Maui – Day 2

With conference taking up the entire morning, we only had the afternoon to check out the island.

Lunch was at Aloha Mixed Plate in Lahaina.  I had the shoyu chicken which tasted very similar to something I’ve grown up eating.  Joe had the Mochiko chicken, which he wasn’t too impressed with.  The view however, was great.

I was debating between going for a hike at the Iao Valley park or checking out Wailea/Makena, but since I didn’t have the proper footwear (again), we opted for the Wailea area last minute.

Here’s one of my favorite stretches on Honoapiilani highway.  Love the tree canopy!

There wasn’t much in Wailea except for some real high end luxury resorts and the Makena public beach at the end of the road.

Since lunch was huge, we opted to skip dinner, but we did stop for pie at Leoda’s.  We wanted to get the guava chiffon pie, but that was sold out – we tried again the next day without success, but did finally get it the morning we flew out (we sat outside curbside before going through TSA, enjoying the pies while appreciating the Maui mountain views).

Pies were good – a bit too sweet for our palate, but this is the place to go if you love mousse pies.
