A Trip Ashore to Maui, Shopping and Dining

September 24 Lahaina, Maui

An early morning start, awakened to a bright sun and a hot day anchored just off the coast of Lahaina, Maui.

What a beautiful place to spend the day! We had a light, healthy breakfast then took a tender to shore. We walked along the port street, strolled through the shops, found a bathing suit I couldn’t live without and enjoyed the morning. Beautiful views from the shore.

We stopped in to a shore-side restaurant “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and shared a cheeseburger salad, quite yummy. Who knew you could add a cheeseburger patty, pickles, shredded cheese, to a salad and love it! I might have had an adult beverage, from a local craft brewery. Quite good!

Took the tender back to the ship, seas were a little choppy and it was very humid, water dripping from faces!

Back on the ship we went straight to the pool for a refreshing dip, oh so wonderful. Relaxed around the pool for a couple of hours, nice! It’s an older crowd so people-watching was fun!

With our Elite status we have access to the ‘Persian Garden’ where we can relax in heated tile beds, with a view of the seas. And a steam room, dry sauna and private showers. So relaxing after a hectic day of shopping.

Back in the room we sat on the balcony, enjoyed our view and then cleaned up for dinner in the Blu Restaurant. Dinner was delicious.

And then we listened to some music in a lounge, and then retired to the suite. We laughed our faces off when we walked into our suite. Sharon’s bed was set up with the little stuffie BUZZ who is traveling with us from her grand daughter CeCe. My bed was made up cute with my teethe retainer and my carpel tunnel hand brace. We laughed so hard we almost peed our pants. So funny!! Guess you had to be there to appreciate the humor!!

More to come...Carol on the go!
