Maui - Day 3

Maui Day 3 – January 11, 2012 (Ambers Tour Day/Beach Day)
Another beautiful day in paradise and an early wake up call from the birds. No real plans for today so we took our time leaving the house. Made coffee and breakfast at home and played with the adorable Emma for a while.
Amber suggested that she show us around South Maui and her favorite spots. So we let her be the tour guide for the day. It was a little cloudy when we started out for the day so our first stop was down to La Perouse Bay.  La Perouse Bay is located south of the town of Wailea at the end of Makena Alanui Road, just keep driving till you cannot drive any further and you will end up at the parking lot for La Perouse.

After taking in the beautiful lava formations we loaded up in the car and slowly worked our way back up to Kihei. We stopped at many beaches along the way and I wish I could remember all the names but it is amazing what you can find just by pulling over to the side of the road. We would not have found half of these beaches by ourselves. Here are some pictures showing the beautiful South Maui beaches.

We then decided to hit a couple farmers markets in the area and got some great fruit and vegetables for the week. We also bought the sweetest basil and fresh tomatoes to make a caprese salad for dinner. We dropped off Amber and Emma at the house so the baby could nap. Kevin and I headed back down to the beach for a couple hours until Amber's husband got out of work.

After some beach time we decided to stop by the Shops at Wailea to check it out. What a cute shopping area. We stopped at Longhi's for happy hour and had our first Mai Tai's of the trip.

We headed back to Amber's to cook dinner and watch the sun set from their driveway.

After the beautiful sunset we headed back down to the house and cooked up some dinner along with our caprese salad made with all local Maui ingredients.
Another early night to bed to rest up for Day 4 in paradise.
