Our Last Days in Maui

The last three days in Maui were really bitter sweet.  Mostly sweet.  We were having so much fun.  I didn't want it to end.



Friday we hit the beach and spent most of the day there.  Later on it was time for the spa day strategically planned after Road to Hana.  We did a couples massage and facial and it felt really good.  Then we went out to dinner at Hula Grill Kaanapali.  It was the only night we went "out" out to dinner and the only night I actually got "dressed."  Still no make up though!!

My cutie!!!
For a change of scenery we decided to check out a new beach on Saturday.  We went to Kapalua Bay which was just a few miles away.   It's the beach for the Ritz Carlton.  I'm not sure I've ever been that close to a Ritz Carlton.   We liked this one better then Ka'anapali.  The sand was a lot finer and softer and there were less rocks.  The waves were so powerful that they knocked my bikini bottoms off.  Really.  I kept having to pull them up.  Mj had fun swimming the waves but the water was too turbulent for snorkeling.



After we spent a few hours at Kapalua we went to the beach again at Ka'anapali.  I know.  Such a hard life traveling from beach to beach.  We got a bottle of Dom Perignon as a wedding gift 3 years ago.  Like everything else, I hoard champagne too.  Especially really expensive champagne.  There never seemed to be a moment perfect enough to drink it.  Until Now.  Mj went to our room to get it while I scoped out a lawn chair.  He brought back the bottle of champagne and a platter of the cheese, meat and grapes that we'd picked up at the grocery store.   We sat there on the beach and drank a whole bottle of Dom together while we gazed out at that perfect view.  Seriously.  It just doesn't get much better then that.  We stayed out there until the sun set. That night we gave the pizza downstairs another chance.  We ordered a cheese Pizza for dinner and it was delicious.  I think the Pizza we had on the first day just wasn't fresh.  We sat down in the outdoor bar area and listened to the live singer who was really, really good.  Then we went upstairs to finish off the movie that we'd fallen asleep on for two nights in a row.  It was a nice way to spend our last night.
Last sunset
Sunday was our last day.  We checked out, took our luggage to the car, walked to Slappy Cakes for breakfast and then spent the rest of the day at the beach.  MJ rented us the mini cabana again and we stayed until the last moment possible.  Talk about milking every last second we could.  We were able to see one last sunset before we had to go.  I was really glad they had showers and changing rooms available so we could spend our last day at the beach.  We got our stuff and showered.  Then we hit the road for the airport for our overnight flight.  Which sucked as most overnight flights do!!  I didn't even realize I had picked an overnight flight but I'm glad I did.  I liked it that we didn't have to leave Maui in the middle of a perfect beach day.  We got to enjoy every last second of it and then leave.

We drank wine on the beach every single day and the one day that we didn't was spent chasing waterfalls.   We went zip-lining for the first time and had some awesome spa time.  I love it that we got to basically spend every single minute together for an entire week.   The only time I didn't see him was when he was using the toilet!!  We had such a good time.  I couldn't have asked for anything more from this vacation and I'm already looking forward to the next.

Well this sounds amazing. Like the perfect vacation! I love that y'all just spent time together drinking wine and watching the sunset. SO romantic! Is Dom Perignon better tasting than other champagnes? I always buy the $8 bottles of champagne lol.
