We spent Christmas 2015 in Maui, HI. It was a magical, relaxing week.
Maui: we were staying in Wailea
The first day we went on a tour of the Road to Hana, then spent most of the rest of the week at the beach and watching sunsets. Below are my top ten photographs of the trip.
Even flying into Maui was spectacular.
This cove on the Road to Hana was on the eastern side of the island. Massive waves rolled in from the Pacific and crashed through blowholes in the rock.
On the Road to Hana waterfalls proved to be popular attractions.
Well past Hana at this point, the volcanic nature of the landscape becomes obvious.
The scenery was beyond breathtaking all the way around the island.
Back near Wailea, we spent a couple of mornings at Big Beach.
We watched the sunset each night. Never did see a green flash though.
A colorful gecko came to say hello Christmas morning.
An evening walk was the perfect way to end Christmas Day.
