Lazy beach day

With a bad wind forecast for the day and just a few days left before my daughter has to leave, we decided to go boogie boarding today. After renting boards for $6/day at the Maui Windsurf Company, we followed the suggestion of the store owner and drove to a little beach in Wailea.

The beach was very lovely, the waves were ok for some little rides, just enough to keep it interesting for a while. Here are a few pictures:

As you can see on the last picture, it was pretty windy; the airport sensors showed averages above 20 for the entire afternoon. I would not have minded going windsurfing, but foolishly, I let the girls pick a restaurant right next to a little shopping mall for lunch. After lunch and mandatory ice cream, there was some extended shopping that had to be done (or so I was told). By the time we were back in Kahului, it was late afternoon - just about the time that the wind often drops. So no windsurfing today - but there should be plenty of wind again tomorrow. We'll probably do some driving around the beautiful island in the morning, but the afternoon is reserved for windsurfing! That said, I still find it amazing that not sailing the whole day even though it was windy, warm, and sunny does not bug me much...
