So we didn’t really do anything yesterday, it was so nice! We got up, got ready, and headed out to Stella Blue’s for breakfast.
It was really tasty, although I don’t think that I really like pancakes anymore. I just couldn’t get into them for some reason. I’m afraid my love of some junk foods, isn’t really based on yumminess, I think it’s based on comfort. Uh-oh!
After breakfast, it was off to Whole Foods Market for groceries. We got lots of delicious things, and then headed home. After unpacking the groceries, we just vegged. It was so nice. Then we went for a relaxing walk around the complex and then onto the beach.
Here is look at the green space at our complex/resort:
The pool area:
The pool area is pretty big with lots of chairs, but the pool itself is a little on the small side considering the amount of people who might jump in at any given time. And this is a very family oriented place with tons of kids, so I was expecting the pool to be a little bigger, or for there to at least be two. But oh well, who needs the pool, when you have the ocean and beach right across the street.
There is the Kihei Surfside, which is where we stayed in November, not very far down the road from where we are now.
This is Kamaole III, it’s the beach right across the street from us. It’s okay, but definitely not as nice as Keawakapu Beach, which is about 5 minutes away, and the beach that we normally go to. Still, it is gorgeous!
We walked to the end of Kamaole III, down to Kamaole II which turned out to be way less rocky and a lot nicer too. I think that is where we will send the boys, but they will more than likely want to head the other direction to Keawakapu as it is by far the nicest beach in our area.
On the way back to the condo, we passed Kamaole Sands’ main entry way and I couldn’t help but take pictures of the beautiful flowers. I wish that we could grow such vibrant coloured flowers at home!
After our walk, we did some more vegging, had a small dinner, and then it was off to an early bedtime! It was very relaxing!
This morning we were more ambitious and started the morning with Yoga. I love yoga, when I do it, because you feel so good afterwards. J has always wanted to try it, as he has been told it would improve his flexibility, and thereby improve his golf game. So I brought a couple yoga DVDs with us, and we did a 30 minute workout first thing this morning. It was tough, and neither of us is nearly as flexible as we would like to be, but we did enjoy the savasana (relaxation) at the end. And we were very proud of ourselves for getting up and exercising!
After yoga, we showered and then did another really healthy thing, drank smoothies! I brought my Vitamix along with us, which was a struggle in itself (my suitcase was bang on 50lbs, so luckily we didn’t have to pay an extra $70 for overweight luggage, stupid Air Canada). I love smoothies and really wanted my amazing blender here, because a) I love smoothies, b) we are away for a month, and c) there are so many wonderful, ripe and delicious fruits for me to put in them, here on Maui. And really there is no other blender once you start using a Vitamix. (If you are at all interested in getting one, I highly recommend it. I have seen them lots of times at Costco, where they do awesome demos. Did you know the vitamix can make hot soup? Check it out! They also carry them at Community Natural Foods.)
Now we are just chillin’. J is working and I am blogging and reading yummy food blogs, and procrastinating about what I really should be doing, and that is working on my course.
Aloha for now!
