Default Maui 2017

We spent a week on Maui a couple weeks ago. Lots of pretty stuff there. Here's some pics....

Beach at Fairmont Kea Lani resort where we stayed.


Sea Turtles and surf near Mama's Fish House




View from the table at Mama's (great food, by the way)



The Road to Hana....










Black Sand Beach






More Road to Hana....


Seven Pools off Road to Hana





View from near the church where Charles Lindburgh is buried


grave...


The road past Hana on south side of island. They have lots of axis deer there, but we didn't see any. Saw several wild goats.


Secret Beach



The volcano on the main part of Maui is called Haleakala. The summit is a little over 10,000' above sea level. This is the crater. We stayed to see the sun set above the clouds.












Then we stayed a while longer to see the stars. It's supposedly the 4th best spot on the planet to view stars. The Haleakala Observatory is up there.




After an hour's drive down off the mountain after dark back to the hotel, we got up at 3:30am the next morning to go fishing out of Lahaina.



We didn't know that it's bad luck to have bananas on board. M.C. packed some in our snack bag. Fishing was slow at first.




After I offered the captain a banana, we learned about the bad luck deal. He was laughing his head off. He said he didn't believe in that stuff, but his deck hand did. While we were laughing about it, M.C. went down below and got the bananas and threw them overboard. About 5 minutes later we started catching fish.

Yep. And a nipple ring and an ear ring. He lives in a hammock on the dock. He retired early. It doesn't cost much to retire if you live in a hammock, I guess.

Dang, he's just asking for someone to rip one back and get a hook caught in there! Looks like he knows what he's doing though!

He's been fishing for a long time. He was good. A little different, but he was good. He was polite and friendly as well.

Looks almost identical to our trip to Maui in 2015! Fairmont was an amazing place to stay.

Yep, keep those nanners off the boat if you want to catch fish.

Gorgeous pictures, Shane! I bet you're glad your clients don't want to retire in a hammock!
