Brigid Travels

Updates from The Road

Maui - 2/1 [2014]

Happy St Brigid's Day! My patron saint, who turned bath water to beer :)

This morning Danielle and I did a 5k starting at 7am, the Run/Walk for the Whales, starting at Ma'alaea Harbor and up/ on Kihei Road a bit. Lovely, with just a bit of rain. And we spotted some whales out in the bay!

Now resting up before heading to another whale watching raft adventure!

On a sad note, a brother from my college fraternity, Delta Sigma chapter of Sigma Nu, died yesterday from complications of liver and pancreatic cancer. So sad. So young. Bob "Klump" Klemm was so much larger than life, absolutely hilarious and a proud West Virginian. Haven't seen him in a number of years, but he will be missed. I'm so glad to be in touch with my frat brothers and little sisters via Facebook.


Unfortunately we were not able to go whale watching today :( the waves were too rough so all boats were canceled. We came back and walked down to Black Rock to see if we could snorkel. We couldn't. We would have been battered against the lava rock!

Since it was choppy and there were lots of whitecaps, it was hard to spot whales from shore, too. And then the deluge started again. So plans have been frustrated today but it still was a lovely day.
