Last week you could have spotted me baking in the sun in a striped one piece by Seea with eyes and head protection provided by; Dita and Gladys Tamez, at ‘Baby Beach’ which is what it sounds like… Tons of little humans bopping about in the ocean because there is a stone wall that blocks the giant “Jaws” waves that are in the Paia area.

Two places worth checking out if you are in Haiku, are; ‘Temple Of Peace’, where you can find spiritual gems, jewelry, books, etc.. They also offer yoga classes, and a there is a masseuse and little spa on site.  ‘Maui Kombucha’ is the second place I would highly recommend checking out… They make their kombucha in house, and create delicious flavors such as; Pineapple Kombucha, Blueberry Kombucha, and also make tasty raw dishes like, Coconut Ceviche, Lavender Pie, Eggless Salad a ton of other yummies.

I started yesterday with the best restaurant on the island, Mama’s Fish House (obviously)… The tomato ginger soup, and lilikoi creme brulee really do not ever get old, or sour… I’m flopping over still in a food coma writing this from my bed.
I figured I would save my most touristy shirt for the occasion, which I clearly purchased in Maui. Pairing this button down with a pair of vintage high-waisted Levis, a pair of electric neon Converse, oversized Dita sunnies, a stunning Gladys Tamez straw hat.

After Mama’s Fish House I went to another amazing house, aka the ‘Leilani Farm Sanctuary’. This beautiful home to; Goats, Donkeys, Chickens, Roosters, Tortoises, Bunnies, a beautiful Deer, Pigs, and Cats.
The animals are free and safe to roam their loving home. Their eyes glisten with so much love it is so indescribable. These animals have no fear, in fact they’re quite fearless around humans and want to play and share all of their joy for being alive and in the best hands. Each animal has a name and a safe community that will never turn it’s back on them. It is quite fascinating seeing the interaction between all of the animals, and seeing the way they react to us being in their territory. They are so welcoming and sweet! A few of these animals have found their way to the Sanctuary, some of them have been given to the Sanctuary and a lot of them have been neglected by their previous owners, and rescued by the owner of this beautiful refugee, Laurelee… She will tell you each beautiful creatures story, and share with you hers as well.

Tours are offered on Wednesdays at 4 PM, and Saturdays at 10 AM.
Hawaii is just a hop, skip and a jump away so if you are a huge animal lover, I recommend swinging by, it is only a $20 donation for ultimate bliss at this Non-Profit Organization.

You can call or E-mail Call 298-8544 or email to find out more information.

When I was a little girl I used to dream of living on a farm, with all different animals. Laurelee, gets to live this dream for me, and you get to walk through it with her if you book a tour date.
