A few more if you like them . . . . .
Below, Little Beach, along Kihei side, also along the marathon route but this part was in total darkness when we were passing. In fact, the marathon route ended up in Lahaina, which is on the far edge of the other land mass in the distance. A long way to run.
Below, Hamoa Bay, along the Hana side of the island. . . . . road trippin'
Taro fields on the Kaenae peninsula, on the road to Hana
Below, Ka'anapali Beach, out front of my hotel, which I believe was named the best beach in the world in 2005.
Below, boogie boarding in dangerous surf of Big Beach, between Wailea and Makena.
Below, also along the marathon route, early morning with "Vog" visible. Like a light forest fire fog in Canada, Vog is a combination of volcanic venting and local air pollution haze that was plaguing the islands at the time. This is a primo whale watching spot too. Apparently it was bad for marathoners too. Maui is normally greener this time of year but it was unseasonably dry in this spot.
Below, even a cloudy day on Maui is better than most places. Big Beach. The island of Lanai is the land mass across the way.
