Aloha! I'm back... rested, surfed out, full of food and sunburned :-)
Yes, Even us islanders need a break sometimes.....
Two and a half hours from our little West Maui hale is the sleepy community of Hana. I crave this place. Hana is the real Hawaii. And when we really need to unplug this is where we go....
Scenes from the famous Hana Highway....
We stopped for some avocado and bananas...
We stopped at the Keanae Peninsula for just a few minutes....
I love the east side's rocky coast line.
Strip mall in Nihuku.
And we made it to our friend's place right before sundown.
