Went to Maui recently for 7 days and I re-familiarized myself with what it means to relax. It is so slow and balmy and breezy and lush. The second to last pic was taken up at Haleakala National Park, and the last one was the beginnings of the three hurricanes that threatened our departure. Our friends, who stayed on after we left, said it was no biggie.
The first two pics are my vistas, left and right, from the beach in front of the house we stayed in; taken at just after sunrise. We stayed on the north shore in a residential area. Quiet, very few people, perfect.
