Sep 25, 2015 - Haleakala National Park
Up this morning and off to the local restaurant (Tasty Crust) for breakfast and some banana pancakes, it is a very beautiful day so I am off for the Drive to Haleakala National Park. Was a bit cooler on top 68 and I didn't take a jacket and was in shorts, brrrrr, great view from on top, did a short hike to the top of the mountain and a went down the sliding sands trail part way, a great day. Down the mountain to Kula, checking out the goat dairy, the Ocean distillery, making organic vodka, and to the Maui Winery on the Piilani Hwy. This...Jump to full entry
Jan 26, 2013 - Upcountry Gem
Hard to believe we have been here a week already. I must admiththough that I have completely lost track of the days, one just seems to run into the next. I was up early again to watch the sun come up and checked my email. We had a sad message this morning. Our friend John Johnson, who is the same age as Dianne, is in hospital with heart problems. He did not have a heart attack but had what doctors referred to as a "V Attack", which means a portion of his heart is not functioning properly. He has high blood pressure as it is.

Feb 22, 2009 - Whale Days In kehei.
Today we walked downtown at 9:00 am to see a save the whales parade. It was great. Then we headed into the main park downtown to see live entertainment and get some fresh made food.

It was all over at 5:00pm so Rox and me...Jump to full entry
Feb 21, 2009 - Whale Watching & Lahaina.
Today we did the whale tour on Scotch mist a 50 foot Santa Cruise sailboat. We saw about 8 whales up pretty close. Did not get any good pics but got some video. Was great and we did sail and it was smooth in fairly large seas and wind gusts. We were able to clear the wind and float around with the whales in the sun as well. After the whale watch we headed over to Cheezburger in Paradise for a couple of Mai Tais and some live music. When we first arrived in Lahaina, I was checking out a fruit tree when a fellow named Steve offered us some...Jump to full entry
Feb 20, 2009 - Delay To Whale Watch.
Yes it is true. There was a four car accident that closed the highway about three hours. We had to turn around and headed for Makawao instead and checked out the area. We went down to the beach and checked out some surfers on the big waves at Hookipa Park. We may check out the pub down the street after dinner to do a bit of boogieing with out the board.
