This is what happens when you spend a day on Maui and don’t try to do anything special. No long drive up to the crater or Hana. Just laze around and don’t go all that far from the hotel in Kihei. Hawaii simply encourages this sort of behavior. To the locals, it is the Hawaiian way. I photographed the paddleboard instructor because the board was bright yellow, matching the top of her bikini. A large part of Maui is devoted to growing sugar. It is harvest time so the sugar mill is running and the sugar fields are burning. A food truck is parked around the corner from the hotel in Kihei every evening. Its lovely owner sells calamari among other tasty items.
