Maui 2015: Days 6 & 7

Sunday we planned on going to Kahalui to greet Richard and Judy but their flight was delayed and then delayed again so in the end it was so late we agreed to just meet up for breakfast at Duke’s.

On our daily walk I saw a beautiful red hibiscus and took a photo for red-is-my-favorite-color-although-I-love-all-colors-except-for-pink-and-purple Gus. John and his son continue to make good progress replacing crumbling steps. We hung around the lanai and beach today, reading. I finished the book on the aircraft carrier and started another on a pilot for Marine One, the President’s helicopter. We did venture out to the Fish Market to get mahi for fish tacos. There’s a Hawaiian fish poster there and I was surprised how many we have had.

Monday we went over to greet Richard and Judy at their place just a mile or so south of us at the Westin. This leg of their stay they have an ocean front room with a gorgeous view. After breakfast, we headed to Kihei’s bird sanctuary boardwalk. It’s taken years to build so it was great to finally be able to take the walk. We had lunch at Coconut’s Fish Café, a place Karen found in Top Maui Restaurants. Guess what? I had the mahi. J

In the afternoon, we headed off in our own directions until it was time to gather at our condo for our traditional pre-sunset drinks, sunset watching, conch blowing, and dinner.
