Breakfast this morning consisted of the free continental breakfast provided for being SPG Platinum members.
Today’s activities included drives out to West Maui to see some of the great scenery. As we were driving around, we happened upon a paddleboard competition. I saw some people doing paddleboard when we were in the Maldives. I’m not quite sure I have the upper body strength for this activity especially after watching Shark Week on the Discovery Channel where a paddleboarder was attacked by sharks.
There were a couple of points on the trip where we were on a very narrow road with a sheer cliff to the left. I’ve never gripped the steering wheel so tight. It was seriously stressful driving that close to the cliff.
For lunch, we stopped at Teddy’s Burger. I ordered the Monster Double and onion rings. It came out as a giant mess. An underbooked hamburger with toppings and sauce dripping all over the place. We were very disappointed overall. We’ll pass on going back.
We headed back to the resort, cleaned up and heading back to Aloha mixed plate again and ordered the chow mein and ribs. A much better experience than Teddy’s Burger.
For dessert, we went to Ono Gelato. They have a back porch area that’s very quiet where you can eat your gelato and watch the waves. A very peaceful ending to a very busy day.
