On Maui Time

Arrived at Kahului Airport yesterday at 4:50pm local time, via Toronto & San Francisco. We were met at the airport by Liz's friend, Melissa. We are staying in a private residence, in an ohana unit (think granny flat) at Ka'anapali - nice area.

This morning we left at 4:30am & drove almost 2 hours over to Haleakala National Park to watch the sunrise from the top of the volcanic crater - 10,023' - the highest we have ever been outside of an airplane. About 200 people from all over were there, including a couple from Saskatoon. Very cool & windy from the top of the crater - well worth it as the views were spectacular. Breakfast at Grandma's Coffee House in Kuna, then back over to Lahaina/Ka'anapali area for a relaxing afternoon.
