Day 6

We woke up to wind and rain this morning.  I still walked down to the water to watch the surf and look for whales and turtles.  Nothing this early except for these guys...

Two of them were on SUP's and one on a surfboard.  We can watch locals playing in the waves for hours, it's so entertaining and it has been a silver lining to this somewhat stomy weather. Over coffee we decide that today we'd go to The Ocean Center and even though we had decided not to rent golf clubs in Kihei because of the traffic, we might as well go there now too seeing as we would be in the area and because Wednesday's tee time was at the Elleair, returning would be easy.   Off we head to Maalaea and the Ocean Center....there was a slight hiccup to our plan though...EVERYONE on Maui had the same idea...

It took about 5 seconds for us to decide that there was nothing on earth that could induce us to be shoulder to shoulder inside with that mob.  We continue on to Kihei to the Maui Golf Shop in Longs center and pick out clubs.  59 dollars each and we have them until Wednesday afternoon.  Thats a  substantial savings over renting them at the courses. We drive to Elleair just to make sure we know where we going as our tee time is 6:52 am on Wednesday.  By this time it's time for some lunch...and I have been on Maui for a week and still haven't had a fish taco.  Coconuts it is...soooo good...seafood chowder and fish tacos... what could be better?  I'm all for driving into Wailea but Kelly's back is getting sore again so we head back to the condo.  Spent the afternoon on the Lanai watching whales and reading.  Had dinner in again and relaxed with bloody marys and The Following on tv. As I'm finishing writing this it's gotten fully light outside and I see patches of blue sky peeking through the clouds...golf in four hours!
