01/12/07: A Room with a View

Hawaii Update #2


Our first two nights in Maui were spent at Mana Kai in Kihei in what is called South Beach, which actually faces west. Go figure. We spent those first two days lounging on the beach and swimming in clear, blue water. We kept the windows open and fell asleep to the sound of the surf – completely relaxing.

From our window we could see the Molokini Crater, where we would snorkel in a few days & barely visible in this photo, and the uninhabited island, Kaho’olawe, the large island on the horizon. The small stretch of beach in front of our condo is called Keawakapu Beach, which is made of powder-soft orange sand and which was eroded by about 2.5 feet thanks to a small tsunami during our second night there. Strange stuff.
