Maui . . .
Our last full day here.
[Yes, chickens. Wild chickens. Gorgeous chickens. They’re everywhere . . . here on the way into Iao State Park.]
[And it was raining again . . . what a surprise! But in this instance, it worked. This seems to be a place best seen in the rain. Reminded me of the landscapes in Avatar.]
[The main theme here seems to be – “Danger.” Good thing it rained so hard we didn’t venture far. I took this video and then we headed back “to town” to see if there would be a change in the weather.]
[In our hour or so drive around the vicinity, we stopped in at a McDonald’s and then this was the only picture we took (at a small public golf course).]
[We went back to the park though the weather was still foreboding. But the rain held off long enough for us to hike up to the overlook.]
[Driving out, with the Super at the wheel, she stopped at these poinsettias and said, “Take a picture,” then drove forward 5 more feet and said, “Take a picture” . . . her wish was my command.]
[This is looking out from our hallway window, right outside our room, of the hotel’s patio area, including an outdoor restaurant, a bar, and a swimming pool just off to the right. The building in the background is also part of the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel, an old original along this strip.]
[And our beach . . . ]
[OMG, more rainbows! They’re everywhere! But what makes them unique, at least to me, sometimes you can see where they hit the ground. I’d never seen that before?]
[The Black Cliff at the north end of our beach. That girl stood hanging over that edge for several minutes at a time, but she never did jump (of course, I could never even stood at the edge) . . . ]
[But a guy did dive in, with a back flip no less.]
[Our last sunset over Lana’i.]
[Sweet little buttercup, shy little buttercup . . . ]
[Dinner and show outside, at our own hotel, hadn’t done that all week! We bid aloha as the next day we would be off to the Big Island.]
