Woke up this morning to the sounds of the ship docking at the pier in Kahului which in on Maui island.
Rented a Mustang convertible and spent the day on The Road To Hana.
Hana is just a tiny little village on the east side of Maui. The Road to Hana is the most spectacular road I've ever driven! It's only 50 miles from our ship to Hana but there are 620 curves in the road (lots of them hairpin) and there are something like 59 single lane bridges! Elevation changes all the time as you're driving along...from sea level to 1200 feet or more...up and down, around and around. Awesome driving fun!
At Hana there were two interesting sights. A huge lava tube (the biggest in Hawaii and one of the biggest in the world). You self-guide your way through the lava tube with a flashlight. It was one of the most fascinating cave-like structures I've ever been in.
Went to a very unique and secluded "red sand" beach...not really sand at all, but the cinders spewed from a volcano that creates a unique steep cinder-cone around the volcanoe. This sight was thanks to Geocaching.
Also drove by far too many waterfalls to count...most of them spectacular! Hiked to a few of them for a closer look.
Back to the ship around 8pm for dinner...and a few more bar tours!
We're docked overnight and aren't leaving until Monday night so I'm going on another road trip tomorrow...to the summit of the island!
