Aloha! Well, I'm back! Maui was both beautiful and exotic- the landscape is drop dead gorgeous and the experience was one of a kind! Those of you who follow me on Instagram were probably crazed by my incessant posting ( I believe I posted about sixteen shots one day), but when there are so many photo-worthy places, how could I resist?
The water of course is incredible- crystal clear and warm. The weather is really the craziest thing- one moment it's sunny, the next it's sprinkling rain. Jenna and I were there right during the whale migration, so we were lucky enough to see a ton of whales, both whale watching, and from the resort we were staying at. Best of all, the beach in the picture above was like sea turtle central- haha! One swam literally inches away from Jenna and I- it was so gorgeous and huge- some lady was following him down the beach yelling, " sea turtle behind you, don't touch it!" Gah- cooky lady kept me from petting a sea turtle haha!
We went in search of a black sand beach, but unfortunately found ourselves a bit off course. Thankfully there's no harm in finding cool new locations on Maui. Get a load of these lava cliffs! Poor Jenna was a good enough sport to follow me up to the top ( I have this thing about hikes and climbing stuff- I just can't help myself sometimes ;). But you can't beat this view, or the chance to take a shot of your feet at the edge of a volcanic rock cliff!
See the sea turtle up there? Isn't he awesome? He was just swimming around in the water below, asking for his picture to be taken ;)
Anyhoo- that's the round up of the 800+ pictures I shot in Hawaii. It was sad leaving, but I am happy to be home safely in So Cal. I brought back a lobster red sunburn, some bug bites and the memories of a lifetime. It was an unforgettable week and it has me excited to do more exploring in this beautiful world God has made!
A huge thank you to the Condon family for making this incredible trip possible! It has been unforgettable and an unbelievable blessing. I am so very grateful for your kindness and your friendship!
