Full Moon Motorcycle ride in Maui

Tuesday was a fabulous full moon. During the day you could see it over Haleakala Mountain! My husband & I along with 6 new friends including a couple visiting Maui from Switzerland, rode our motorcycles from Kihei Maui to Lahaina Maui, leaving at 6:30 pm. After driving straight into a breath taking sunset, we cruised down Front Street in Lahaina just in time to see the green flash. Then on we rumbled to Lulu’s in the Cannery Mall to enjoy a great meal together. We have been hosting this full moon ride for quite awhile now, but never has it been comedy central like this night. Everyone laughed so hard our sides hurt. When the time came that we must part company, we rode back to the South Side of Maui under a very full, bright and close moon, slight cool tropical breeze, light dancing on the flat sea, we rode on through the mountains and back to the sea. What a ride! If you’d like to see where we go to eat check this link out. They serve really good food. www.luluslahaina.com/

The "Flash"

For all you wonderful blog readers out there, I have to tell you, if you’re not in Maui, you’re missing out. It has been a wonderful summer thus far. With our white sand beaches in Kihei, and my favorite, secret beaches, I have no problem finding a place to bring my lawn chair and enjoy a beautiful sunset. This time of year the sun sets behind the island of Lanai so if you want to see the infamous green flash, drive to Lahaina although during winter it’s best in Kihei. There, just before the sun disappears into the water till morning, for just a fraction of a second, there…wait....the flash! Once you see it, you’re hooked!! Or at least I was. It is like it got in my blood and became part of me. I want to see it again and again! Every sunset is different. Some paint the sky with multi colors and hues of blue, with pink streaks darting across to capture unsuspecting clouds and light them up in the most brilliant displays of pinks and oranges. Well, I hope you can come and experience this for yourself. See you in Maui at the “flash”!
