We all ate pizza at Flatbread Pizza company in Paia for lunch. It's a cool little restaurant where everything on their menu is organic and local. Very cool. Afterwards, we were looking to waste a few hours before heading to the airport. We didn't want to get dirty, wet, or hot since we no longer had access to a hotel to clean up before making the trip home -- this severely limited our options on the island. Our waitress recommended that we go to Ho'okipa beach to watch the windsurfers. It was a perfect idea! There were about 50 windsurfers in one small little area, and they put on quite a show. It was really a great way to end our vacation.
So after a quickie dinner, we grudgingly went back to Kahului airport to begin our cross-country trek. The Powells headed off to Kauai where they will be spending another 5 days. This was such an awesome vacation. We hated to leave.... but were a little anxious to get home to see our little boy, who turns 15-MONTHS OLD TODAY!! :)
