    Maui Wave Riders - Surf Lesson

    November 10 in the United States

    Heute gehen wir zum ersten Mal in unserem Leben surfen. Unser Surflehrer Ina alias Booty Shak zeigt uns ein paar Trockenübungen und dann geht es auch direkt ins Wasser. Zwei Stunden haben wir Zeit, das Aufstehen und das Gleiten über die Wellen zu üben. Das macht riesigen Spaß!! Simone steht sogar ihre allererste Welle - Matze sieht dabei aber cooler aus 😉

    Kein Sturm, nicht mal Regen?!

    August 24 in the United States

    Tja, wir können es immer noch nicht fassen. Da hatten die entspannten Gastgeber Recht mit ihrer Prognose. Es wird ein wenig regnen und vielleicht ein bisschen Wind geben. Mehr Auswirkungen wird der vorbeiziehen Hurricane Lane nicht haben. Und so war es dann auch:
    Wir waren heute sogar in Kihei am Strand. Dort fiel bis abends nicht ein Tropfen vom Himmel! Das konnten wir für einen Spaziergang entlang des Strandes nutzen...Read more

    Genug Sonne für mich!

    August 27 in the United States

    Sonne tanken, denn bisher hatten wir noch keinen richtigen Strandtag. (Der vor ein paar Tagen zählte nicht, da wir nach ein paar Minuten vom Regen verscheucht wurden)
    Meli hatte sogar eine kurze Begegnung mit einer Schildkröte beim Schwimmen! Ich dagegen kann jetzt zumindest Speck auf meinen Oberschenkeln braten - Dank meines Sonnenbrandes. Die Sonne hier ist echt nicht ohne...
    Abends versuchten wir noch den Sonnenuntergang zu genießen, jedoch wollten die Wolken es wohl nicht zulassen. Wir mussten ihn uns schließlich vorstellen (und mit ein paar Bierchen ging's).Read more

    Threes Bar and Grill

    February 27 in the United States

    Omg so good. This restaurant was featured on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. We also had an amazingly good shrimp appetizer but I forgot to take a photo before eating it. Oops!
    Also included a few photos from the koi pond just outside the restaurant.

    Kapulanikai in Kihei

    April 1, 2017 in the United States

    Our new home has one bedroom (with a king-size bed!) and is located ocean front. There are 12 units in this small condo building which was built in 1974 by 3 Albertans who offered other Canadians an opportunity to buy a 2 week share in the property. Most of the group staying here this week are owners from Calgary who are very friendly, including us in their daily happy hour at sunset. The interior is very modest with older furnishings but the location compensates for that. Our lanai looks over a large lawn, banyan and fruit trees, and the ocean. We have our own private beach but John enjoys the small, heated salt water pool complete with pool noodles. Today I ate a ripe banana that was picked freshly from one of the banana trees....that's a first for me!Read more

    Maui - Day 5 & 6 (Ohana)

    August 7, 2016 in the United States

    Yesterday Amanda and I took a puddle jumper from Oahu to Maui. We picked up our rental car and headed twenty minutes west to meet up with some old friends who've put down roots here in Maui. We caught up with them at the locally renowned Kihei Cafe where our friend ordered a family style breakfast with everything from traditional Hawaiian fried rice and gravy to banana macadamia nut pancakes and everything in between. (The local iced coffee is out of this world and quite possibly the best I've ever had.) We then spent the rest of the day getting settled into the condo we rented, visiting the local food market, and hanging out on our lanai which overlooks, you guessed it, the Pacific Ocean. Our friends came over and we cooked a family style meal together. The food was great and the company was even better!

    This morning our friend, a professional baker by trade, cooked us a phenomenal breakfast from scratch including fresh squeezed orange juice, brioche French toast, German pancakes, banana muffins, and bacon (okay, the bacon wasn't from scratch). We also had locally grown Hawaiian fruit including starfruit, guava, pineapple, and a super tart fruit with crunchy seeds you eat whose name escapes me... I loved it. Our coffee was from a sur la table which we learned takes out all of the acidity in the coffee and results in a smooth, velvety cup of joe. Amazon prime here we come!

    Originally the plan was for me to stay out of the water the remainder of our trip after my knee incident, but our friends would have none of it. They made my wound watertight with a homeopathic remedy known to the island locals as "dragon's blood" and although I was weary it worked like a charm! We spent the remainder of the day on one of the world's 10 best beaches, Keawakapu Beach in Wailea. Swimming in the bluest, clearest water I've ever seen was an unforgettable experience. To share it with my wife and friends made it all the better.

    I'm writing this as Amanda and I watch the sunset from our lanai. Soon we'll be off to grab some local bbq and finish the night with some shaved ice. I sure could get used to an island life... things move much slower here and relaxing is exactly what we needed. We are so grateful for this experience.
