Getting back to sun, nature, walking everywhere you go helps you find yourself. Living life simply. A coffee in the morning, a walk on an endless sand beach or a hike along West Maui’s Coastal Trail in Kapalua. If the morning doesn’t bring you peace then sitting on the beach at sunset as the sun kisses the ocean good night certainly will.
With the falling value of our Canadian Dollar it is good that for me most of the best things about a Hawaii life are free. When you add 30% to your bill even what seems like a great deal isn’t. Maui is also not the cheapest of the islands as food costs are high, much higher than home and when you add the exchange even buying the basics is expensive.
Saying all that a visit to a Farmer’s Market for fresh Pineapple, Mango, Papaya and a new favorite Passion Fruit is a special moment. Not all Farmer’s Markets are created equal and we really enjoyed the Market in Honokowai be it small and hard to find parking but staff are very helpful and you have an opportunity to sample many of the products. However to combat the plunging dollar just gave a person another reason to enjoy the beauty of nature.
