We're baaack!

 On the PLANE!

On our little lanai

The apartment

The grounds of the complex

The beach on the grounds!

Our beach, complete with reef for snorkeling!

and tide pools

a little cloudy, but who's complaining?

the reef is directly behind me, the water drops off there and you can see tons of fish, including creepy neon eels!

Suited up for the sun!

 Once again, blogger has wasted a perfectly good hour of my time, by eating my photos and mucking up my posts.  Here is some of our Maui vacation.  I am too irritated to try to fix the rest.

The world's largest banyan tree takes up four city blocks!

It is impossible to capture the size and this tree!

Lunch at the very touristy "Cheeseburger in Paradise", which offered a terrific view.


At the old Prison in Lahaina

I decided that we could handle a level "4" HIKE to a waterfall, inside the rain forest.  Have I mentioned we aren't really outdoorsy people?

The rain forest is cold, and muddy and very RAINY, but the plants are amazing!

Freyja is saying "My mother made us hike down a VERY steep cliff face!"

THIS! is what I was looking for!!! Spectacular!!

Check out my sexy Portuguese fisherman's shoes, that are useful for climbing on wet mossy rocks!

The water is ice cold and right behind me there is a drop off, which is deep. We swam out and under the waterfall.

Maxwell being very brave!

Round two, this fall is much less cold, but no one will come in with me, since getting down to the falls required a super scary hike down a very steep rock wall.  They were all a little cranky, but I was ecstatic.

Mark about half way down, helping some other folks to the ledge.

Way steeper than it looks!

The next day Maxwell and I went parasailing. I hate boats and speed and heights, but he really wanted to do it...

then he got a little freaked out.

but it was too late, we were committed.

Mark said "they had 800foot and 1,200 foot, for nearly the same price, so I got you the 1,200 foot rope!" Gee thanks!  Going up! and UP, and UP!

Miss F waiting for our return

We lived!

Freyja was very proud to have only "cut off daddy's head" in this photo!

The next day we went snorkeling out in the open ocean, off this big boat, at the reef off Molokini (look it up, it's famous).  Freyja got hella sea sick.

Rocking her wetsuit, prior to the seasickness.

Maxwell going in... 30' of water.  It was incredibly cool and amazing and I can't even find the words right now to say how excellent it was.

A turtle, at the aquarium, just like the ones we saw on our snorkeling trip.

Maxwell wiping out on his boogieboard. 

My view from my book.

On our way out, to go home.

This little guy crashed on our patio

Our super silly rental car.
