My Maui vacation posts are up now. It took me a while to go through the pictures, to type everything up, to mix the pics in with the text, then fix up the mess I made. The mess was simple in retrospect. In a fit of confusion I realized I somehow lost a days post, and the rest of them had bumped up a day. Any way, the mess is sorted out now.
All the posts are in the Maui 2007 category.
Here they are in chronological order.
Day 8 - Saturday November 10
The final day. So sad. We needed to hit the beach one last time. Sprout had such a great time playing in the sand, and in the surf. He would get his little feet wet, then run away when a wave came by. It was pretty cute to watch.
This day I was finally able to get him into the water. I did the Grand ol Dukes of York song from swimming classes and tossed him pretty high up in the air. He kept saying "again, again". So much fun.
Day 7 - Friday November 9
The day was still up in the air, but we all agreed on checking out some of the local markets. In Kihei we dropped off my mom and sister while Sox, Sprout and I continued on to a playground for him. Sprout wasn't that interested in playing by himself, so he sort of clung to mum or dad. It was pretty warm for him, and the playground wasn't 100% shaded. Some of the structures felt a little warm. Still, he wasn't interested in anything there.
Day 6 - Thursday November 8
This morning started with a picture outing for myself. I wanted to get down to the beach in front of our condo but the gate was locked! Weird. I was able to get around the obstacle and get some nice shots while the rest of the gang woke up and ate breakfast.
Day 5 - Wednesday November 7
Sox and I wanted to go snorkeling one morning while we were there so my mom offered to watch Sprout while we went. We hit Snorkel Bobs for directions on where to go. We had gear from the condo, but it wasn't very good gear. The lady at the shop was very helpful, and we headed to the beach near the Maui Prince Hotel. I had heard from someone else that this was a good beach to swim at so we were settled.
Once there the surf seemed reasonable, so in we went. We were hoping to see some coral, some fish, and hopefully some turtles. After visiting the aquarium and after our snorkel trip in Mexico we had high hopes. We were a little disappointed in what we saw, but it was still really fun to float around in the water. We saw a few fish, and some coral formations, but the colors really weren't that vibrant. In retrospect the tanks at the aquarium have special lighting to really bring out the colors. Like I said though, it was still fun to be out in the water floating along.
