Welcome back, Cevolas!

Holy Maori! That is amazing. Wendy, please send Dan over to help pick my mouth up off of the floor after looking at the latest photos.

I vote for 350 photos on this trip. No, a 17 day trip? 401 photos.

Jon, if the coyotes start turning towards you, run faster.

Welcome Back Wendy! The huge Maori is absolutely gorgeous and I love what you've done with the backside...it looks amazing!!! This mug has turned out so much better than I every imagined and I will be super proud to display this as the center piece of my growing collection.

I'm guessing 510 photos, as there are just so many cool and beautify things to photograph on Maui.

Wow, awesome mug!
I'm going to jump in on my first contest.
I think you took 1,050 pics. Jon takes hundreds a week
so that doesn't sound too crazy of a guess.

MaukaHale 170 pictures

IDoVoodoo 89 pictures

Professor G 637 pictures.

TikiAno 401 photos

Tyber Tiki 510 photos I am so happy that I fulfilled your Wish. I'm also glad that you challenged me with this project.

domin 478 photos I did the back as if it were one of my supercarved Tiki Bob's only this was the size of 5 Bob's. Thank you for posting. I live for these comments. They bring me a lot of joy.

SewTiki 1,050 pics I have a lot in common with you and Jon, this is just one thing of many.

hang10tiki 700 photos.

===================================

I did this whole list and then erased it by accident. So here we go again.

The WINNER IS SewTiki with 1,050 because I took 1,076 photos. That was so close. SewTiki you should keep entering contests!
I'll send your Cheers shot glass in the future, I won't forget.

From past contests I'm still holding:

LoriLovesTikis shell necklace
hang10tikis turtle necklace
Tyber Tiki's puffer fish necklace

When the Wish List is done all the prizes will ship with their orders.

==================================================

Now for our trip to Maui Hawaii. We haven't been there since 1998. We are staying at the same hotel as last time.

We flew Alaska Airlines and the leg room was far better then our last trips on American Airlines.
Right off I noticed this pattern. It reminded me of RVICTORS mug he made for the Swap.


Not exactly the pattern but it had the same feel.


Approaching the island of Maui. I was guessing this is Haleakala.


Farm land everywhere and not many tropical rain-forests.


We checked Kaanapoli Beach hotel where they displayed a collection of drums just like Buzzy carves so well.


These photos are of the grounds of the hotel where there is a tiki bar and snack bar.




We were impressed with the number of tikis now used in decorating all the hotels.



Right off the bat it was sticker shock. On our last trip Huli Huli chicken was on every menu for $6.99.


Along Kaanapoli Beach there are many restaurants where you can have a meal and watch the sunset.


Tiki Torches just make the ambience so much better.









Now it was goodnight and time to relax and read.

Now it's time for lunch and then to work clay until tonight. Cheers, Wendy

PS Tiki Wahine I've started your Tiki Bob Marley

Wendy,

You've just gotten started and already I'm drooling over your pictures from Maui! Love the sunset and palm trees!

It's 20 degrees in NJ with a windchill of 10 and overnight it will be down to an actual temp of 2 degrees. The hubby and I are headed to Miami, Key West and the Bahamas for a quick trip next weekend and leaving the kids and dogs home and I CAN'T wait for warm weather!

hang10tiki living in a city like Las Vegas that never sleeps would be pretty exciting if you didn't need sleep. You two sure have fun. I wish I were so young.

===============================

More days on the island of Maui, Hawaii.


We traveled a few minutes south to Lahina. In 1998 I bought a shirt at Cheeseburger in Paradise and it was still in operation.


We walked along the ocean in the town until we came upon


some carvers. What beautiful Honu. hang10tiki I see a turtle I think of you.


The prices were so high compared to the Don the Beachcomber's Marketplace Dan decided to save his money for shopping in California. Of course there's our trip to see Maui Rob and Beachbumz's coming up. I wonder what they have for sale.


We had lunch at Kimo's so we could get a slice of Hula Pie. Oh my gosh it's so good that my heart is going to be in trouble.


In a window we saw a drive to Hana t-shirt. We had decided that once was enough. Little did I know I was going to find a worse road and be trapped for 3 hours. But that's a different day.


There were rocks balanced for all to view. I think a man was working for tips but was gone when we got there.


We returned to our room for a nap for Dan and a book for me. Surprise! The book mentioned that song that the restaurant was named after just having photographed it a few hours back. The book was from 1994 and I'd bought it used. Imagine that!!!


Each day I would get up and sit here to post on Tiki Central. I had a wonderful view and Dan fed the birds.


The next 5 photos are all taken at the Iao Needle. We walked on every path we could find. We met a retired police officer there with his young son. He said his career was on Oahu but now his life is in Maui. Oahu = heavy crime and Maui = little crime. I guess Hawaii 5-O is right on.














On the way back to our hotel we stopped at Maui Plantation to walk the beautiful grounds.








Back at the hotel I photographed a tiki they had as decoration for the stage. I thought what a good tiki to make a mug of. I was to find that this had already been done to perfection by Maui Rob. Did some come home with us? Stay tuned.


==========================

I am having such a fun time making Tiki Wahine's Tiki Bob Marley. That will be up as soon as I'm done posting our trip photos. Lynn gave me such a challenge. Last year her's was Rat Fink at Disneyland.



This years is even harder! Cheers, Wendy
