We left Minneapolis Saturday am and arrived on Maui at 5 pm. Birds were singing and the sun was shining. I sent hubby to fetch the bags and I sprinted off to collect the car from Budget. I am a "Rapid Rez" customer so the car was waiting. I just signed the paper,showed my drivers license and off I sped. Picked up hubby at the curb with our bags. Then on to the Hyatt where we have splurged on the Regency Club level. What a pleasant surprise awaited us. (Plan to review Hyatt later). Early to bed.
Day One :Up at 2AM for pick up at 2:45 by Temptation Tours Sunrise Haleakala Tour. Had a blast--sunrise unreal. Yikes it was cold. Even for hearty Minnesota souls. After sunrise we had a great breakfast at the Kula Lodge Restaurant. Pancakes to die for.
Day Two-Cabana Day- I lounged in a cabana watching for whales while hubby attended his conference. Dinner was at Hula Grill.
Day Three- Up early again .Walked the beach walkway to Sheraton and back at 5AM. Perfect time for a fast-paced walk. Continental breakfast and then got the fuddy-duddy hubby to actually walk on the beac and get wet. He is not a beachy sort. Went to Lahaina to explore. Very crowded. Much more than I recall fifteen years ago. We finished Lahaina Day with shave ice from Ulalani's. Oh man that was sweet. Great experience all in all.
Day Four-Plans unknown--just hanging out I guess. Tomorrow is Trilogy-Lanai!! Thanks to all of the TA experts for advice
