically all he does.
