I was up really early and decided to go out for a walk. There are a lot of people up early in Maui. Must be the squawking birds.
We were at the beach by 8.30 am this morning and put in a solid four hours of boogie boarding and snorkelling. While out snorkelling we saw a couple turtles. One was huge and majestic. S/he floated through the water around us and then came back to our beach area as if to say goodbye. James thinks it was because he bonded with the turtle. Who knows.
Kate built a fortified sand fortress. We all felt safe by the added protection of the sticks. We enjoyed sunning ourselves and cooling off in the water.
We did some shopping and thought we would check out the 5 Palms for happy hour as many people suggested. We took pictures of the views but didn't stay.
We headed over to the Shops at Wailea to pick up some shirts that were to be in stock today at Malibu...and went to happy hour at Longhi's.
We are trying to use up our food so we BBQ'ed and then had ice cream birthday cake for Ben and Kate. Ben's birthday is Aug. 29 (how can he possibly be 12 already?!!) and Kate's birthday is September 25. She'll be 8.
Now we have the sad chore of packing up. We don't leave until late tomorrow evening but we need to be out of the condo by 11 am. Luckily the owners of the condo Aunty Mary Lou rented are giving her the day at no charge so we will all go over there.
We have a full day left of Maui sunshine and we will be sure to seize it!
