Bree and I went there this morning - up at god awful'o'clock, dressed in layers of clothing - thinking we would be warm enough, little did we know, got there to be given two more layers of clothing, as well as gloves, thought this would be overkill - huh - 30deg F - which for all you aussies is below zero - wind chill factor would have made it a lot worse, add to that the fact that there has been a storm, and instead of the cloud layer being below the top - it was at the top - so we were walking through a cloud - felt like ice razors tearing at your face - needless to say - we did not witness the sunrise - we knew it had risen - but made little difference up there.
Bree then biked down - I was supposed to - but had been awake since 7:45 the previous morning and could barely still stand - (in fact when I didn't ride the bike - I went in the escort van, and was nodding of so much while the driver was trying to talk to me - telling me about everything I was/(wasn't) seeing, that he told me about 1/4 of the way down - "you know that seat lays back?" - I woke at intervals during the trip - and finally Bree had to let me know that we were back in Lahaina - getting old sucks
Later that same day Rae, Chris and I went for another wander through Maui, back to Moose McGillicuddys for lunch - Chris and I met the man of our dreams - and there could be serious warfare over this one, bought some cookies - ( a Lahaina must do) and back for a nice relaxing night)
Earlier in the day Rae & Chris went on Atlantis Submarine - pictures included - they can do the commentary later
The second day in Maui , Chris & I set off at about 8.40am for our Submarine experience, it was a beautiful day on the water, had a few laughs with the captain on the way out to the sub it was pretty cool going on the sub, although thought maybe we sat on the wrong side when the people behind us were getting all the views , until it turned around so we could get the same as well, the deepest we went down to was I think 128 fathoms ? I think that's right, there was an old wreck down there that they had deliberately sunk for the fact that the algae that would grow on it would attract more fish, so many different types of fish we saw 1 big eel , Spongebob Square Pants was also down there sitting on the side of the wreck
Cannot believe Rae made us book into the first Submarine tour of the day, I am on holidays we are suppose to sleep in!!! The Sub was great and it worked out well going on the early tour as it was only half full so lots of space to spread out. I didn't realise that you lost so much colour in the colour spectrum when you where under water. The coral, fish and sunken ship was really interesting though not very colourful was kind of expecting colourful coral like the Great Barrier Reef has but apparently that is because it is shallower.
I do love sombody’s sense of humour in putting Sponge Bob Square Pants down on the sunken boat.
Enjoyed being in the Sub this morning when we got back just in time to see the Girls wobble off down the road on their scooters.
Rae, Sue and I had lunch at pub again have photos this time we then went to the cookie shop.
Then we found the cousin of Bree's new boyfriend and we took a photo with him, Sue was throwing him kisses so I think David might have so competition!!
Laid down this afternoon to much food for lunch.
Most fun of the day I GOT TO RIDE ON THE GIRLS SCOOTERS !!
When I win lotto I am getting one!! So much fun.
Must go now I have been elected chef of the Barbie for dinner.
It was a great night, swimming in the pool, this hotel was soo gorgeous, the beautiful pool was soo relaxing - Except for Ebonys underwater camera!! Funny times though, we took some very - INTERESTING photos. I think my body looks better underwater - zero gravity lol
I know why we voted Chris as BBQ chef - awesome BBQER :)
After dinner, It was drinks & then to the spa, so relaxing, interesting people to meet, was sad to be leaving
