    I’m so jealous. *sigh*

  2. Hilly says:

    God, I love Maui. I hope you are having the best time…but something tells me that you are :).

  3. Michelle says:

    Eat some chocolate covered macadamia nuts for me. And I remember the sunsets….. thanks for reminding me of the sunsets. Bliss.

  4. Mattie says:

    So beautiful.

  5. sizzle says:

    So in other words. . .BLISS.

  6. koehmstedt says:

    Ah Maui, my favorite place ever!

  7. I can’t wait to get there someday. Glad you’re enjoying yourself, glad you found a Hard Rock (hope it’s quieter than Atlanta’s), and glad you’re finally relaxing! 🙂

  8. LOVE maui. especially the pioneer inn and the massive tree there in lahaina. it reminds me of the baobab trees that the little prince talked about. i’m officially a tree hugger because i hug that tree every time i am there.

    damn, you make me wanna post my photos from last year, but mine aren’t nearly as nice as yours. i can almost smell the plumeria from here. sigh.

    one last time…my family’s restaurant is just a boat ride away. jump on the lahaina – lanai ferry and be on lanai after a peaceful 45 minute boat ride. 🙂

  9. Betta says:

    That sunset has to be the greatest ever… ’cause it’s so beautiful… and Dave is there!! 😛

  10. Dave I’m generally in love with you most days – but today my jealousy might just be outweighing the love a bit.

  11. Just lovely! Thank you so much for posting some pictures. It makes me feel (if just for a moment) that I’ve escaped from my crappy office. So glad you’re having a nice, relaxing time away. 🙂

  12. Emily says:

    Stunning, absolutely stunning.

  13. Lewis says:

    Hey, that’s the same Hard Rock that I took a picture of and sent to you after we were there last fall. We anchored just off shore right there. Wow, I can almost smell that flower!

  14. Foo says:

    Reminds me of my beautiful Maui wedding…so jealous! Have a wonderful vacation.

  15. Marc says:

    Speaking of Hard Rock… have you checked the HRC website’s Coming Soon section lately?

  16. Whitenoise says:

    Very nice. Hope you get some rest.

  17. Jeff says:

    These are some great shots. The plumeria flowers are beautiful.

    Is it possible that you could release some desktop-size images for backgrounds? Pretty please? With sugar on top?

  18. Jeff says:

    Beautiful pics!

    Is that HRC open? It looks a little plain compared to other ones I’ve seen.

  19. walt says:


    I hope you were enjoying a fruity drink while taking theses. Everything is so much better barefoot with a ice cold something or other containing an appropriate amount of rum! Best wishes on your travels the pics are great.

  20. Gina says:

    That first shot is gorgeous – I wish my flower shots turned out that well.

    Love the other pics too, of course!

  21. I haven’t been there in a long time but I would really like to live there someday. Beautiful. I hope you are having a nice relaxing time!

  22. jewelz916 says:

    One word….JEALOUSY…and that doesn’t even begin to cover it! Hope you’re having a faboo time!

  23. SWEET!!!

    I wanna be in that sunset!!!


  24. SJ says:

    Gorgeous pics! Are these with your new camera?

    What IS your new camera???

  25. I hate you so much right now.
    wish i was there

  26. Ok, you win the sunset competition. By a long bloody margin. Oh my goodness those photos are stunning.

    Oooh a plumeria, I love those flowers, they look so pretty and smell so sweet.

  29. Aynde says:

    When in Maui – Eat at Peggy Sue’s (Kihei)!! Tell them Aynde sent you! 🙂

    Visited Maui a couple of years ago to visit the in laws (they own peggy sues). Fun vacation. If you ever get the chance to go to the spa at the Grand Wailea I HIGHLY recommend it. 🙂

    Hope you have a fabulous time!
