Our condo is on the southwest side of the island, which means we watch gorgeous sunsets every night. The one above was taken at Kam III Beach, which is a favorite place for us to walk down for sunset pictures.
Like this one . . .
And this one.
For about a half hour after sunset, this is our view of Ken.
Our son has his own way of enjoying Maui sunsets.
The funny thing about an island sunset is that even the water senses it is time to quiet down, relax, and say goodnight. And Maui sunsets epitomize everything that makes Maui my personal prescription for combating stress. Aloha Sun. Until tomorrow...
Are you like me and are a little skeptical of a vacation in Hawaii in the dead of winter? I mean, how warm could it possibly be in January?! Well, we just got back from a quick trip to Maui and Maui in January is FABULOUS!
Yup. That sun and sky look pretty much like they do in March, May, July, October, and November. And the temperature over our four-day stay ranged from 80-83 degrees, which is pretty much what it is every other time of year. It was a little cooler at night, which made for a little less bed covers-kicking while sleeping.
January does bring out a more seasoned sunset-watching crowd (as in, these vacationers know when to carry their chairs out for the full sunset spectacle) across the street at Kam III Beach Park. We took time out from work on our last evening to take our beach chairs down to the grassy area of Kam III and celebrate the Maui sunset with fellow sunset revelers. One reason I love Maui Kamaole so much is its perfect location across the street from this beautiful park.
So, you may be wondering what work brought us to Maui in January.
That would be this new large flat screen tv that Ken said was a necessity for any man to fully enjoy a vacation. I have to say. I like his thinking on this.
Of course, we weren't just there to buy a tv. This was our first trip to the condo since purchasing it, so we came to give it a good inspection, repair anything that needed repairing, and replace anything that needed replacing. There's something about having a gorgeous view of the ocean right in front of you while you are doing housework that makes housework not so bad!
We did manage to leave the condo long enough for the one thing I could not possibly leave Maui without...
And yes, it is just as good in January as any other time of year!
