Hawaii 2009

My cousin was getting married in Hawaii 2009 so we decided to make it a family trip. We flew in on the Friday before the wedding and planned to stay for 7 days.  The wedding was in Maui in the town of Kihei.

The first few days we stayed near Kihei for the wedding.  We didn’t do much except swim in the pool at the resort and hang out at the beach.  Notice, I consider that kind of stuff not doing much.  I’m used to the vacations where I come home dead tired every night from hiking or biking.

The day after the wedding we left Kihei and headed to Hana.  We drove the Hana Highway out to Hana and stopped at various mile markers on the way to hike to waterfalls.  Unfortunately, a bridge on the road to the Seven Sacred Pools was under construction so we weren’t able to see them.  We rented a small cottage in Hana and stayed there for two nights.

The 2nd day in Hana we went kayaking to a small cove and did some snorkeling.  Having had a business selling reef fish and corals many years ago, I am able to identify most of the fish I see in the ocean.  I was able to see some of my favorite reef fish and follow them for a while.  I saw many Naso Tangs and the Hawaiian state fish the Humu Humu Trigger.

On the third day we drove to Haleakala National Park where we did a short hike on the the skyline trail and then a longer hike on the Sliding Sands Trail.  I went to the Ka Luu ok a Oo Crater.  Kevin hiked to Paliku campground and stayed overnight.

On the fourth day, my dad and I went to the Maui Ocean Center.  It’s a decent aquarium but lacked variety because the center contained only fish that were local to Hawaii.  Water is pumped in from the ocean but is still filtered.  After staying in the aquarium about 1 hour we left to go back to Haleakala National Park to pick up Kevin.

On the fifth day we said goodbye to Hawaii.
