The whales were ready to entertain us, and we saw several breaches, and so many spouts. Guess they were just waking up as we were sipping the coffee that the Gazebo puts out to ease your wait.
We were in line with some lovely folks from Texas. Turns out her name is Tutu, too. She offered to take a family shot, and visiting with them made the time fly by.
Breakfast did not disappoint. Hubs and I had the benedict. Daughter did the pancakes and was unable to finish them. Son-in-law tried the breakfast burrito, #1 had Mickey Mouse pancakes, and baby boy ate whatever was put in front of him! I think we all savored the scrumptious treats.
The gazebo went all out for the birthday, and gave Lucy a singing menu, and when her pancakes arrived, there was a party hat candle, and a whirligig. So festive! A box of orchids named Lucy's orchids were pointed out and it was the perfect start to our day.
|ringing the bell when you spot a whale kept #1 busy and happy|
|While we were inside dining, there was a cloud burst. Poor people waiting in line. Umbrellas were given out, and it didn't last long. The sun reappeared and when we were finished eating had a pleasant stroll back to the car.|
|pink sky and below was whale soup!|
|Yes, we are that family! Ha ha...she was so surprised when she came downstairs to find us all in matching tshirts. It was fun.|
|A perfect last day. Sunshine, whales breaching, turtles, rainbows, and spinner dolphins. I don't think we could have asked for anything more.|
|Beverages at a place Lucy wanted us to try. Quite tasty.|
|Pupu's at Cheeseburger in Paradise. Marking things off the list. This was the son-in-law's first trip to Maui.|
|The boys having beers. #1's was rootbeer of course. :-) Everyone else was off shopping Front Street|
|Baby boy had fun with a puddle|
|Last night to blow the shell|
|Our final Hawaiian sunset. This will have to hold me, until the next one.|
