First Day in Maui So Far!

So after this...
We landed last night to this...
Then today we woke up to this...
The condo we're staying in has an amazing view!
We even had the special treat of a rainbow while enjoying our morning cup of joe.
Then we headed over to the Ritz Carlton to see my sisters wedding site.
I loved this beautiful altar.
And the view there is stunning!
The beach is stunning.
And the ocean is so many gorgeous shades of blue...
Me, my sister the bride, and the husband.
A bit wind blown.
On the walk up off the beach we stopped at the Jean Michell Cousteau Ambassador Conservation Center where they had Loco and Moco the pigs.
Of course I had to stop and say hello!
They were the cutest! Such little sweeties!
Then we headed over to Star Noodle for lunch. It's supposed to be some of the best noodles on the island and is where Sheldon from Top Chef cooked for a while (not sure if he's still there...).
Any rate... It was sooo yummy!
We started with the Ahi Avo, a seasoned raw ahi and avocado dish that was superb.
Next we indulged in some steamy deliciousness.
These steamed pork buns were so good with the hoisin sauce and spicy mustard they came with.
I'm really loving the steamed bun combo these days.
I had the the Fried Saimin noodles minus the egg, cause I'm allergic. It had kamaboko (the pink and white fish pieces), spam, bean sprouts, and scallions. I wasn't so sure about the spam cause it was my first time trying it... It wasn't bad but it was the dish as a whole that was super good.
The husband had the Lahaina Fried Soup which consists of Fat Chow Funn, ground pork, and bean sprouts. It was yummy too but mine was better.
I washed it all down with some Teazu: iced tea, yuzu, and simple syrup. Definitely something to try to replicate later!
Next we headed back to the condo my parents rented where my sister is staying. Tristan was watching for humpback whales and enjoying the waves and kit boarders.
The view is gorgeous!
So right now we're just chilling out and enjoying all of this!
