ok, today was realxing at the beach day. that was the goal. we went to the numero uno big beach (literally). makena big beach state park. a nice wide beach that is supposedly the kingly beach beach to visit on maui.
I was concerned the crowds would be huge. i had read tons of people go there. the parking lot was quite full with a long walk ahead. but i gave it a go and drove to the front turnaround and it was like we received a special cozmic perk. a patking spot opened a mere 12 spaces away from the entrance.
we hit the beach with a borrowed beach umbrella and towels from the haiku plantation inn and were ready for an amazing day.
then things went a little sideways. this beach that was supposed to be the best or one of the best started to get angry. we were in the surf fighting big waves and undercurrents from both the left and right. it was tiresome abd worrisome. i'd have to say we just picked the wrong day.
i was having trouble and cheryl was thrown all around so we threw in the towel and left for a more relaxed ecperience beach. As we were leaving i looked back and literally two dozen others decided to leave as well. i don't know if the lifeguard said something or conditions literally changed when we showed up. but it was a mass exodus...
