Aloha from Maui

Napili Bay

I'm sitting here listening to the sound of the surf with a cool MaiTai. We are here at Napili Bay and the condo is just as we expected. It is very well furnished and will be a good place to relax. And isn't it a great view from our lanai!

We got in on time around 1:30 and headed off to Costco after picking up our car. We said we were just going to see what they had but ended up stocking up on beverages and snacks. We did get a good filet of Opah that was from Hawaii for dinner tomorrow along with local lettuce, pineapple and coffee.

We headed off to the condo and it took about 1 1/2 hours to get to Napili. The traffic was backed up going in to Lahaina. Not certain why - there is construction in Lahaina but not completely certain that caused all the backup. The radio was wondering what was up and what was causing the slowdown.

The rain started at Lahaina - not to hard and stopped a bit. We saw a gorgeous 180 rainbow and the clouds closed in. We got to our condo, checked it out, unloaded the Costco haul and then headed back to the Times Supermarket in Honokowai to get breakfast stuff. On the way back to the condo, we stopped at Honokowai Okazuya & Deli for some takeout. G got the Panko Mahi Mahi and I got the Sauteed Mahi Mahi with capers. We took it back to the condo and had a relaxing dinner. Thanks for the recommendation menehune!

The surf is pretty loud. It has been booming most of the evening. I remember reading one review that said it was loud - It may be a bit from the rain and high surf. But it sounds great - and I love being right at the ocean.

Here's our dinner:

Hi Marta, so happy to hear that you both arrived in Maui safe and sound. I am so jealous. What a beautiful view from your lanai and right on the beach. Very nice. I am also jealsous of your delicious looking local food that you are dining on. Yum!

I was hoping that you would be blogging from Maui. Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I am looking forward to reading about your experiences. Have fun.

Beautiful photo and view. Sounds like a great place to stay. I also love hearing the ocean boom at night.

It is rainy again today :{

I hope this storm passes quickly. Although we really do need the rain, not when you are here!
