i've got everything that i need, right in front of me

we have had a few rainy, windy, cold days here in maui.  so, we have been toodling around hiking in-between rain showers.  super beautiful landscapes.  so out of the ordinary.  the kids turn into sweat balls in the back seat as we drive.  the days are running into each other.  i am hoping by the end of the trip {which is in a couple of days} i will be able to pull all my thoughts together into a grand finale of sorts.  our favourite spots and experiences.  until then, pics will have to do.

road to hana

we did it.  we drove to hana.  it took us all day.  it was the longest, windiest, nutiest drive.

the payoff was the black sand beach we hit right before hana.  BLACK SAND people.  it was crazy.  the water was not swimmable. huge waves, crashing hard.  we sat on the beach and watched people get in and get tossed around.  the sand was just incredible, so black.

we found a sea cave that lead out to the water.  there were giant holes in the ceiling of the cave that let in amazing natural light.  we snapped some shots and got out of there as the waves would come up and in the cave.  i am sure it fills as the tide comes in.  super cool.
