My Maui trip is officially over and I’m settling back into everyday life in the San Francisco Bay Area. The trip was honestly pretty stressful at first. We ended up halting our vacation to launder everything we owned because we were (dare I share?) attacked by bed bugs! We got it all settled out eventually and moved into a different place for the remainder of our stay. Even though it was extremely stressful for my boyfriend and I, we were able to handle the stress together and help each other stay strong through it all. Sometimes stress and disappointment can really try your nerves, but it’s important to learn how to handle those feelings because they will always come up in life. In the midst of the stress of finding a new place we hauled our beach chairs and a couple beers to the nearest beach and enjoyed one of the glorious Maui sunsets together. (It’s always amazing to me how long a sunset can feel when it only lasts a few minutes. Right?)
We also drove up and down a bit of the West coast of Maui and found some little groves near some pretty beautiful beaches. The water seems so much closer in Maui because the sand part of the beach is not the great expanse it is on most Californian beaches. It’s also warm and the sand is much softer. My feet are so exfoliated right now, you have no idea….
The following day we met up with some friends for a sunset cruise with snacks and drinks. It was really lovely seeing the Sun set without a bunch of people stepping in front of the camera and with some champagne in hand. We did the Kaanapali Sunset Sail through Trilogy and it was certainly one of my favorite parts of the trip. The crew was a lot of fun, the views were fantastic, and they even had Vegan & Gluten-Free food for me. If you ever make it out to Maui, you must go on this cruise.
