Our last full day on Maui - relaxing morning chez nous, beginning to clear out the drawers and repack - always a quiet time on our travels - then down to Airport Beach for a couple of hours and a final time snorkeling - just getting used to it and I have to return home.

Today the humpback whales were very active - many sightings a short distance off the beach. While we did a whale-watching excursion and the people at the Pacific Ocean Foundation are very earnest and provide a lot of additional information, most visitors to Maui at this time of year likely don't need to take a dedicated trip to see whales. They are easy to spot from almost any vantage point - on the water or beach or just driving along the coast.

In the early afternoon we drove over to nearby resort complex on Ka'anapali Beach for lunch and a bit of shopping before heading into Lahaina for a final visit and a Happy Hour drink at the Pioneer Inn.

In the evening, accompanied by Melissa and Michael, we enjoyed an excellent final dinner at Pacific'O restaurant on Front Street in Lahaina, next to the location of the feast at Lele.

Tomorrow, we're going home. Sigh.
