Some of my favorites... Honeymoon Edition

On the 2nd day of our honeymoon we went and saw the sunrise at the top Haleakala. We left at 2 o'clock in the morning and drove until at about 3:30 and then waited patiently until 6. Totally worth the wait and the freezing cold. (We totally stole to hotel's comforter!)

From the top of the summit you could see all of Maui. You can only really get this view first thing in the morning because the rest of the day it gets covered in clouds. You really feel like you're on the top of the world.

We went snorkeling at Molokini and "Turtle Town". "Turtle Town" is funny because the water is so deep and the turtles hang out at the bottom in the coral. You could swim over them and never know it. We got lucky and one decided to swim up to the top to get some fresh air. (This was taken with a cheap disposable waterproof camera! I still can't get over how good of pictures it took!)

The cabana we stayed at in Hana had geckos running all over the walls. Some were inside and some outside. Some poked their heads out under picture frames and others walked across the ceiling. This little guy was on the outside of our window.

This was a flower on the side of the road in Hana. I think it looks like a Chinese lantern.

At our cabana they let you pick whatever fruit you wanted out of the garden. Doug saw some guava that he wanted to get. he covered himself in bug spray (did I mention the million mosquitoes?)and ventured out into the garden. I stayed back so I wouldn't get bit and used my zoom lens!

So we took pictures of all our food on our honeymoon. We're just freaks like that.

Anyways, back to the picture. Nothing in Hana is open for dinner. And by nothing I mean the Hotel Hana Maui and nothing else. So Doug made dinner. Mmmmm....

Have you ever heard of breadfruit? Apparently Hawaiians either mash it like potatoes or make some sort of dessert out of it. And it grows to the size of a human head.
