Maui - photo heavy post
This morning at 8AM we docked in Kahului on Maui. Kyle and I were going to take the Rainforest and Waterfalls Hike. We had paid $136 each to do so. We got to the dock and were told that the cruise ship company had oversold the tour and there wasn't room for us. Our money would be refunded, but - sorry - we have nothing available for your to do today.
Undaunted, we decided to make our own fun, so we walked a mile or so to the farmer's market at the Queen Kaahumanu shopping center. Wayy cool!
For those who asked, here is Baabette in her formal wear. You can see the pink earrings. She was so festive!
She has been a bit of a pain lately. She wants a pirate earring. And a date with Johnny Depp.
And, because the fibronistas asked, here is the fabric I have been unable to resist. A jellyroll of navy to pale blue batiks. I got these at Artistic Expressions. I was trying soooo hard to be disciplined.
Then I found a fabric store here in Maui - I fell for a bundle of 4 fat quarters that co-ordinated with the jelly roll. The shop is Sew Special and they are just crammed with gorgeous batiks and Hawaiian prints. AND, they have a web site - firstname.lastname@example.org so we can order fabric on line if we should start to run out. (Part of my brain is saying, "You can scarcely walk through your workroom because you have BOXES of fabric stacked up on the floor!!!")
And omigawd, I found a bolt end - a yard and quarter, that is perfect with everything else!
So we came back to the ship, had lunch, sat in the hot-tub, had cold beverages . . . I am NOT being very WeightWatching accountable. A MaiTai is nothing but empty calories. But I HAVE gotten in 12,003 steps and 53 flights of stairs so far today.
If only I could resist the chocolate melting cake at dinner. Rich dark chocolate - imagine a brownie that is only half-baked so you get a little cake and then spoonfuls of warm brownie batter that is like a chocolate orgasm for your tongue.
And there is no scale available on the ship. No way at all to weigh in. No way to see if I am holding the line or sinking into the slow fat morass. (more ass)
