We’re still in Lahaina and enjoying it very much. We would have probably left by now, but small craft warnings, high winds and seas are posted for the channel between Maui and our next island. So we’ve decided to wait it out until the trades moderate – we’re hoping for it to happen by next week.
In the meantime, we continue to explore this part of Maui via the bus, visit historical sites, enjoy the perfect climate, water, beautiful sunsets and rainbows. We’ve checked out books from the local library and it’s nice to have time to read. We get excercise from rowing a 1/2 mile to the small boat harbor, which can be a good workout when the current is against us.
This spot has excellent beginner surf and the captain is working up some nerve to rent a board and see if he can still remember how to ride a wave. Stay tuned; it could be an adventure.
Happy birthday Tameron – love Dad
