    We always think of Hawaii when we hear these. These dives are one of our favorite Hawaii sounds.

    Here’s a video of the view from our lanai, B305, Maui Schooner.

    On Monday while we were headed up to Lahaina, we just got past the lookout and I turned my head at the perfect time to see a whale breach. We all saw it at the same time because we all went “Ohhhh” at the same time. It wasn’t too far out either so we all had a great view of it.

    We’ll I told my wife we head home tomorrow. Our plane leaves for Molokai at 2pm. We are going to stop at Kaunakakai to go grocery shopping. We should be at the Condo by 3:30.

    I am following along like I am watching a new episode of 'This is Us' -- thankfully, not as much drama. But you do have a way with keeping us following.

    I am following your adventures, Jeff on this post. That fish your wife made was so impressive. My husband liked it, too. Where was the glass blowing class in Lahaina? Also, have you tried Tin Roof en route to Kahului Airport in Maui? It is Sheldon Simeon's place. Lunch only and mobbed with locals every time we have been there. Would love to find out how you purchased the Wave Crest Condo and the logistical challenges to research and find a realtor on Molokai. Thanks.

    We have heard of Tin Roof but we didn’t make it there. It’s tough fitting places in for only a week and we did BBQ some.

    Below is the website for the glass blowing. They have it set up real nice for people to watch while others are making things. They have a nice shady spot.

    I will send you PM when we get to Molokai. I’ll answer any questions about how we ended out purchasing on Molokai. There is also a looong thread on my search back in July when I went on the actual search.

    We made it. Landed at 2:30pm and was shopping for groceries by 3pm. Then we drive straight to the condo and arrived at about 3:30pm.

    She is very happy, she wanted to take pictures and right away she was saying what had to go and what we are replacing. I took a picture of her out on the lanai but it was too dark. I’ll get another tomorrow.

    I brought all the luggage and groceries up while she was taking pictures. It wasn’t really a long day but we were getting tired. So we went back into Kaunakakai and ate at Molokai pizza. I had the Huli Huli checkin and my wife went had the seafood Alfredo with Linguini. Then we brought a pizza home for tomorrow.

    The fish is in a temperary spot in a hutch that we are going to get rid of since we mounted the new tv on the wall. Yes, that’s Jennifer Aniston in Just Go With It on tv. :)

    I'm smiling as I type this. I know your wife already knew what it was like, but it sounds like she's really pleased at your hard work. Good job, Jeff! :)

    We’re making a trip into Kaunakakai to go to the TruValue. It’s open on Sunday. We have to get some light bulbs and a few other things.

    She’s real happy with the improvements we’ve made so far. She said the couch and chair will have to go so we will look at the furniture store this week.

    She loved the shower this morning. Nice and roomy and a nice low step to enter. Plus it wasn’t slippery. She didn’t like the shower head but she brought one of those with and I will install it today.

    It did get cooler here and on Maui. 68 this morning and they are talking a high of 75. Much better than the 52 below windchills back at home. Plus another snowstorm coming in tomorrow with up to a foot of snow. So I’m not complaining.

    We’re just enjoying our new lanai and Lanai furniture. Love the Hawaiian sounds.

    Enjoy the relaxing time. I like that Plumeria tree right off the lanai. What a great view and scent. They bloom all year, but have a heavy bloom twice a year, so you'll likely always have a nice view. :)

    Did your friends stay on Maui?

    Yes, our friends stayed on Maui and went back yesterday evening. They got back early this morning. We’re trying to talk them into two weeks but she has a hard time getting off.

    Here’s a snippet from our plane ride over on Mukulele airlines.

    We just took my wife’s first walk down by the pool and cabana area. We went down to the shore line and sat on the bench for a while while the laundry was finishing up. It’s a little cloudy and breezy today so you may hear the wind hitting the mic.

    One more short one of the view from the lanai. I definitely made the right choice because my wife said the same that I did when I was looking. Once your here you just want to sit back and relax. But now back to reality, we have to go to town.

    First pout on her face since she’s been here. I made her clean off the railing. :)
    I had already replaced some lightbulbs with LED’s, fixed the bedroom door so it closes and locks, replaced the doorknob on the owners storage on the lanai so it locks and replaced the shower head. I had to make her do something.:) She didn’t mind though.

    A little update on the weather here. Snow storm wasn't as bad as predicted. Only about 3 -4 inches so far with maybe another 1 to 3. Hopefully they get the wind chills for Wed & Thur wrong too. Good news, predicted highs for next weekend 39!! So it won't be horrible when you get back, you'll just have to clean off all the snow on your car we've had since you left. Wait a minute, it has snowed a lot since you left. It hadn't hardly snowed at all before you left...coincidence?? No more vacations for you!! o_O (BTW the day we left for our almost two weeks in HI last year we received the biggest snow fall of 2018! We didn't feel bad at all for missing that! :p)

    Fingers crossed it warms up for you. 75 would be a little disappointing.

    I looked at a map to see where your new home is (Kinda on a diagonal from Kaanapali?). Looks like you should be able to see some whales from there! Congrats!

    Yes we are right across the channel. That was another benefit. Sounds like 80 again tomorrow here so that’s fine. My son just messaged me and the got more snow north of you. He’s at 9 inches and it’s still snowing. Those wind chills will be terrible, stay safe!!

    Those return temps sound fine I picked thes dates over a year ago and I couldn’t have done better. :thumbup:
