Another day in paradise

Our last full day on Maui - relaxing morning chez nous and on Airport Beach; lunch & a bit of shopping at the nearby resort complex on Ka'anapali Beach; mid-afternoon into Lahaina for a final visit and a Happy Hour drink at the Pioneer Inn; an excellent final dinner at pacific'O in Lahaina with our friends, Melissa and Michael - see below. Our servers were from Southern California and Chicago, Illinois.

Many people have commented on the number of Canadians on Maui - by some accounts they outnumber American visitors - impossible to believe. But while this is a great place to visit, there are signs of continuing economic difficulties and the Canadian $ is at par or slightly higher than it's American counterpart. Plus, of course, Canadians like to get away for at least part of our winter. Perhaps Maui is more affordable and even more attractive than in previous years. Before we get too pleased with ourselves, there is a Q & A common among servers on Maui:

Q - What's the difference between Canadians and canoes?

A - Canoes tip.

Tomorrow, we're going home. Sigh.
