I have a lot of photos. That is putting it mildly. I’ve taken tens of thousands of photos since my dad first handed me a camera when I was 8 years old. For the rest of the summer, and maybe beyond, I’m going to dive into my archives and rediscover a few fun adventures I’ve taken over the years with and without my family. Just a little something to add some oomph to your Friday as you head into the weekend.
I started to recap our adventure down to Oregon this week. I thought it only fitting to dig through the archives and find photos from an accidental road trip we took around the northwest side of Maui back in 2010. Basically we started driving north from Lahaina towards a beach we had heard about. A 5-month-old Dek promptly fell asleep in the car. What else could I do but keep driving. I sure wasn’t going to wake him up.
The loop back to Lahaina didn’t look that big on the map. We could alway turn around if we needed too. Little did I now just how narrow those roads would be or just how far the drive was.
In the end everything worked out for the best. Dek took a nice nap, while Mike and I got to see a side of the island we probably never would have thought to see. I also discovered Julia’s Banana Bread and Passion Fruit Butter. Divine!
If you ever get to Maui do yourself a favor and drive around the northwest side. You may just find an unexpected adventure.
