Two of these things I like. They don't include hops, grains and yeast.
This post is for Saturday August 12 and Sunday August 13,2017
Saturday morning we loaded I to Stinky (our van) and went to the beach around the Fairmont in Wailea - I think it was Polo Beach. The waves were awesome for boogie boarding. We had so much fun! A couple flip outs and a few big waves required some quick bathing suit readjustments before standing up. No need to expose too much to the world. We are not at Little Beach!
After our beach morning we headed over to Maui Brewing Co. in Kehei for a tour. The tour was good. The company was started by a married couple in 2004 originally in Hana and is growing. They try to source as much as they can locally and one of their values is about having fun and enjoying life.
After the tour we tasted their top four beers. I don't drink beer and don't particularly like it. Unless I'm in China but that's another story. We also got a token to trade in for a pint of any beer we wanted. I think they had about 30 types on tap. Aunty Mary Lou and I chose rootbeer. They make their own rootbeer and it is really good! Much better than beer in my opinion.
t is interesting to note that you can buy the Maui Brewery beer cheaper at Costco than you can at the brewery. How does Costco do it?
We spent some time at the pool before dinner and then sunset. We ended the evening by walking down the street with the kids for ice cream.
Sunday August 13, 2017
Aunty Mary Lou, Uncle Rick, James and I decided to drive out to La Perouse Bay to see the lava fields. The road gets a bit narrow past Makena but it is worth the drive!
The lava fields are from the last lava flow on the island in the 1700's. All the black lava rock is pretty amazing and the waves crashing in against the rock are mesmerizing. I could have watched them all day. Powerful and beautiful. Uncle Rick said watching the waves was better than the helicopter ride. Hmmm...I still put the helicopter above the waves by at least a smidge.
Sunday was a relaxing day. We worked on our journals, shopped and then played cards. Ben made a come back from behind in the card game and ended up winning because mom decided the lines were to small to keep score...or something like that. Her lambsy playing friends would not be impressed.
We went to Happy Hour at the Shops in Wailea followed by more photos of the sunset. We even did some hula to the ukulele at sunset. Aunty Mary Lou has the video proof.
After sunset we went to the Thai food truck - Aloha Thai Fusion. Everything was delicious!
And those were our days. Pretty perfect...except for the beer.
