We drove around top (west) of island today.
Steve wanted to take a look at some of the surfing (not that he was going to surf, of course) and see what kind of pictures he could get.
Unfortunately, the really good waves are further east, going towards Paia and Hana.
It was a fairly nice drive though.
One thing you have to know about Maui you don’t drive anywhere fast. Partially because there’s a lot of traffic and partially because the roads aren’t really laid out that well. For instance: If you are driving in the up country, near the Tedeschi Winery, it’s only a few miles from Wilea … but since there’s no road that goes that way, you have to drive all the way to Kahalui before you can double back. It’s about 30 miles and an hours drive to go the 3 miles.
Since it’s Friday, and Stargate is on, we decided to eat in tonight Costco has some really good looking ahi tuna that we cooked on the condo grill. Ginny and I learned a really good (and easy) technique for cooking Ahi Tuna on the grill that works quite well.
We marinated the tuna for about 30 minutes in some asian flavored salad dressing, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and other bits. We pre-heated the grill to as hot it could get and cook the steaks for 90 seconds on each side. They usually come out quite nicely browned on the outside and rare on the inside.
Then we watched Stargates SG-1 & Atlantis and the new Battlestar Galactica.
Such an exciting Friday, eh?
