Larra: One of the things Jim wanted to do, at the beginning of my visit, was to drive around the eastern part of Maui, Haleakala, the dormant volcano, in order to “Get an idea of what Maui really is.” His words.
I thought it a great idea, even when he mentioned we’d be spending the night in Hana. At the time, I didn’t give it any thought.
Click the plus mark to zoom in a bit to see the road – at this part, the Hana Highway, around the island. When we get to the far side of Haleakala the road becomes the Piilani Highway.
But then Jim said, “A room with two beds.”
Whew. Dodged that bullet. For now. Am I ready to sleep with this guy? I’m not sure…
Jim took me out to a romantic dinner, looking out on the Ocean and Hana Bay. When we got back to the hotel he carried a couple of chairs up onto the hillside and we watched the waves roll in on the beach as the moon came up.
When we finally went to bed, at the late, late hour of 9 pm, Jim was a perfect gentleman.
