Maui Thursday

MM booked us on a private farm tour for today, a driver with a van, with 8 other customers from the ship. Our driver is quite talkative, but seems to know her flora and fauna.

First visit was to a lavender farm, where many different varieties of lavender. We got to enjoy lavender tea or coffee, and a scone laced with lavender. Yum!

She had picked up our picnic lunch, which we enjoyed overlooking the fields and bay from 4,000'. It was cool and mostly cloudy up there.

We are now about to take a wine tour, complete with tasting, at Maui Wine, then we will head back to the ship. Oh, we took a wee side trip to see where Oprah has bought a house.

Our guide is filled with tidbits. Filled! As in Chatty Cathy. Our ears are tired, but we are having fun.

Cheers. Aloha, y'all!

Hawaii Wine? Who knew?! Bottoms up!

The landscape looks amazing... and far more expansive than I'd think of when I think "islands". Expansive and expensive... srsly.

Can't wait to see what we're doing Friday! big hugs xoxo

Sounds like your guide wanted to be sure you got your money's worth on this tour. Lavender tea and scone sounds delightful, as does your picnic.

I love Kauai very much. Of all the islands, that's my favorite.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. ♥♥♥
