Trip to Maui Day 8

The great weather just keeps on coming!

Scott K woke up early and snapped some sweet shots of sand crabs (enjoy the pics below). Every day thus far I (Micah) have been using the Vitamix I brought with to make smoothies and (virgin) pina coladas! This morning was no different! Yum! This time I threw in some spinach and tomato along with the normal pineapples, coconuts, and bananas.

Later in the afternoon (because most of the family likes to sleep in), we took the drive to the Haleakala National Park and crater. The drive up was exciting, but the thick clouds prevented us from seeing some of the views. We also drove to the Science City area of the mountain and got a few more views that few others get to see! I plan to come back again early in the morning next week to see the sunrise, as I hear the sight is amazing.

We took a scenic drive in the Makawao area afterwards, looking for a coffee shop that turned out to be an organic coffee FARM that was closed! I plan to call this family next week to see if I can visit!

We then went to a place called Cafe O'lei of the Dunes which was a fantastic restaurant on a golf course with excellent food, affordable prices, and an amazing view of the sunset over the mountains. I highly recommend this place! Thanks to Scott K for finding this place! I plan to take Lauren back here next week for a date-night. (Lauren took the day off to chill back at the condo.)

I'm pow for now! Enjoy the pics below!
