MAUI 2015: Day 7

Day 7 was our last day on the island and it's always a bit hard to say goodbye.

Brian and I have a bit of a routine that we like to stick to...kind of a way to "say goodbye to Maui".

We took a quick walk up to the Kapalua airport, which looks down upon our home base while in Maui, Kahana.  It was a beautiful morning, but warm and the VOG was still hanging around until the trades kick back up again.

At 9:30 we left the condo and headed for Lahaina Town.  For the past few visits, our last meal on the island (and historically our first stop on the island) is at Lahania Coolers.  A big thanks to Frank, who once again gave me one of the rare and coveted Lahaina Coolers pens as a keepsake.  Breakfast was filling and we had just enough time to pick up some last minute gifts along front street before driving down to Wailea.

It was a beautiful day in Wailea and I wish that we had had a bit more time to explore this area...but you know, there is always one more activity, one more restaurant, one more place to have a drink that you never get to.

Finally, it was time to say Aloha and Mahalo to my parents who are lucky enough to be staying on another 10 days.  Bittersweet to say goodbye to them and Maui on the same day, but they promised to visit our favorite places and enjoy the island in our absence.
