The calm after the storm

This group was anything but rested after the storm that kept us awake for an hour or more during the night.  The weather report was for flash floods, and things didn't look good to the south, so staying close was on the docket.

The ladies took a nice beach walk, collecting small shells, sea glass, and tiny little pieces of coral.  Also we took it upon ourselves to do a beach clean up picking up broken glass and garbage that we found.

The weather was gorgeous..so hard to believe that it had been so ugly a few hours before.
There was a Princess Cruise ship sitting in the water in front of Lahaina.  Not too sure how this would impact the little town of Lahaina, we still decided to do a day in town. Being so close to town, it's an easy stroll to the shops.  In and out, visiting all the places and mostly just shopping, but not really buying.  We all met up at the Cool Cat, an upstairs establishment that overlooks the south end of Front Street.  Fresh Ahi tacos, a couple of mud slides, and the day was shaping up beautifully!

Strolling back to the house, watching our whales, reading, and seeing the cruise ship leave town were all the excitement this house could handle. 

After a week, we finally got a gorgeous sunset.  Well worth the wait.  Tomorrow we will try our big snorkel trip again, and hope that the weather cooperates.

Yikes! How did I miss a day? Must've been busy working yesterday--sorry about that! That last photo looks like a painting! Hope you had another fun snorkling day--the fish are so beautiful!
