Maui Vacation


Back from a week in Maui, HI. It was paradise! The weather was sunny and in the high 70's-80's, and the water was warm too. Spent the week swimming in the ocean, snorkeling, laying by the beach/pool, and exploring the coast. We had a blast! Drove the road to Hana, it was gorgeous and boasts 600+ turns. Unfortunately, I got a little carsick. I was revived after plunging into a gorgeous and cold waterfall pool. It was one of the most memorable parts of the vacation because I've always wanted to swim in a lush paradise and sit under a waterfall. Snorkeling was amazing too. I had never snorkeled in the ocean before. There were tons of colorful fish all over the place. We even swam with a sea turtle for a bit before it took off. I was always a little bit scared snorkeling fearful of what scary fish (or shark!) we might come upon. Our hotel room was beautiful and even had a view of the beach. The pools were amazing, totally relaxing. Everyone kept assuming we were on a honeymoon and called me Mrs. Wallace over and over. Oh man! I can't wait to go back to Hawaii.

Welcome back! Looks like you had a fantastic time in Maui. I bet that road would have been fun to bike as well.
