Jim, Jim’s friend Ricky, and I just got back from a place on the eastern coast of Maui called Hana. It is a little town with a general store in the heart of the jungle right next to the ocean. Absolutely incredible. In order to get there from Haiku you have to drive down the Hana Highway, a famed road known for its extreme curves and views of the ocean. It took about an hour to get there, even though we only went like 30 miles. Once there we went snorkeling and jet skiing at Hana Bay with our friend Alfredo, some of the best snorkeling I’ve ever seen. We climbed up on all sorts of rocks and got some great pictures. After that we went to Red Sand Beach, a little cove like place that you have to walk down a long dirt trail to get to. More climbing up rocks and jumping off high cliffs. At Red Sand we jumped off a 15 foot cliff then climbed up this rock wall and jumped backwards from like 30 feet up. Insane. After that we went to Koki Beach, the most perfect beach in the world. The sand was so soft and it stayed at about waist level for like 60 or 70 feet out. The waves were the perfect size for boogie boarding and they came about one every 5 seconds. Incredible beach. That was yesterday, our first day. We slept at a friends house in Hana and woke up this morning for another day. Today we went to the Venus Pools, a beautiful tide pool where we jumped off another 30 something foot high rock. After that we hiked to the bamboo forest, stopping a couple times to swim and jump off things. At the end of the trail there was a gigantic waterfall, someone said like almost 300 feet. I was in awe. After the bamboo forest we packed up our stuff and headed back the Hana Highway for Haiku. A fabolous two day adventure and break from work, but now its back to model making and designing additions. Hope you like the pictures.
