It was early and the moon was just high enough to make it perfect for a morning swim. Ben hit the pool and I snapped these photos. We were heading out from our time near Paia and so I took the opportunity to wander around the Lumeria one last time before we left.
We decided on a whim that before did other things that day that we should check out the Maui swap meet. It was everything you would expect it to be though surprisingly less touristy then it could have been. There was a good mix of people and though we bought a few trinkets, we ultimately did eat some delicious food.
Fun fact: this stand also has a full-fledged brick and mortar location now. I highly recommend the lilikoi malasada if you’re lucky to be there when it is in season. It’s also just the fluffiest doughnut and custard ever.
I’m weirdly into Maui Girlz Shave Ice. Apparently, I’m not the only one. Be warned though, they’re only found at the swap meet, at least hat I can see online and their shave ice is my absolute favorite on the island.
We drove down to Wailea which is really a hop, skip and a drive away. Stopped by the beach before lunch because we had some extra time. Well, technically I think we were in Kihea but really it’s comparing apples to apples or in this case – beautiful sun soaked beach to beautiful sun soaked beach.
Before we headed to our hotel in Lahaina, we stopped by our island favorite – Sam Sato’s. There’s pretty much only one rule here and it is – always get the dry noodles. I like to douse mine with black pepper and then follow up everything with some manju. I kid you not when I say it’s really not worth missing, even if you’re stuffed to the gills.
More to come soon, stay tuned…
