Let It Rain Some More



Even though I feel (somewhat) badly for tourists with a short time to spend on Maui, I'm thrilled we're finally getting rain on Maui again today! Bring on MORE rain! The Maui landscape looks so much more beautiful once it's been blessed and greened by the rain. And Heaven Knows, the island certainly could USE the rain!

Rain puts me into a philosophical mood and also takes away my guilt of not being outside. When it's sunny and beautiful on Maui, it's extremely challenging to be indoors. Today is the perfect day to curl up with a good book, eat hot soup, and attend to indoor matters with zero guilt. Yeh!

Yesterday we made a trip to Baby Beach in Spreckelsville, and the beach was packed with happy families enjoying the sun and the warm, turquoise water. This beach is nicknamed Baby Beach because it's protected by two reefs, and so the shallow water is perfect for babies. It's at the far end of Baldwin Beach, and even though there aren't facilities like showers, lifeguards or bathrooms, people flock here anyway. I think the photos speak for themselves as to why--just look at the color of blue water here!

Beautiful beach, will have to check it out.

I know what you mean, sometimes a rainy day can be relaxing. We only had one rainy day in all our trips to Maui, but then again we aren't usually there in the winter when I guess it tends to rain more. This trip (next March) we are spending a week in Kauai as well as a week on Maui so we may have more rain there. I remember when we were there before it often rained briefly every afternoon.
