Weekly Photo Challenge – Repurpose

We frequently take our vacation in Maui, Hawaii. Maui is not a big island. We could casually go around the island in a few days, and still have plenty of time to walk on the beach and watch the sunset everyday. We got married on Makena Beach, so we visit that beach on every trip. Makena is not a sand beach, it has a lot of lava rocks instead. From Makena, we like to get on the Road to Hana. As soon as we get on the road, we could see the lava rocks on both side of the road. The local people were creative, they repurpose the lava rocks into walls for construction, protection, or decoration.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Beach Wedding

It was simply a beach wedding without human audience. The officiator, the sky, the clouds, the ocean, the trees, the lava rocks, and the sand, were our witnesses. It happened in Maui, Hawaii twenty some years ago. We wanted to have a beach wedding. We then came back home to have our reception at a hotel for all of our family and friends.

During the last twenty some years, we went back to Maui several times, visited the same beach to refresh our memory, and renew our vows to each other.

Maui, Hawaii is considered as our favorite travel spot since we had been there three times. We always stayed at Kihei which has less tourism.

The photos were taken from the same beach which is filled with lava rocks. During our last trip, the storm was on the way. Part of the sky showed rain clouds against the blue sky, whereas the beach is filled with lava rocks.
