Maui 2013

This Christmas my family has been super busy so I am sorry I haven’t written a lot. This post is going to be about our family trip to Maui!

It was super fun to relax and be in the sun! We stayed at a very nice resort in a region called Ka’anapali. At the resort we had around 5 different pools! Every day we had the same schedule:

7:30 wake up
8:30 breakfast (sometimes at the resort buffet)
9:30 go to a beach (sometimes local, sometimes far away)
2:00 come home
2:30 shower
3:00 pool
5:00 shower (lots of showers throughout the day!)
5:30 relax
7:00 dinner ( sometimes at resort, sometimes at BBQ that resort provides, sometimes at restaurant)
10:00 bed time!

So as you can see it was a pretty packed day but it was worth all the long drives and showers!
One night we did a kids club so my parents could go out for dinner alone. The theme that night was ghost crab hunting! Ghost crabs are also known as sand crabs and they are pretty spooky. At that camp I made some friends.

On our second to last day in Maui we went Whale Watching with Captain Ryan in a 18 people maximum raft. At the beginning of the boat ride he said to have “Whale Mojo” to attract them. Well, it worked! On our second whale stop there were 2 whales going under our boat! They were so close that when the whale went up for air I could feel a tiny bit of water come out of its blow hole. Near the end of the boat ride he asked if some people would like to put on some goggles, be held by their ankles and stick their head in the water. Cate, my mum, and I all did. That was an experience I will never forget!

My dad was very generous and gave us each $25 to buy souvenirs. I bought a Hawaiian dress, a flower clip, Hawaiian flower lip balm, a necklace, earrings, and turtles made from shells. This stuff is to bring back memories because Maui is a trip I don’t want to forget!
