Maui 2012 Recap Iao Needle, Botanical Garden and Mama’s

Maui recap part four…

In addition to our daily Pilates and Yoga classes we also managed to get in several hikes. Here we are at the Iao Needle near Wailuku.

Here’s a group shot…

We found a side trail up a little stream. It was beautiful and reminiscent of Oregon (except that it was in the 70’s and sunny).

Here’s a yoga action shot of Sharilyn and Anne’s Tree pose.

And here are some shots from the botanical garden. We stumbled upon this tiny place as we were driving and I didn’t know what to expect but I was really glad we stopped here. Orchids growing right out of the sides of trees, a million different types of palms. Ned was our official botanist and knew the names of lots of these plants.

Can you spot the Gecko?

We finished the day (I told you this trip was action packed) at Mama’s Fish House in Paia for pupus. Everything I had heard about this place was dead on, the view was ridiculous, the service was amazing and the food was ono!

Here is our sunset view from the Lanai.

And the whole crew at dinner. What a lovely treat to be able to eat our meals outside!
