Wendy & Dan - The trip photos are fun to see. Other than Kimo's, I remember being at every spot you posted photos at...so its really cool seeing you and Dan in the same spots....including the bar at Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. Thats one place you can still get served a drink in a coconut.

Don't hesitate to post more Maui photos as people like myself really enjoy seeing your travels.

Wendy-your right about the pattern on the plane looking like the mug...funny. You are also a dear for going back and answering my question...thanks!

lunavideogames Oahu is the island of choice. You could visit Gecko'z and La Mariana. There's so much to do there. Maui is more relaxing. You could visit Maui Rob and Beachbumz. Save up because these guys have excellent tiki mugs. I hope you'll share your photos here or at least give us the link.


hang10tiki that pie is a real killer.

hang10tiki where is GROG?

LoriLovesTiki Florida sounds great. We loved our time there seeing the Mai Kai and visiting Benzart and zerostreet.
Maybe you can find a hula pie there.

RVICTOR gosh I didn't see anyone drinking from a coconut on our whole trip. We did see a stand for them on our drive from the airport. Eye just looked at your thread. It's so much fun to watch you work.


I have to leave for the dentist, back later with photos. Wendy

Wendy, I like Oahu best but it seems like everyone I talk to asks why I would go there and not Kauai... I like to have stuff to do, I like the action as well as the tropical scenery. My wife and I went to the Big Island a few times, the first time was for 2 weeks. I was really bored since everything closed early. I am a night owl so if there is nothing to do in the night time I get really antsy. It seems like everyone else prefers to just relax but I already live in San Diego so I have plenty of time to relax.

I hope that Maui is fun, I will make it fun! Of course I am going to see Gecko and Beachbumz and La Mariana might be our first stop even before checking in to our hotel. I will post some pictures for you as well.

lunavideogames I'm like you. Oahu is the happening place. Kauai is wonderful for gardens. On Maui if it is your first time the road to Hana and back is around 6-7 hours but everyone needs to do it once. Don't bother going around the other volcano. Just watch my photos and you'll see the best parts other than Hana we choose not to do it again.

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

We are afraid of being late so on our way to Kihei to have lunch with Maui Rob and Beachbumz we went exploring in that town.

At a tourist craft fair on the main road into Kihei we found this closed booth. Wow! I will forever wonder how much these would cost to buy and to ship. We are so lucky to have great carvers right in California and Florida just to mention a few states.






Then we went to the Hawaiian quilting and fabric shop. I picked out this material to make a table cloth. I need more time in each day.


We went down the road and found the Tiki Lounge where we were to meet the men. Next door was the International Marketplace, Maui.


The first purchase was this mask. The lady turned out to be Beachbumz mother-in-law.


Then we found Beachbumz's wife in there shop.


Dan was in heaven.


These were 2 of the mugs he needed for his collection.



We said goodbye and headed back to the restaurant.


We found a good seat and waited for the men to arrive.


Maui Rob and Beachbumz, yippie now we are having fun.


Beachbumz aka Scott brought us a couple of his necklaces. Perfection.


Scott wanted us to all pose for photos for Tiki Magazine.


This is the one I hope he submits, it's my favorite.


After lunch we followed Maui Rob to his office to see his tiki overflow. Later in the week we will see the men's homes and there complete collections.


Aloha friends and Mahalo for the visit. Wendy

PS I'm making great headway on the Wish List

hang10tiki those were huge. I wish the artist had been there with loaded tables. No such luck.
The fabric store was the best ever. The warehouse by the airport had much cheaper fabric that was low quality.

MauiTiki we had a blast visiting with you two. So much so I forgot to see your work spaces with your kilns. Oh no, we'll have to return someday.

RVICTOR yes it was tiki heaven.

LoriLovesTiki a highlight for sure.

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

Here are a couple more days on the island of Maui, Hawaii.

We started out to look for the blow hole up north of Kaanapoli. When we got there we couldn't find parking. The scourge of tourism. I thought let's continue on. We had never driven this far north.



We enjoyed the view and


even stopped for a selfie.


Before long the road became a single lane but we continued on.



Higher and higher and every so often we were on a very narrow lane with a cliff on one side. Of course that's when traffic going the opposite direction would come nose to nose with us. I was always the one to backup looking for a wider space so they could squeeze by. I had to get so close to the mountain side that I was moving vegetation.


Just like Hana we could only go at 10 to 20 miles an hour. However going to Hana there are two lanes except on bridges.


Taking photos was not easy because staying alert was important. At some curves I honked before going around and I swear it saved us one time. We only ran into 5 cars in close to 3 hours on this road before we were back in civilization. This is a drive that's fun one time but never again.


Back in town we stopped at Walmart to buy a photo memory card. This island sure does love it's SPAM. When I was a kid my mom fried it and we loved it too. Dan has never had a beard. On this trip I hid his razor and said, "let it grow".



On another day we went to Kula gardens. This is one place I took hundreds of photos. Someday when lifting molds doesn't work for us I will once again start to paint. I will have many reference photos to use by then.


The garden is owned by a family and they love tikis. Every so often in the garden you will find one, two or three. I'm not sharing them because if you ever go finding them is such a treat.

















You just follow the many paths and enjoy a real Hawaii paradise. This was our favorite place.

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

Thank you for letting me share. Soon I'll be posting the Wish List progress. Cheers, Wendy

Wow, I'm just catching up on this thread. Wendy, your work is truly amazing! One of these days we'll have to get in on some of your beautiful mugs.

And thanks for all the Vacation pictures. I'm not a big Maui person, but you sure make it look good.


(Thanks to you too for the photos, too, Hang10 - we never make it to the Double Down anymore; too addicted to Frankie's! Heading back next Week!)

Wendy-This past summer we actually drove that north road and the road into Hana on the same day. My wife said the same thing about that road being more dangerous. That was one trip I was glad to have dropped the extra coin and rented the Jeep.
