Next we drove a little further south to look one more time through the downtown of Lahaina. We were surprised with the lack of people compared to when we've been there previously, maybe because it was only the morning. Made a few more purchases and then headed back to the condo for a late lunch. Then it was down to the pool for some sunshine on our last day here and a final dip in the water for me. I divided my time though between the pool and the hockey game. Beth talked to a couple from Minnesota who are here for a few more days and so she gave them our few leftover food items. I guess tonight we'll have to begin packing up. We need to be out of the condo by 11:00 tomorrow morning and then we'll head over to Kahului to hang out before taking back the car and heading to the airport around 3:30. Our flight leaves at 6:10 but we have a 3 hour layover in Honolulu, a 5 hour flight, a 3 hour layover in San Francisco, and a 5 hour flight into Toronto, arriving there at 3:30 on Friday. With the long layovers at least we shouldn't have to run to connecting flights.
We've had such an incredible time on our holiday in Maui, getting to see pretty much everything we wanted to and exploring almost the entire island. It meant for some busy days but each was a wonderful experience that we so enjoyed sharing together. The weather has been warm and sunny and the scenery is amazingly beautiful. At the luau somebody asked what my favourite part of Maui was and I had a hard time answering. I ended up saying that it was pretty fantastic to see the almost continual whale activity out our window each day. Today I said I was quite thankful to have been able to wear flip flops for the last 10 days. I guess it's back to boots soon.
