alternate title - what i did on my maui vacation: burn out my corneas
in other words . . . . stare into the sunset each and every day.
We had gorgeous sunsets and we indulged in viewing them every evening. I was in heaven! On our last trip I was always disappointed at sunset time because the sky was full of clouds, obscuring our view of that fiery orb descending every so slowly behind the ocean horizon. But this time, I got what I wanted.
And we quickly discovered that 5 or 5:30 was the perfect time to go to dinner and snag one of the primo sunset view tables. Here's a few of our views . . . .
dinner at The Hula Grill in Whaler's village. A divine macadamia nut brownie ice cream sandwich for dessert.
dinner at Mala. Just past sunset . . . I wanted to share this picture so you could see how close we were seated to the water's edge. I took this picture from my seat. Once, I even felt a sprinkling of ocean water hit my ankle.
after dinner at Cheeseburger in Paradise in Lahaina. I stepped outside while Scott paid the bill and had my jaw drop at this gift of a view.

And remember the sunset dinner on Napili Bay that I mentioned in yesterday's post. Here's what we got to enjoy:
What a gorgeous setting. And the great food at The Sea House made it an all around five-star evening.
Now, for the record making part of dinner. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we ended up ordering . . .
. . . 4 desserts. Pineapple Tiramisu, Lava Cake, bowl of Tahitian Vanilla ice cream, and Bananas Foster.
Not much else to say here except, "yum!"
