Sunday at the beach

"Plan A" for today was to take the ferry over to Moloka'i, rent a car & explore the island - BUT the ferry doesn't run on Sunday - looks like we'll be doing that on Tuesday.

OK, so we go the "Plan B", beach time - the same one we visited briefly yesterday, but guess what? It has more than one name. Technically, it's part of Ka'anapali Beach, but this area north of Black Rock is also called Kahekili Beach Park and the locals call it Airport Beach. Whatever the name, it's a great place for a morning swim, with a boardwalk most of the way to Black Rock and parking available whenever we go there. OK for snorkeling & SCUBA, but perhaps best for just relaxing. And less than a mile from where we are staying.

Below - Ka'anapali, Kahekili or Airport Beach - a great beach, whatever it's called.

Into Lahaina for lunch at the Pioneer Inn with David & Marcel, then back out to the upscale Whalers' Village Shopping Center in the Ka'anapali Beach area. A Skins Game was underway on a golf course on the property featuring Tom Watson, Fuzzy Zoeller, Bernhard Langer & a few more superannuated golf pros. Interesting to those who finds those kinds of things interesting.

Saw a great T-shirt in a shop. "I'm off to Maui ..... my boss thinks I'm coming back."

Back into Lahaina for pizza at the Maui Revealed recommended Lahaina Pizza Co on Front St. Excellent pizza.

Your Maui Weather Report: Cloudy skies with sunny breaks, with temperatures in the low 80's, and a gentle breeze near the water. Slightly cooler on the hillsides, with signs of precipitation in the valleys in the interior. Warm and dry along trhe coast in West Maui - a beautiful day.

Off on a snorkeling excursion to Molokini tomorrow - have to be at the dock in Ma'alea by 7:00am. An early night this evening.
