Road to Hana

My pictures are from the end of the trip to the beginning. But it was really nice. I get car sick and the road is really bad, but if we could have taken all day and stayed the night there and came back in next day it would have been great. I took Dramamine and it just took me out. I really thought it was beautiful but I couldn't get out and really enjoy it like Luis really wanted to I was just so tired.

This is the end. It was really nice I wanted to get in but I was having a hard time keeping my eyes open. Luis got in.

Bay watch really missed out on this hunk!

At every turn there was water falls, you had to look to find some of them but they were all great.
Right off the road, there was tons of people pulled off the road just for these pictures.

This is one of the turns in the road we stopped and climbed over the wall and hiked to the waterfall
It was a small waterfall but it was nice.

Twin Falls was our first stop it was really cool,
flower
This is a little girl jumping into the waterfall pool, from way to high... she was fine her dad was there telling her to hurry up so her little sister could do it before she chickened out.
I didn't know pineapple grew on the ground, I thought it was like cocoanut. But there it is!

snorkeling in Maui


This is our day cruise, it was so nice. The water was amazing. Just a little cold, but the people were there with wet suits for us too.




We had breakfast and Lunch on the boat and the crew was awesome. They were always there to fill your drinks, help you around the boat when it was going and even in the water they were going around making sure that we were ok, and seeing all the fish that was there.



This is one way to get off the boat. Thats me waiting for my noodle to be given to me.

Luis is an awesome swimmer and I was to chicken to swim down to far. The water was about 55 feet deep. Luis would swim down a little and get good pictures


Just before we jumped in the waster we saw dolphins. The crew on the boat said" for every one you see there is 3 more under water. "

I really liked the yellow fish.

Can you see the fish in this picture? One of the crew members showed us this fish and we couldn't see it until he touched it and made it swim. This is a picture of what our boat looks like. Horror store, beware if you get queasy you may not want to read on ... just skip to the next picture. On the way back we had an 2 and a half hour boat ride. I was getting tired and that boat was throwing people all over the place. I thought I would be fine, but boy was I wrong. I got sick. So we moved to the bottom of the boat and I was starting to feel a little better, Luis went in the front of the boat to check it out, and I was in the middle of the boat, All of a sudden i jump up walked (because I couldn't run or I would fall) as fast as I could to the back of the boat , but I couldn't make it. I got to the side and lost it. The only problem at the side of the boat is the wind. I ended up throwing up on the 4 people sitting behind me. I felt so bad but the were nice and tried to help me out. They gave up the sits and I sat there feeling so much better all the way home. I was scared to move from my seat, because I knew I would get sick again but in the back I felt great.

This pictures where when we were just snorkeling around our room. We wanted to see turtle so bad we were asking everyone and ended up seeing and swimming with about 12 of them. IT was so cool. And they were so big, it was crazy, swimming with this turtles that are bigger then us.
It was so great we loved it all.

Maui

For our 6th year anniversery we went to Maui. This is the view from our room. You can go straight into the water and there are hundreds of fish, just right there in front of our room.

Here is another picture of our room from the out side.
We got there about 1, and we were tired from the flight. So we walked around and saw what the hotel had for us.
But this was the sunset right in front of our room. The next day was Sunday. So we typed it into the GPS so we went for the closest one. Turned out it wasn't the closest one and we past 3 or 4 other churches on the way to this one, but we enjoyed it. And the people were so nice.
Some of the people we talked to at church told us we should go and see the first church on the island. So after church we found it.
The missionaries live next to the building. They don't use the building but you can go in and see what it looked like.

After we looked around, as we were living Luis saw a tree next door. "Thats an Avacado tree!" So we walked over and asked the guy there if we could have one. He was nice, and said yes. So Luis got one. I didn't take a picture of it but it was 2 to 3 times the size we see at the stores.That was the view from the church. Just amazing.

This is a video of our beautiful hotel, it is a little long, but the ocean was right there all the time, it was just amazing. I will post more soon.
