On our first full day in Maui, we decided to drive the road to Hana. Anyone ever done this? Let's put it this way, they have t-shirts in Maui that say, "I survived the road to Hana!" Ha! It was a 3 hour drive there....and back. The longest road trip ever. It goes to the complete other side of the island and it is the curviest road! And there are curves that are literally one lane so you have to make sure no one is coming from the other direction! But it was a beautiful drive! And I can imagine that it is even more beautiful during the rainy season!
There is a look-out along the way so we stopped to get some pictures. The waves were pretty big here so there were quite a few surfers out there! I just couldn't get over how gorgeous the weather was while we were there!
Pa'iloa Black Sand Beach at Wai'anapanapa State Park and decided to check it out. And I am so glad we did. It was absolutely gorgeous! The plants were so green and the rock structures were so black.
Sansei and it was delicious! We were so exhausted we forgot to take dinner pictures before so we took them after dinner and this is what we got:
So our final picture was of us cracking up. We were delirious, haha! Unfortunately we didn't buy the shirt that says, "I survived the Road to Hana" and now I'm kicking myself for not getting it! Oh well, I guess that just means I'll have to go back! :)
