After reading about a discounted Molokini tour and show package, we agreed to a notorious timeshare presentation. | In spite of a free lunch and the moves of a greasy Satan-like salesman, we were able to resist and escaped unscathed. We then went tidepooling and had some snorkeling practice at Kapalua Bay. Before seeing the Ulalena show on Hawaii's history, we had a delicious dinner of seafood risotto, butterfish, and lava cakes at the legendary Roy's.

63: DAY 5 In the morning we headed out for our boat trip to "Turtle Town" and the cresecent-shaped crater island, Molokini. Swimming with the bold znd friendly turtles, they came so close I had to swim backwards to not touch them. The deep waters surrounding Molokini were a bit rough but amazingly clear. On the ride back, we laid on the boat's trampolines, suspended above the water. It was both thrilling and aching to be bounced over the crashing waves.

64: From the top of the water's surface, you can see Molokini Island and the backs of our new friends.

The yummy dishes included a duck dumpling consume with homemade kimche, seared scallops in rice rolls, the "Bling Bling" - lobster filet and roasted potatoes, and a melontini to top it off. As our dinner was ending, the sound of fireworks called us outside, where we sat in the sand and watched the lights and stars above us.
