Reporting from Maui: Day 6

A combination of feisty, ever-changing weather and something that disturbed our stomachs, laid us low for more than 24 hours. We all sprang back into under-the-ocean mode this morning. We took the long and very pleasant coastal drive up to Honalua Bay:

To get there you somehow figure out how to find a parking spot, and then take a short trek through a rainforest, then arrive at this beautiful fish preserve, protected from the ocean’s waves. Then you navigate round rocks, somehow get your snorkel gear on and jump in. Warm and delicious, with many fish to spy on:

I did see a Humuhumunukunukuapua above. (google images)

Here’s what we look like, above. (google images)

I saw one of these. (google images)

Then we took off to Kapalua Bay:

All beaches in Hawaii must have public beach access. This one is located in front of a luxury resort.

Here are some fish I saw:

kapalua trigger fish

Orange trigger fish. (google images)

 

 

kapalua black fish

 

And this large school of black fish. (google images)

My approach to finding these images has been that I google the actual spot where I am visiting and find photos taken there…so, these should be very accurate.

Now for a dinner at Fred’s Mexican restaurant.

Aloha….
