S: Maui Vacation 2011
1: Our Maui Vacation with the Parks Family. The day school let out we busted out of Reno and landed in Hawaii by noon. We rented a house in Wailea, it was Perfect! The kids loved the hot tub, we enjoyed the relaxation of the patio daily.
2: Our first day in Maui we took surfing lessons from Goofy Foot. The boys were natural surfers. Hang Ten Dude!
4: We enjoyed lunch, Mai Tai's, crab sandwiches and hula pie at Kimo's in Lahaina.
5: I hear the waves, sun beatin' down on my shoulders | A near perfect day, wishing I wouldn't get any older | They say, that it's gone before you know it now | Quit your mind..Soak it all in, it's a game you can't win, Enjoy the ride...

11: The world is a book and those that do not travel read only a page
12: I have wandered all my life, and I have also traveled; the difference between the two being this - that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment. Hilaire Belloc
13: We set off for a day of hiking and after some time wandering the hills we found the trail to the 3 waterfalls. We went thru a bamboo forest, boulder scrambled, jumped and swam murky waters all in an effort to find adventure!
14: Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind. Seneca
19: Smell the flowers, drink the wild air, follow the ocean breeze, bask in the setting sun. Maui reminds us of what is important in life
21: What an exciting day rafting. We swam with turtles and dolphins. We were also fortunate enough to find a whale shark, Noni captured the moment on film for us.
24: At the end of the water the red sun is rising, and the stars are all going away, If you're too busy talking, you're not busy listening , to hear what the land has to say... Quiet your Mind
25: We got up at 3am to start our last day adventure. We were the first people to see the sunrise.
27: The best possible traveling advice would be this: Bring a friend!
28: The soothing, rolling Pacific waves Add tranquility to the moments As one turns inward, Forgetting worldly events Becoming lost in nothingness. Time returns. My soul's refreshed, Wishing that more barefooted moments Existed in life.
