The rain in Maui has finally stopped! Or at least it has stopped long enough to have a great weekend outside. Beth has started taking call time again at work, which meant we couldn’t stray too far on Saturday. So it was a perfect day to head to the beach!
We headed to our favorite beach so far – Kamaole Beach III. It is in our town of Kihei and is only about a 10 minute drive from our apartment. It’s known for being a great swimming and boogie boarding beach because it has a very sandy bottom and not many rocks.
Going to beaches is much nicer now because both Sophia and Sawyer are old enough to have fun on their own. They don’t need to be entertained the entire time we are there. They had a great time alternating between playing in the sand and playing in the water. Beth and I both managed a few turns boogie boarding. It was easier than I thought!
Today we ventured down the Road to Hana to a waterfall called Twin Falls. It is a nice waterfall that you can swim in, but you have to walk quite a ways through water to get there. With our handy water shoes on, we manged to make it to the falls without too much hassle. The water was very refreshing – and by “refreshing” I mean freezing. But swimming in a waterfall is fun, so we all sucked it up and got in.
After a quick picnic lunch and a little bit more playing in the water, it was time to head home. The Road to Hana is supposed to be one of the most scenic drives in the world. We have only gone a fraction of the way so far. Instead of taking in the whole drive in one day, we have the luxury of spacing out the sights over a few visits. Many more waterfalls await, and I can’t wait to see them!
