Maui day 9: Honolua Bay snorkeling, West Maui drive, Iao Valley

Early (early!) morning run

Breakfast at McDonalds, then went to Honolua Bay at 6:30am (first ones there), saw fish and one more turtle.  Back to hotel, brief swim in pool, then packed up and cleaned up (and shower beer) to check out.  Loaded the car, drove around the West Side.  Missed the first beach we wanted to check out, stopped at blowhole, Ohai trail, Olivene pools, Kahakuloa church, Julia’s fruit stand for POG limonade, Waihe’e ridge (for the Heiau, skipped the trail).  Started feeling the time crunch, but went to Iao valley briefly to see the needle, jumped in a freshwater stream with an asian family to swim and get the salt off (no shower necessary!).  Long’s drugs to get plane snacks and Da Kitchen for dinner (Katsu Moko plate: chicken Katsu plus loco moko, ate half, ate half for dinner Sunday back home).  Drank last maui beer while cleaning out the car in the Da Kitchen parking lot.  Then to the airport, checked in, left my board shorts and flip flops on, depart 8:10pm, arrive Boston 2:10pm Sunday.
