Trip 3 – April ’08

Big Beach - Makena State Park
Whale Tail
Grumpy Honu
West Maui View
BJ's Chicago Pizzeria on Front Street
Sunset Cruise

By this point, we’re pretty much regulars on the Valley Isle, and even the housekeeping staff at the Sheraton recognize us from last year. Our third trip was magical for many reasons, including our first encounters with the whales here in Maui, celebrating my birthday here on the island, and being able to bring my mom with us on her first visit to Hawaii, and her first two week vacation, well, ever.

Sights and Tours

With my mom as our guest this trip, we took the opportunity to show here around all of our familiar stomping grounds. While we didn't venture off to too many new places, it was really fun playing tour guide.

Beaches

We've always enjoyed scoping out new beaches every trip to Maui, but this trip was the start of a new tradition for us, Beach Hopping. It entailed an entire day of beach fun, visiting 3 new spots all on the same day.

Restaurants

While we stuck to some of the same sights and tours as we had on passed trips, we made it out to a few restaurants from some ono meals.

Shopping

Shopping, of course, was part of the plans this trip. We were pretty proud of all the souvenirs we brought back this trip, as were the friends and family that received them.
