Day 9

Thursday dawned with blue skies and sunshine so definitely was going to be a beach day.  We decided first to go to Napili Bay.  We were able to snag the last space on the road by Napili Shores...only 9:30 and you could tell that everyone was anxious to get back out and enjoy some sunshine. It was very busy. I have to say it's certainly a gorgeous beach

We claimed a patch of sand near the seahouse and started snorkelling...clarity wasn't very good so gave up after a bit.  We headed back to the car and decided to head north up the coast.   We stopped at the look out over Honolua Bay and watched the surfers for a while                                                                                                          

You can't see them very well in the pictures but we counted 58 surfers!
 We stopped at the carvers stand near the entrance to the path down to the bay where we found a Honu carving we really was a little too pricey for us and would have been tricky getting home so we passed. He had some lovely pieces though.  Our next stop was Molule'ia Bay (Slaughterhouse Beach).  Another beautiful spot.

We stopped again at a spot ooverlooking D.T.Fleming beach park where someone was nice enough to offer to take our picture

We then headed home to spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying the sunshine from our little beach and the lanai.  We watched Honu and whales and just soaked up our last full day.  We have really enjoyed the Kuleana and will definitely recommend it as a lovely quiet place to stay...time to start packing as tonight we fly out at midnight.  Don't know where the road will take us yet....maybe upcountry maybe Haleakala...I'll sign off today with a final peek at the view from our lanai....
