Anyway, we had an incredible time! Our friends who were getting married arranged for a sunset sail for all wedding guests in lieu of a rehearsal dinner. Did you know that February is high whale season in Maui? We saw SO MANY humpback whales, including a couple babies. It was incredible. The next day was the wedding, which was equally gorgeous. And right after the ceremony, there were whales just off the coast that were jumping around and slapping their tales and whatnot. Everything was just perfect. Anyway, I don't have a ton of photos of just Maui. Almost all of the photos are selfies, or pics of people. Sorry man, it's what I was interested in.
First batch of photos are from our first full day. Our friends went to Honolulu to see Pearl Harbor, so Craig and I spent the day walking 11 miles and learning about the public transit system in West Maui. I also got huge blisters on one of my feet and learned that the single pair of flipflops that I had brought were not great for walking long distances in. I ended up buying a pair of flipflops made from yoga mats. They're not great looking, but they are incredibly comfortable.

We ended up catching a bus all the way up towards the north end of the island to Napili bay where our friends who got married were staying, and managed to go to this mai tai party where we pretended to be resort guests for free drinks. It worked. The sunset was pretty beautiful.
|Soooo happy to have finally made it to Maui! We had a great day!|
|Miraculously, Craig actually let me get a photo of him, which he pretty much never does.|
|Craig looked so handsome and nautical. I love this photo of him!|
The next few days consisted of a couple beach trips, day drinking, coffee plantation tour, distillery tour, and goat dairy tour. We had a lot of fun at all of them.
|It's probably a good thing that we can't have goats at our house per city ordinances. We both want some. They're so stinkin' cute!|
|I am pretty much the goat whisperer. They all love me.|
|These were our carryon snacks! They sell musubi at all of the convenience stores that carry food.|
