Kihei contains many of the “better” public beaches, a few dive bars, and tons of tourist shopping. If you’re looking for a coconut handbag or shell encrusted hangy chimmy thingy, this is the place. But most of all its close to ma’dudes work. So we can get to the beach or whatever that much quicker. Time sensitive sun setting and the like. Yesterday I ventured the distance on my bike. It was only ten miles and its not like I had to ride back. But its a start and damn it if that wasn’t a great time. The bugs in my teeth remind me of the shit eating grin that must have been plastered on my face. Mountains all around, no stops for 6 miles. Flat paved bike road. Wind might have been an issue but this ride it was on my side.
