so i'm sitting in a very quiet haiku plantation inn drinking a coors light while cheryl sips some tea. it's been another full day of fun with a great amount of time at the beach and were winding down.
relaxing and looking back getting ready to post plenty more pictures and wrap up the days events on the blog it hits hard that this is our last day here doing stuff.
sacramento to maui will be reversed tomorrow and there will be a full day of traveling to get back to real life things.
we had so much fun. It' a big world and we had an awesome slice of the islands. we have to start worrying about real things instead of what beach to go to and if the waves are too big. i have to ponder about no more island breakfasts of pineapple, passion fruit, and papaya. i've grown very fond of them and our new maui rituals. Soon they will be memories kept alive and relived on this website and blog.
sure u can get pineapple from the grocery store, macadmia nuts from world market but they are hollow without the actual experiences we have lived here in maui the last few days.
we will miss the small winding roads with the lush green on the side. the chickens ruling both sides of the streets (but not the alpha male rooster in the yard here way to damn early in the am). we'll miss the ocean as we are returning to land locked sacramento, and even miss this rustic slice of island life of the plantation inn in haiku that we have stayed at. A real retro estate with a long maui history.
we hope you can share in these experiences someday. The sights, the sounds, the smells. it's very foreign yet it's still the u.s.. we hope you make it here yourself one day and understand how the maui vibe and feel grows into you and eveything else fades away.
we're especially going to miss ululani's shave ice; a special cup of heaven you can only find on maui.
