That’s right… The fun continues! I’m sure many of you are wondering why I go into such detail about trips, etc.
I’m thinking ahead to years down the road. I’d like to print out my blog posts and have a ‘memory book.’ Until then, I will share the ins and outs of trips, meals, etc. with each of you! 🙂
So, the fun continued! As mentioned in my previous blog post, I would go out for another run this morning and search for a new route – not quite so uphill! The first 1.5 miles were the same as my prior day jog. Instead of turning left to go straight uphill, I took a right and went down by the beach! Look at these gorgeous views of the beach and island of Molokai.
I had a nice breakfast after my jog and then went down to the pool for some further R&R whilst Billy golfed. However, today was not an all day beach/pool day as we had a helicopter waiting for us!
We hopped in our Ford Mustang Convertible and went close to the Maui main airport to catch the helicopter. I was VERY nervous… Especially as they told me I was sitting in the front seat next to the pilot. Did I mention the entire front was a window?! Yikes!
The views were absolutely incredible and we saw loads of lush green spots, waterfalls and the volcano crater. Here are just a few pictures – not even sure they really capture the beauty. We went into some very amazing areas and saw where the opening for Jurassic Park was filmed!
Doesn’t that all look fake or photoshopped? It was incredible! We wasted some time after our helicopter ride in town before heading out to dinner. This dinner was by far one of the best that I’ve EVER had! We ate at Mama’s Fish House.
Take a look at the sunset pictures!
Now, on to the good part… Dinner! Starter: tuna sashimi (absolutely wonderful!); Meal: Lobster and Crab stuffed Mahi Mahi with a lobster tail on the top covered in a beurre blanc sauce (don’t think I need to really say anything further!); Dessert: Black Pearl (wafer ‘shell’ with dark chocolate mousse and a white chocolate mousse center)
On our drive back to the resort, we cruised along with the top down!! It was a perfect end to a wonderful day (after stopping by McDonalds for a $1 Large Diet Coke)!! Then, I fell into a food coma! But, it was so VERY worth it. If you are in Maui, you MUST try this place!
Happy weekend everyone! I’m at the airport lounge bound for Germany!
