maui revealed, day 6

Sunday, our last full day in Maui, was filled with church, food, friends, and even some beach action. Rob and I wanted to really bask in God's beautiful creation while we were in Maui, so we hit up Calvary Chapel Westside in Lahaina. They have a weekly service on a lawn overlooking the ocean. It was a wonderful service with great contemporary music and a meaningful message. Nothing beats listening to God's words while enjoying all He created.

Is this not the raddest Sunday School for kids? A little hut overlooking the ocean. So cool!

After church, we met up with Jenny and Victor and ate brunch at the Plantation House in Kapalua. We originally had dinner plans but we heard the views are more spectacular during the day. The food was great and the view was awesome. Definitely glad we dined during the day to really enjoy the views. We didn't have an opportunity to spend time with Victor on Friday during lunch since he was working, so it was great to catch up with him finally.

Before heading to the beach, Jenny and Victor took us to see the grounds at the newly renovated Ritz-Carlton. I guess they had to renovate because dead bodies were found buried underground. Kinda creepy. But if someone required me to stay at a luxury resort while in Maui, I guess this one would do...but actually, with the dead bodies and all, maybe not...


Finally, it was beach time. Still a little windy, but we weren't going to let that get in our way. Rob and I finally did some snorkeling too, thanks to Victor for hooking us up with some gear.

Jenny and I were kind of picture happy
And because we wanted to look like uber-tourists, we took this pic...
Linda joined us for dinner at Hula Grill, where we dipped our toes in sand while enjoying some incredibly delicious food. Again, the company was priceless.

I like to call these two Salt & Peppa


It was sad and exhausting driving back to our little cottage, knowing it was our last night in beautiful Maui...

my inlaws usually go to a little catholic church up around kapalua when they're on maui and they just love it. granted, the views are quite as spectacular as the calvary church, but i guess they love the vibe anyways.

hula grill is one of our favorite lunch spots when we stay in ka'anapali, not only for the food, but also for the sand you get to sit in ;)

isn't it just so sad though when a vacation is coming to a close?

How cool is it that you got to hang out with your friends twice after so much time apart? Pretty cool I say.
