Maui Is Heaven on Earth

These shots from our trip in February 2008

Heaven let your light shine down

I have maybe 10-15 thousand photographs of this magical island. Literally, every single one of them take your breath away. Its impossible to take a bad photograph on Maui! And I'm not even talking about the windsurfing action shots!

Apparently this house is a landmark. I'd like to know who lives there? If anyone has an idea, please leave a comment

Camp One

Upcountry near Rice Park. That coastline you see is the south shore near Maalaea


An important promise was made this day

The Tedeschi Winery upcountry at Ulupalakua Ranch

Twists and turns along the Hana Highway

Off road in search of Jaws

The town of Keanne

Passion fruit-

I beleive that is Three Bears waterfall

Maui is absolutely Heaven on Earth, and one day, Janis and I will call it our home.

I think that guy's house was featured in the windsurfing magazine's online forum a few weeks ago. If you search for "board fence", you'll find it.

man, you're making the wait until March pretty tough...

Guess I'll find out about the place for myself in a few months : )

Dave, I suspect a lot of people have made that same decision.

Andy, You've been warned.

My wife and I honeymooned there in NOV 2006. Got in a 5.0 day at Kanaha which relit the windsurfing fire in me (grew up in Miami enjoying almost all watersports). Maui lives up to the hype. Assuming decent paying work could be found (or early retirement), it would be a great place to live. Can't wait to go back.
