"Curiosity is the most powerful thing you own, don't put limitations on yourself. Other people will do that for you...failure has to be an option in art and exploration because it's a leap of faith. In whatever you're doing, failure is an option, but fear is not." - James Cameron

When you hear about "The Red Sand Beach" or the "Black Sand Beach", you can't help but wonder what it actually looks like. Well, the sand was a trip. However, the scenery (although it was cloudy) was amazing! I didn't realize the red sand was so coarse and having come from the Hana Lava Tube, I could help but think about the lava tubes that could very well be undiscovered nearby. If you haven't driven the Road to Hana and visited Maui's rural side, you simply have to!

I was never really one to drink dark beers. I'll admit, I was THAT Bud Light drinker and THAT Heineken drinker - the one who stood among the many other Bud Light and Heineken drinkers proudly touting my badge of assimilation in my hand. Recently, I've been trying new beers and just happened to stumbled on the Maui Brewing Company's Coconut Porter. It became the signature beer of the Maui '10 trip (for me at least). We also hit the Maui Flatbread Company for some delicious pizza. Nothing says deeeeeelicious like fresh and local ingredients.

The map said to venture on the north shore road with caution. It did get a little skinny at times and driving around a full size Yukon didn't help in squeezing past traffic but, it was worth it. The north side was beautiful.

I couldn't tell yah what this spot is called but, it was a little gem around the corner from Honolua Bay - beautiful roping left and right sets and looks to be an amazing snorkeling spot as well.

As I was perusing a local owned surf shop in Paia, a fella walked in and told the owners how he had been out at Honolua for 4 hours. It wasn't a big day but, I can definitely see why...

There's really not much to say about Maui that hasn't been said before. It's truly a beautiful place. In all of my consciousness, I can't say I've known where I had been, was, or was going while on Maui and this time, I actually took the time to map out where I was (and it helped to know where I was going as the driver). We drove up north to Honolua Bay and around the corner to Wailuku. The single lane road was definitely an awesome opportunity to really slow down and take a look at the countryside (and make sure we didn't cream anyone head-on =) ). We headed on over to Paia for lunch, continued past to Twin Falls, and decided to head back up to Makawao. From there, we headed back to Napili to just chill. Amazing day...
