Before we left our cozy nest for good, we wanted to take a few more pictures. If you're headed to Maui, you should definitely consider staying at this Maui Spa Retreat in Olinda. Ahh...I miss it tremendously already.
This is the entrance
After driving away with tears in my eyes (well, not really, but it left a hole in my heart), we headed to Lahaina for one last lunch with Jenny and Linda at Kimo's. Again, the food was delicious, but come on, anytime you dine right above the water, how bad could it be?
Linda invited us over to her place to share some old photographs with us. I saw photos of my parents when they were just 18 and totally in love. It's was great to see photographs that I've never seen before and while I see the resemblance of my brother and I in my mom and dad today, the resemblance was so incredibly obvious when they were young and free-spirited in the 70s. And boy did we hear some stories...
Maui wanted to grace us with one last memory...a rainbow! Literally, as we were getting ready to hop in the car and drive to the airport, it started to rain and an incredible rainbow appeared.
It was a beautiful way to say good-bye to great friends and a breathtaking city.
Our airport experience was terrible. I'll just leave it at that...
The fantastic news: Jenny and Victor are coming to San Diego in April for a wedding and they are going to stop by Long Beach. We can't wait to take them to Sushi Studio and Yogurtland!
