-- A Hawaiian Family Vacation: Maui
is a virtual scrapbook, with photos and commentary of various Maui destinations. Barbara Lougheed was born and raised in Honolulu, graduated from the University of Hawaii, moved to the mainland, and married a mainlander. After her son was born and was old enough to travel, she had to plan her first visit back home and decide what to show her mainland born husband and son. She came back to visit every few years, and her new ebook is a summary of the places they visited and the foods they ate.
Photos and reviews of famous sights like the sunrise at Haleakala and a Lanai daytrip with snorkeling are included, but so are other lesser-known activities like watching windsurfers at Hookipa Beach near Paia, the Kapalua Coastal Trail hike, the artsy city of Makawao on the way to Haleakala, the Maui Swap Meet in Kahului, and surfing lessons in Lahaina. Beaches snorkeled include Honolua Bay, Slaughterhouse Beach, Kapalua Bay, Napili Beach, Kahekili Beach, Black Rock at Kaanapali, and Makena Beach.Dining in Maui on a Budget
