This phrase, Maui no ka 'oi means "Maui is the best." I have to agree!
Sharon and M'Linda arrived late Monday afternoon. Here it is Friday and I haven't written a blog all week! Because we are having fun. We go to a different beach every day. Even though I am not a sun worshiping lady, every other day I pick a beach that has a shady area for me.
Christmas Eve was a little party for ladies ... snacks and wine and stories and laughter. Christmas day I grilled Chilean sea bass as well as asparagus, red onion slices, potatoes and cherry tomatoes. It was beautiful, Christmas colors and quite tasty. M'Linda brought THREE bottles of wine in her suitcase so we enjoyed a Boedecker Pinot Noir that was fabulous.
Last night we made festive pomegranate martinis. This morning we went on a two hour whale watch. We did get to see quite a few whales but none were very close. February is the best month for lots of close up action. I've been on many whale watching trips in Maui and I learn something new every time! Today's biologist informed us that the whales arrive in a staggered progression .... young males followed by older males, ladies with yearlings then pregnant whales. This is both a birthing place and a breeding place.
Tonight we are going to the Kihei monthly festivities featuring craft vendors and food vendors.
Maui no ka 'oi!
