Maui Wowy

It's been awhile since my last post. Let me start by saying that last week I took a vacation Maui and met up with my cousins. We had a great time and luckily the weather was wonderful! I got a couple of surf sessions in. We were in Kihei and the surf is generally small on that side of the island, perfect for me :) I think I went swimming once, but mostly did things like attend a birthday party for my cousin's daughter and drove up to to Tedeschi Vineyards in Ulupalakue Ranch. I brought back some pineapple wine and a few boxes of candy, but not much else. Across the street we went and had Elk burgers and hung out for lunch. After that, we went to Paia and had the best shaved ice that I have ever had! We also had shaved iced in Lahina, but it was not the best.

Before I left, I stole my friend Crissy's antenna topper from her truck. It's a surfboard shape and I took it with me to Maui. I gave it a Hawaiian shirt and some shades and put it in some scenic back drops along the trip:

I'm back home now. It's cold and rainy and I couldn't bring myself to surf yesterday because it was so cold and windy :( The waves looked fun, but I wanted to keep my memory of surfing Maui just a little bit longer.
