Maui 2015: Days 15, 16 and 17
The last time they were here, Cal and Susan snorkeled at Kapalua Beach, just north of us. So the two of them and Amber and I headed over there early-ish (to avoid crowds) one morning and had a great time. There is a sandy part of the beach that makes it easy to go in and come out. (It’s also sheltered by a coral reef, so no large waves will wash your glasses away, Karen. Lots of colorful fish, of course, and one I’ve never seen before: it was round with a blunt noise like a mahi-mahi, about four inches long and silver colored with a bright blue rim around its edge. Everyone but me 😦 saw a turtle in the water, even though Amber did try to point it out to me.
Lunches these past few days have been at Hula Grill and Star Noodle. Dinners are cooked by Susan, Cal and Karen at Rich and Judy’s Westin condo. Needless to say, we have been eating very well. Tonight Karen’s making a pork tenderloin dish, for which she needs a mallet to flatten the meat. But since our condo doesn’t have one, she thought to ask John if she could borrow his hammer, which of course he was happy to loan her. Once she started in on her meat, she said it worked better than her made-for-the-task meat mallet at home.
It was whale soup out there on our whale watch today. I’ve added Richard’s map of our boat route. First whale watching trip for both Amber and Alex!
