Rainbows in Paradise

Napili Rainbow

We have been following rainbows all day. We took our coffee out to the lanai and were greated with the lovely rainbow above. We had a leisurely breakfast before deciding to go ahead and head out to Lahaina. Just a couple of miles south, the sun broke out and we had a sunny day. The cruise ship had also put down anchor in the harbor this morning and the town was crowded with passengers carrying their little blue cruise ship bags.

After about two hours exploring, we headed further south to Kihei, Wailea and south to Makena (Big) beach. There were dark threatening clouds but no rain. We headed back about 3:30pm and the center was rainy and windy. It cleared along the coast but started up in earnest as we drove farther north. It had been overcast and drizzly all day in the north. We fired up the BBQ and had our opah dinner listening to the surf.

Here are some pictures from the day.

Hi Marta, beautiful rainbows. What a wonderful way to start your morning. I love the variety of images you captured in your photo collection and how you even found a Gelato shop on Maui.

Thank you so much for sharing. Keep on having fun...

Anne:

Oh Marta, your photos just made my day!! Absolutely breathtaking. Especially the first rainbow one, and the banyan tree. Happy Friday to you :)

I'm so glad you were able to find the sun! It was so gloomy here yesterday (although I work in area that tends to be more rainy). I did see a few rainbows also and was hoping you would find some also. Great photo! I hope you have another great day today. :)

Ono..even gelato on a rainy day - what more can you want in paraside:-)

Lookin' great so far! Enjoy!

Oh, Marta - that Makena Beach sky is just amazing! Your other photos are as beautiful as usual. :) Sounds like a nice relaxing week so far. Cheers!
