It’s Tuesday, 7/27 and our plane leaves Maui at 9 p.m. local time. We had to be out of our rental at 11 a.m. leaving a nice big hole of time to fill with any last minute activities. What to do, what to do.
First, it was off to get henna tattoos. We had seen this booth/tent in Lahaina each time we ate at Moose’s, and we thought it would be a good (although not entirely permanent) way to remember Maui. Me and the kids each got one. Then it was off to a last lunch at Lulu’s (which was one of the first places we ate back in June).
After that, it was into the car for a drive to Kahului. We returned the surfboard, dropped Mike off at Starbucks to work (dedication at every turn!) and headed off to our next adventure. As Mara says, today was like a mini-summary of our time in Maui…
Last stop at Ono Gelato in P’aia
Hiking the Waihou Spring Trail (stopping short of the actual spring due to time and lack of water – so not really any spring this day)
We then picked up Mike, grabbed a quick bite of Mexican at Las Pinata’s and headed for the airport. It was sad to leave – we have had a great summer that truly was something that many people just dream about. But, we missed our family, friends and plenty of things about our hometown. Like lots of us have said before – it’s good to get away, but it’s good to get back home, too.
