Day 1 Stand up paddle boarding. : As i read my book i saw a picture of stand up paddle boarding and new this was something i wanted to try. Well to our luck our apartment was right by cove park a huge beach for paddle boarding.
This first picture was taken at about 7 am when i woke up. Locals love to take their dogs out to paddle. I love it.
For dinner we went to the HUMUHUMUNUKUNUKUAPUA'A. My mom told me if we were to dine in at one expensive restaurant this should be it. WE both had delicious salmon and delicious dessert. the only thing i wish is that we had a reservation when it was still daylight so we could dine at sunset.
DaY two: Haleakala Crater. we woke up at 2:30 ate packed our snow gear and headed 2 hours to the crater. it is 10,000 elevation. thus a very twisty windy road. its pretty popular to bike down it but we chose to save the cash and drive. which im so happy for. cause it was pretty dang cold. Up there is so beautiful. we arrived at 515 A.M. and all you could see were 1 million stars and lots of clouds. we were above all the clouds it was awesome.
The night before i said. Man i really dont want to wake up at 230 and tanner said well lets not. but i thought you know. i heard its so awesome and i dont really want to miss it.
im so happy that we just went. it was the neatest view i have ever seen.
Dont worry i could have still used my gloves. It was 47 degrees and pretty windy.
so glad i didnt listen to the people that said oh you just need a sweatshirt. ya right! i had long sleeve plus under armor plus sweatshirt plus beanie plus blanket winter socks i was just right .
After the sunrise we snorkeled and then can you guess??? the surfing monkey caught our attention. best shaved ice in my life. the lady there was so nice too. we always got icecream at the bottom. and two different flavs.
That concludes this post. hold up for the next few days of MAUI
