Ghostly old church (at about 4am)
On our last morning on Maui, we went back to Honolua Bay
We were the first people there at 6:30am
Hey, I found a truck axle.
So many chickens
Dipping in the pool as we checked out of the hotel.

Blowhole warning sign
Wow, they really mean business
These people clearly don’t read signs
At Ohai trail
A cool bird with a long tail
Another cool bird with a long double tail
Warnings at the Olivine Pools amazing tide pool formation. We ignored these warnings.
Last Maui selfie in the Olivine pools
Strange rocks near Olivine Pools
Kukuipuka Heiau at Waihe’e ridge
Inside the Heiau
Somebody does an immaculate job with upkeep at the heiau
View of central Maui from the heiau… you can see why somebody would build a shrine here.
Rockin the dad bod while trying to photograph those cardinals
It just wouldn’t be a Maui adventure without a random cow.
My camera battery died right when we got to I
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.
