Hawaii–Day 10

Well, if we thought the road up to the top of Mt. Haleakala was a challenge, we had no idea what we were in for when we headed out this morning!

Another cooler day, and we decided to drive around West Maui to Kaanapali.  After a couple of stops to admire views, and watch wind surfers:

we had a leisurely lunch, then decided to see what the rest of the road had to offer.  We knew that it narrowed to a one-lane road at some point, and had full intentions of turning around when we got to that point.  But….we came upon the single lane without notice, and nowhere to turn around…..so forward we went.  There were frequent pullouts, and everybody managed to get past each other without too much difficulty for the most part.  But we were hanging onto our door handles for dear life in a few spots!!!  I know a few people who would not have enjoyed this day at all.

Then we turned a corner:

And there was Kahakuloa – a charming little village, in the middle of apparently no-where!

We could have turned around, but figured we were better than half-way down this ‘cow-path’ so we forged ahead……………..and found art galleries!

It seemed incredible that artists could actually make a living way out here!  Shortly thereafter, we found a ‘civilized’ road, and were so happy to kick back and relax at the condo!

Happy driving tours!    Blessings, Peg
