Two days to go. Liz said that this was the first place we have visited that she would like to stay for at least a couple of months. We are already discussing our return trip, possibly in mid-February next year, but it's a bit "early days" as Brits say.
We spent the morning on Airport Beach at the end of our road. In earlier posts I have referred to this as Ka'anapali Beach or Kahekili Beach Park, but we're into double digits in days now, developing reasonable tans, done a lot of the tourist "must do's", and we're beginning to adjust to "Maui time"; so Airport Beach it is.
Over to Pa'ia in the early afternoon. We had passed throught the village early yesterday morning on the road to Hana - quelle difference! The place was packed - parking available only by pulling over to the side to the road outside of town.
Excellent pizza lunch at the Flatbread Company. Annie, our server, is from Michigan.
While Liz shopped, I spent some time in Anthony's Coffee Company, reading, drinking coffee and chatting with the owner. He's been there 17 years - said I would drop in to see him next year.
A recommended leisurely activity is a walk along Ka'anapali Beach at sunset - the Ka'anapali Beach south of Black Rock - so on our way back from Pa'ia that's what we did.
