Another day spent with family. We rented an Escalade so I could finally live my Tony Soprano dreams… Breakfast at Kihei Caffe was amazing. The best breakfast we’ve had in ages. Just awesome. After breakfast we hit the road and drove the West Maui loop counterclockwise before stopping in Lahaina for a swim at Baby Beach, shave ice at Local Boys, and pizza at Lahaina Pizza Company. Deep dish gooey goodness. Some more driving took us to Paia to check out Maui Cyclery – the shop that supports the camp. A quick drive back to Wailea with a stop at a roadside coconut stand completed our afternoon. I could write a few pages on the experience with Randy at the coconut stand. He is a real gem – great with the kids and the machete! He took us through the whole growing, harvesting and eating process of coconuts. And he shared loads of history and stories. Definitely the highlight of a great day with my family. The evening featured the welcome reception – that we missed last year because of a delayed flight. This was our chance to meet the other campers, the pros and the support team. It’s a smaller group this year but everyone seems friendly and fun. Team meeting tomorrow at 9:00am; riding starts at 9:30. I can’t hardly wait.
