It’s Raining, But Who Cares? We’re In Maui


Not our earliest start, the overnight in San Francisco took a bit of the edge off.

It rained all night, it’s raining now; it’s a relaxing day in Paradise.

It was snowing when we left Chicago, and currently it’s 27 degrees there. More snow expected this week. I’ll take the rain, thanks.

The flight was delayed more than an hour, not bad once we got in the air. We arrived at the hotel via shuttle, and will stay in SFO again on our way back to avoid that deadly overnight flight. The flight to Maui pushed back on time, and I was closer than David on the Halfway to Hawaii game (although he helped with my calculations, he cheated and used his GPS).

One quibble; for such a long, full flight, United should offer a meal. We passed on the paid snacks and after getting the car, stopped for lunch at Beach Bums in Maalaea. Yummy calamari sandwich, never had such tender thick chunks of it before.

Good thing, too, because the traffic crawled slowly, for no visible reason, through Kahului and around the two-lane part of the Pali. Next time, we’ll turn on the Hana Highway, avoid Dairy Road, and cut through town.
