protea flowerMount Haleakala Science Lab We had planned on going up to the Mount Haleakala for the sunrise, which meant getting up at 4 am and driving 2 hours to reach the summit. After an unanimous vote, we decided to stay close and visit Ulua beach and Kihei Beaches to try out some snorkeling and boogie boarding. We also stopped at the Farmers Market for fresh fruit and banana bread

Ulua Beach

Kamaole Beach south mauiOur first stop was Ulua beach located in the Wailea area south of Kihei. We got there early (7 am) so there was close parking and a good shady spot on the beach. Cameron's first attempt was good. There were plenty of fish close to the shore. Slide Show
