MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JULY 22–28, 2019! PART 2

This is part 2 of the week in Maui. We rented scooters to explore Kihei, visited a goat farm (and milked goats), a beach day with the whole family, and a hike amongst lava rocks.

Enjoy!

Part 1 is here, we explore Lahaina, Haleakala, and Iao Valley.

And the week continues!

WEDNESDAY: Snorkeling at Ulua Beach, Scooter Rentals, and Surfing Goat Dairy

Starting the morning with some fresh cut papaya at the rental.

We had breakfast then got ready to journey down the coast a bit to another beach in Kihei where we heard the snorkeling was much better.

Untitled
This was probably around 8 am, the water was perfectly blue and warm.

Got my water shoes on let’s go

Hot.

A few hours later we were done snorkeling and look how crowded the rest of the beach got! Snorkeling was truly so fun, we saw so many turtles.

Played in the sand with the builder and the destroyer of sand castles.

Zach and I decided to rent scooters from a nearby place, best decision!

We rode the bikes along the coast in Kihei and came across a food truck, we decided to stop for lunch.

If you are ever in Kihei, I highly recommend renting a scooter. It was so fun, I wish we had beach gear with us because there were so many places to stop and relax.

It was our night to cook dinner, so we prepped all our chili (with help) and got it on the stove before the family left the rental.

We all headed to Surfing Goat Dairy, a goat farm in the mountains of Kula where we could sign up to milk goats.

We all milked some goats.

Sorry for so many goat pics (not sorry)

After the tour we sampled a bunch of the goat farm’s cheeses in all kinds of flavors.

I think I was the “cool auntie” for renting the scooter. All the kids really were dying to ride it for real.

THURSDAY: Ulua Beach, Spam Musubi, Hoapili Trail

Untitled
Good morning! It’s Thursday.

It was our last full day with the whole family and we finally all made it to the beach together. We went back to Ulua Beach again, and got some snorkeling in.

I remembered to bring my underwater disposable camera! I actually got a photo of a honu up close, and it is in focus! So proud

My parents aren’t really beach people, can you tell?

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
A truly great morning with the fam.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
More Ululani’s, this time I got Pickled Mango, Thai Iced Tea, and Melona with Li Hing Mui drizzled on top. SoooOoOoOOo good.

Untitled
Nabbed a musubi next door.

Picked up a bunch of food from the local market and had a true feast back at the retreat

We took my dad on the King’s Highway aka the Hoapili Trail.

Untitled

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled

We picked the perfect afternoon to do this hike since it is all outdoors and pretty much unprotected from the sun. But the path is made of lava rocks, and was once a Hawaiian walking path reserved for royalty only.

Untitled
Untitled
So many cool lava rock formations (yes, light rain!)

Untitled

Such a cool landscape

Passed a tiny feral kitten in a tree

Snuck my cousin Keri out to get Ululani’s shave ice because she hasn’t had any shave ice all week! Her reward.
