we had planned on being in Maui for four, but as flights on saturday began to book up, it was looking like we wouldn't get out of Maui until Tuesday...i know, what's the problem?! It sucks having grown up responsibilities sometimes. We decided it was safer to come back home, but that's not to say it wasn't terribly sad...like tears welling up in your eyes sad.
but we will be back Maui, don't you worry.
We went to Whaler's village our first day, which has an amazing snorkeling spot. Snorkeling with me is quite the ordeal. I love it, but I have to admit that it freaks me out. I actually scream everytime I see a fish...it's true.
We also saw a HUGE sea turtle! We we just swimming, and this family comes up to me saying that there's a turtle right under me. I start screaming and freaking out! Then the Mom proceeded to pinch my legs and telling it was the turtle. It was hilarious, but I was horrified!
Caleb ran and got our masks so we could see him. I did warm up to him once I realized he did not really even notice me, or care that I was there. He was so cute!!
We followed this little bird down the sidewalk. He was so funny. He would walk, look in the bushes, then walk, look in the bushes. We saw him grab about three lizards and eat them right up. Pretty quick little guy!
We went back to one of our favorite places. Cheeseburger in Paradise! I got my usual...cheeseburger with pineapple and avocado, and Caleb did as well. So delicous!
The burgers are gigantic! Just to give you an attractive reference here is me trying to fit it in my mouth.
Our second day we rented boogie boards for the day, and the shop owner directed us to a fun boogie boarding beach. It was my first time ever doing it, and it was so much fun!
Would it seem weird if I said it is difficult to find good Hawaian BBQ in Hawaii? We asked a shop owner in the town we were staying, and he promptly directed us to a restaraunt like two steps away. First he said he didn't eat out much so he didn't know, and then told us to go "right there, it's good." Ummm...we didn't fall for it.
