Hmmmm trying to get him to vacation is a challenge.
Making the trek back to the car with chairs on our backs, wet towels in our bags, the sun was beating down on us. It was time to try Big Beach which would be a first for me. The sand is wonderfully fine, and the ocean was the most brilliant shades of blue and green. Waves were crashing onto the shore and we were unsure how we would go about getting in the water without being sent sprawling on the sand.
We have been using the book Maui Revealed, and looked up good places to eat on the south side of Maui. We agreed on one, that was on Kihei Road, and proceeded in that direction. None of us have ever stayed in Kihei, and although the restaurant wasn't far from where we were, the traveling was slow. So many cars. It was as crazy crowded as when we went to the Whale Festival! Bit by bit we creeped up the road and finally found the restaurant, Pupuu Lounge and Grill.
Gary expressed his concern that we were the only people in the restaurant, and several other places nearby had diners in it. Still we worked our way in to find someone to seat us. The menu looked good, and the waiter was very friendly. Within fifteen minutes, the place was full, we were feeling pretty smart that we timed it like we did.
Susie and I chose a pupuu punch to start with, the waiter assured us it was really delicious, and after consuming a quarter of it, we were both PUNCHED! Wow, the bartender really didn't skimp on the liquor in this drink! Finally our meal arrived, the ladies all ordered a fish we had never heard of or tried Walu, which has risen to the top as our new favorite fish. Very white, very buttery tasting and was grilled to perfection. Gary tried the ceviche which was fabulous as well. Wayne reported his hamburger was good, but he's happy with a burger wherever he goes.
We made it back to the house, so tired, but happy. Cleaning our gear, rinsing our suits and shirts then collapsing in a chair. Most of us were reading on the deck, watching whales, a couple of blenders, too full for dinner, and we were all in bed by nine o'clock. The sun and swimming really took it out of us!
