After some time wandering the paths we headed south. Drove all the way to La Perouse Bay ...driving through the lava fields reminded us of the drive north from the Kona airport on the big island...desolate but still beautiful. La Perouse Bay feels like the tip of the world
After that we stopped at Big Beach. They've got lifeguard stations there now which was a new addition from our trip several years ago. It's a beautiul beach that every visitor to Maui should see
We fought the traffic into Paia where we bought a couple of last minute souvenirs. We were going to eat there but all the restaurants were just too busy so we headed into Kahului. We had dinner at a ramen house in the Maui Mall which was really good then we gassed up and returned the car to Enterprise and headed to the airport. Security lines were long but very efficient. Flight to Portland was smooth and we slept the whole way. We caught our connecting flight to Seattle where we are right now waiting for the last leg of our trip home. All in all a fantastic Maui vacation! Aloha!
