From Wailea to Hana

Leo and I decided to extend our vacation and venture over to Hana for a couple of days.  We hiked to the Pools at Ohe'o (aka Seven Sacred Pools) and plan to sneak down to the Red Sand Beach today.  Here are a few of my pictures of Hana and I will post my iPhone photos of Ohe'o later.

Maui 2014 - Day Three

Today started with a helicopter adventure that took us around Haleakala and Hana.  We had an amazing experience seeing the beauty and diversity of Maui.  Now I am off with Michael and Mario to Lahaina to see Ulalena.

Maui 2014 - Day Two

Michael, Mario and I went on a road trip to Hookipa Beach, Twin Falls and attempted to drive down the infamous "Road to Hana".  Needless to say we only made it a third of the way down because we ran out of time and we were starving because all we had was pineapple and water.  Next time!

Maui 2014 - Day One

Maui is stunning!  After an exhausting day of traveling we arrived at the Grand Wailea and the grounds are amazing with pools, lazy rivers, water slides, gardens and waterfalls.  My favorite part of day one was body surfing in the ocean.

Sonoma Canopy Tours - Zip Lining 2014

If you ever visit Sonoma County then I highly recommend going to Sonoma Canopy Tours in Occidental (Sonoma Canopy Tours Website) and spend two hours amongst the trees zip lining between Douglas Firs and Giant Redwoods.  If you are afraid of heights then I do not recommend this as you are 200 feet above the ground and you zip line from tree to tree.  The redwood trees have shallow roots which causes them to sway when you land at a redwood tree platform.  It's exciting, exhilarating and makes me feel alive.

Knott's Berry Farm 2014 - Poppy & Grandma's 50th

Poppy & Grandma have been married for 50 years and all they wanted was a family vacation at Knott's Berry Farm.  My sister and I figured we escaped a huge, expensive party but we would have enjoyed it either way.  Happy Anniversary Poppy & Grandma!
