As the Great Plains heat up my mind starts to drift to the ocean and how we wish we were there.  One of our favorite vacations of all time was a 10 day stay to the Big Island of Hawaii.  Not as crowded as Oahu or Maui and just as beautiful.  In our minds the …

Top Ten Things to do on Maui

Makahiku Falls

Maui was our destination the last time that we traveled to Hawaii.  Karen and I had already been to Oahu and the Big Island, so Maui was the next logical destination.  I am sure glad that we got to go because Maui had beautiful beaches, excellent snorkel spots, and plenty of other beautiful things to …
