So… aside from getting really sick on this helicopter ride… it really was a neat little adventure!

Copter

Haleakala (dormant volcano)… We hiked up this volcano… 10,023 feet.. well… hiked in the car… ha… You literally drive through the clouds… to get to the top… and then you're standing above the clouds…(as you can see how far above those clouds we were) it was pretty surreal! Most people do this for sunrise… ha..that was a little early for me! So I don't have a sunrise picture for you…BUT I DO have a sunset picture for you from yesterday! And it was AMAZING to say the very least!

HALEAKALA

While we were watching the sunset…we saw 3 whales jumping repeatedly in and out of the water! They just looked like they were having a ton of fun! I caught 2 of them jumping… like they were doing backflips! I guess we were about a half mile from the whales…so its not the best picture… but it will give you an idea! (The island of Molakai is what you see in the background).

And this is the sunset! Beautiful! Yeah?!

  • Paula Gamboa Martinez - You have some wonderful photos. Thank you for sharing your blog with The Old Lahaina Luau. I am the hula dancer in yellow…very nice shot. It’s not too often that we get to see pictures that the guests take. Mahalo, Paula

We went whal watching and I got this shot! I think I was pretty lucky… There were 2 males fighting over the female..and one of the males knocked this one on the behind..and made him come up out of water! We saw a TON of them!! Anyway… here are some other shots too..of… hotel.. and the rainbow from yesterday! 🙂

  • LIZZY - I love the third picture! Yummy Maui. Great…I opened my eyes and I was in my office still…dang work!

Ha! So I just figured out how easy it is to post in the blog from my phone! So you might be getting a few random posts from me this week!! Okay! So we just got back from scuba diving!! Woo! We saw turtles and eels and I held the cutest little baby octopus! As we were finishing up two barracudas were swimming above us… Uhh… No good.  Ha! Oh! And then…  you hear whales "singing" or calling their mate? That was pretty amazing… I'd love to go on a whale watch while I'm here..so hopefully I'll have some cool stuff to show you! :)We are sitting by the pool eating some lunch and watching the superbowl! Here is a picture of me  I took with my phone after we went scuba diving and very tacky yet fabulous ring! Haha! Aloha! See the lei!!

Scuba diving!!
