Maui, Hawaii

Arrived in Maui the afternoon of the fourth, guess I have been on Island Time.  We took the road to Hana on the fifth, and enjoyed the lush tropical vegetation with waterfalls along the way.  We stopped and hiked to Twin Falls where we saw Palm trees, banana trees, and many beautiful flowers along the way.  Tuesday we visited Kilea Ponds and walked the boardwalk and swam in the Pacific Ocean.  Yesterday we visited Kilea Ponds National Wildlife Refuge where we saw the Hawaiian Stilt and the Hawaiian coot along with shorebirds, herons and egrets.  In the afternoon we visited the Maleea Harbor and the Maui Ocean Center there.  Wonderful exhibits with brightly colored reef fish, green sea turtles etc.  Today we took the Four Winds to Molokini Crater where we snorkeled and saw the fish in their natural habitat.  We also saw the Great Frigatebirds that feed on the Shearwater chicks nesting on the other side of the Sanctuary.  Saw Green Sea Turtles in the ocean on the way back to the Bay.
