Total lack of blog inspiration this week……. so I am posting something I wrote in April five years ago. This was a wonderful trip with our high school senior girls. I am thinking of all of those high school and college seniors who have had their last year so horribly disrupted by this virus ~ our hearts go out to you.
More specifically, the Makena Beach and Golf Resort in South Maui.
Grace and I reaped the benefits of highly organized moms on this trip. I usually drift towards the beach chair and a paperback and would never have seen all of the incredible things if they hadn’t planned them.
A small group went to watch the sunrise at the Haleakala Crater the first morning.
A Luau is a must if you are in Hawaii and the Old Lahaina Luau is fabulous.
The Humpback whales were in season while we were in Maui and we hit the high seas with Captain Joel of Ultimate Whale Watch to see them.
We sang ABBA on the boat (for some strange reason) and the babies kept breaching to check us out. We were not complaining!
We pulled over at Twin Falls and walked the mile in to find our waterfall. It did not disappoint!
The ten of us ventured out, Starbucks in hand, one morning for a 7 am guided kayak and snorkeling tour.
