More Than Just Beaches?

* I've been asked to start labeling my photos individually, I hope doing so doesn't detract from your reading enjoyment.  This information was brought to you from an OC woman with beached-out, bleached-out, hair.  *

Most of my time in Maui was spent on the beach.

I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you there are other things to do on Maui too.

Whaler's Village, Kaanapali, Maui, Hawaii

The above photo was taken at Whaler's Village, an upscale shopping mall in Kaanapali.  Isn't that tree amazing?  Whaler's Village is just a step or two off the beach but it's also the location of a Coach store, a Louis Vuitton store, numerous surfwear stores, etc.  

If you want even more high end shopping, Wailea has a ton of stores the majority of us I can't afford to shop in.

I like to stroll through the shops to get a break from the sun.  I don't think I've ever bought anything of great significance at Whaler's Village, but my daughter did purchase an adorable bikini this trip.

I don't wear bikinis anymore, do you?

In fact, if I could I would wear a tent.  Tents aren't very comfortable to swim in though and I do love to swim.

If you're ever at Whaler's Village and/or Kaanapali, make sure and visit Hula Grill also.

It's such a relaxing spot to enjoy lunch (or a drink with a little umbrella in it).

Cocktail drink umbrellas

Not that I would know anything about drinks with little umbrellas in them.

Of course, Whaler's Village would not be complete without a whale …

Skeleton of a California Sperm Whale at Whaler's Village, Kaanapali, Maui, Hawaii

So, they brought this whale skeleton over from California to show off.

I always get a good laugh out of that.

    The first photo (of Whaler’s Village) looks like an architect’s drawing! AMAZING!

    If I were California I would want my whale back….. and love the spot where you drank little umbrella drinks.. I think I could sit and drink there for quite a while. 🙂 And collect umbrellas.
