Hangin' With the Big Guys in Maui

Maui Sun GodApparently Maui, the sun god, was a bit of a prankster in his youth...here, at the Kahului Airport, he's depicted pulling the sun from the sky because he wanted to slow it down and give his mother more daylight. I'm thinking "Wow-wee Maui! Those are some pretty big...umm, aspirations! How 'bout a loin cloth?"Olga the Traveling Bra at the Kaanapali Beach Club Resort Upon arrival at our Ka'anapali Beach hotel, I was given a traditional flower lei greeting by this friendly native...Ms. KamanawanaleiaOlga the Traveling Bra and Buddha
Every time I'd pass by Buddha in the hallway, he'd say; "Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful." After about the hundredth time, I said; "Dood! Lighten up! I'm on vacation here!" Kalama Park Whale and Olga, the Traveling BraHere I am (feeling a bit like a fish out of water) in front of the famous Humpback Whale Statue at Kalama Park in Kihei. Oh, and I saw tons of whales in the ocean too! (Stay tuned for more on that!)King Kamehameha and Olga the Traveling Bra
I ran into King Kamehameha I (whose full Hawaiian name is Kalani Paiea Wohi o Kaleikini Keali`ikui Kamehameha o`Iolani i Kaiwikapu kaui Ka Liholiho Kunuiakea) at the Grand Wailea Resort...he's turning 250 years old this year...and his abs are still rock hard!Olga the Traveling Bra and Venus, Grand Wailea Venus is even older and definitely hotter!
Dang!...don't they believe in clothes over here?! Olga the Traveling Bra My WaiiBut this is the pretty lady I woke up to every morning in our lovely little beach cottage by the sea ~ isn't she a beauty?Olga the Traveling Bra Kihei Sunset

You really did capture some great shots on vacation Olga! I am looking forward to seeing more whale pictures ... I have always been fasinated by these massive mammals (mammories) of the sea 8~)

Loin cloths?? Ohh sure, they are very comfortable. Not just for the islands.

Lord Likely said...

I agree with Drowsey Monkey - Maui looks a little...small, does he not?

Did he burn his aspirations off with the sun?

meleah rebeccah said...

Beautiful photos.....and the loin cloth sentence = hilarious.

Julie said...

Looks like you had a great time! I love the last picture with the sunset! And the bra, of course!

Hungry Mother said...

Those damned missionaries made them wear clothes and use the missionary position. You're making me miss Hawaii.

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

I tried not to stare, Lord Likely...but now that you and Drowsey draw my attention to it...yes, it appears Maui got a little short changed didn't he?
~Olga

Thanks Meleah...Loin cloths are actually pretty dang funny if you ask me! Just ask Speedy!
~Olga

Thanks Julie - There's nothing more beautiful that a Maui sunset...

Jeanna said...

I'd think a loin cloth would compliment you nicely, Olga. That's some pretty good fence climbing there, girl.

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

Thanks Jeanna! I'm thinkin' 2008 just may be "The Year of the Loin Cloth!"
