Coconut, Coconut and Papaya - a trip to Maui 2

Day 3: Our next destination was Kipahulu. Of course it is often the way which makes the journey and we stopped at a beach near Koki beach and had a splendid time. The kids did not want to leave, but Frank had a surprise up his sleeve - the Venus Pool. See pics, there is no way to describe it, it is a real gem and for adventurous folks without fear of heights just about the right thing.

P all crazy about the jumping.
And Frank of course :).
Coconut, coconut.

Right at the pool is a small fruit stand, with an honesty box, I would say a perfect location. We opened the nut ourselves and took a papaya and some bananas for later. On the car ride from there to the next stop the kids were chanting: "Coconut, coconut and papaya" - and it became our vacation mantra.
Our last stop before the campground was a waterfall, small hike and some swimming.

Some tree climbing.
We camped the night at the Kipahulu campground with a camp site right at the ocean. Private beach access so to say. The coast here is very rough and swimming is dangerous, but we are on a volcanic island and ever so often the lava built up little pools, one of them right there for us to enjoy with tiny little fish to see and a turtle greeting us in the evening and morning.

It's just what it looks like - perfect!
