Let’s go to the beach and stick our toes in the sparkling sand and watch the setting sun and the heaving and sighing of the waves and the golden ribbon on the water that disappears into the horizon…

Kaanapali Beach Reminiscing

I’ve collected quotes for as long as I can remember, and this is one of my favourites.  (I came across it again the other day and thought I’d share it with some of my favourite pictures from Kaanapali Beach in March – watching the sunset every night was my favourite part of the trip).

“The world is not respectable; it is mortal, tormented, confused, deluded forever; but it is shot through with beauty, with love, with glints of courage and laughter; and in these, the spirit blooms timidly, and struggles to the light amid the thorns.”

morning coffee with a rainbow

There’s not a better start to a morning than seeing a double rainbow while you drink your morning coffee!  It didn’t take long to figure out to always have a camera beside me while I drank my morning coffee as we saw whales almost every morning from the lanai at Maui Kaanapali Villas, but this double rainbow was the icing on the cake.  No wonder a tear or two rolled down my cheek watching the sunset on the last night of the trip – it’s just that kind of place!!!

“Ocean View”

Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas early evening view

“Ocean view” can mean many things when you book accommodations for a trip.  It could mean you if you stand on the very end of your balcony and lean the top half of your body just so over the railing… there it is…an ocean view!  So, I tried not to have too many expectations about the view, if it wasn’t a full on ocean view, at least the ocean was only a two minute walk away!  But, I’m a landlocked prairie girl so I wanted to see and be near the ocean as much as possible – morning, noon and night!

When we walked into the condo (and bonus of all bonuses, we were upgraded to a newly renovated suite) and saw that this was the view we couldn’t stop smiling!  We saw whales almost every morning while having coffee in the morning (I tried to take a few whale pictures from the lanai with so-so results).  We went to the beach to watch the sunset on the last night of the trip and when we came back up to change for supper this was the scene! Ocean view can’t get much better than this!  🙂
