We're back from Maui...  
...VERY tired, a few pounds heavier (Mark's idea of a good vacation was a constant eating one...), and with LOTS of photos! :)

I would write more, but I think the photos tell the story of our trip pretty well. :)

The first place we hit was the Maui Mall to get some guri-guri sherbet!

A close-up of the goodness! :)

Next we headed to Lahaina and visited Whaler's Village.
And here's Mark who missed "talk like a pirate day" by a few. ;)

We took photos next to the famous Sugar Cane train in Lahaina.
Did we actually ride it? No... :P

We loved staying at the Maui Prince Hotel!!
And yes, only the Fujimotos would take pictures near the hotel's sign. :)

Here we are on the grounds of the hotel getting ready to leave for dinner.

Look at the gorgeous view we had as we ate at the breakfast buffet!! :)

I had strawberries & waffles covered with macadamia nuts, chocolate chips, and syrup - YUMM!!

We also had breakfast entertainment - in the form of a curious bird trying to catch his breakfast.

It was quite amazing to watch him scoop up and catch a tiny fish from the pond...

...and then complete his breakfast...

Before heading to the airport we needed to stop off at Home Maid Bakery
to get some manju omiyage for the folks back home. :)
Our favorites: peanut butter, apple, and white bean. :)

We were disappointed that we missed their "malasada" hours, but were
happy that there were still some great manju left. :)

Hope you all have a lovely week!! HUGS!

Those are some great pictures. If you were at Whalers Village, you were right near our timeshare, which is in the Whaler. If you had been there a few weeks earlier, you could have met Karen's folks (who were staying there this year).

Wow - I remember you mentioning your timeshare in Maui, but I didn't know where it was. When do you get to stay there next?

There are two questions there: When, and do you.

When is easy. We're always the last two weeks of August (interval R).

Do you is harder. With school starting earlier and earlier these days, it is harder for us to go. Right now, my in-laws have been using the unit; they were there the last 2 years and they'll be back in 2008.

awwwww vacations - one word 'jealous'.

Ya know one of your photos made me think of what I found the other day and had to post; http://carush-girl.livejournal.com/545157.html

I remember you posting that picture!! :) Now, I'd never be able to get anywhere near a perfect a shot as that, but it was interesting to see the bird catch (and then eat - YIKES!) the little fish!

:) Oh no, Joe and I would take a picture by the hotel sign. Heehee!

I love the pictures! You two looked so relaxed and happy!

YAY!! It's good to know we aren't the only ones who would do that! :D It was a lot of fun and at first, Mark didn't want to do it, but then he was like, "Take one with MY camera!!" :) Haha!
ajayne on September 25th, 2007 02:50 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha! You two are a lot like us.

You're so sweet, Sue! The food was just too good in Maui!! I can't live there - I'd gain too much weight! ;)

Looks like you & Mark had an awesome time in Maui! :) That strawberry waffle looks delicious!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on September 25th, 2007 07:05 am (UTC)
We had a great time! :) And the waffles were so good that I had to go back for seconds! :D

Great pictures! I like to read and see your adventures. Who took all of those pictures? Or did you bring a tripod and use a timer?
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on September 25th, 2007 07:07 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comment!! :) And most of the pictures were either taken self-portrait style, on benches and tree stumps (whatever was nearby - the one of the hotel sign, the camera was on the ground!) with a timer. :) The ones at Home Maid Bakery were taken with the camera on the car for the first one - and someone was nice enough to take the second one. :)

Truly, that is a trip that defies description, save that it is clear you had a wonderful time.
