Hawaii Day 11: Maui Ocean Center, Ocean View Lunch and A Walk at Wailea

We want to take things easy today and have some kid fun activities aside from beach or pool. So, we went to the aquarium – Maui Ocean Center.

Before heading to the aquarium,  we stopped for breakfast at the busy Kihei Cafe.

I never been a fan of loco moco but I ordered it hoping I’ll like it at Kihei Café but no, still not a fan after this. For some reason,  we didn’t get the hype. We only liked their fruit smoothie.

Maui Ocean Center. Our kid enjoyed watching the fishes. We spent about 2.5 hours here.

After the aquarium, we headed to the Banyan Tree Park at Lahaina Town for a little walk. There were art vendors and local music performers.

For lunch, we went to Kimo’s. We liked the foods. The only thing I could complain is the keiki’s(kid’s) mac and cheese. It looked like a mac n cheese from the box for $6.50. Though my kid ate it since he was tired and hungry from running around.

Bbq was good.

Then, we went to supermarket called Foodland to grab drinks and food for dinner.  They have fresh tuna poke and sushi. They ran out of fresh shoyu poke so we just got their sushi and sandwich. After unloading the groceries, we headed at Shops at Wailea. It was walking distance from the rental condo.

We just went there for a walk, grabbed some ice creams at Lappert’s Ice Cream and window shopped.

The cookie dough was delicious. I got this Tutu’s anniversary sorbet and it was okay. We had their mango and cream flavor at Lahaina earlier today and it was yummy.

The only stuff I shop on vacations are specialty goodies to bring and give away back home. At this shopping center they have ABC and Whaler’s stores for Hawaiian souvenirs and goodies. We’ll get the goodies before we leave.

It was almost sunset, so we went to soft, golden brown sand Ulua Beach Park.
