Team Christenson just got back from another
vacation adventure to Maui, HI. We didn’t get much sleep [at all], but had a complete blast. Did lots of beach sessions, hiking, surf trips, scuba dives, fishing, seafood eating, whale watching, and other random acts of awesomeness on this trip. Here’s some of our favorite images from our time together. (FYI, the 3 square images next to each other throughout this blog post are all Instagram-ed)
Drove around the island for a day of waterfall swimmin’ and bamboo forest hikin’. That (bottom left) is Charlotte, our youngest, takin’ a nap in the trunk of our rental van… don’t worry, it was parked, with the hatch open, under a tree, in the shade :)
Our girls, Charlotte (1 yr old) and Joelle (3 yrs old), weren’t the biggest fans of water on this trip for some reason… probably b/c it was “winter” and the water was only like “80 degrees” ;) We had the crazy privilege of boarding a privately owned yacht for two days of epic adventure out at sea (below). We were super duper “models” for a marketing shoot for the boat… so we got to fish, scuba dive, whale watch, snorkel with turtles and even swim with 75+ spinner dolphins off the island of Lanai. It’s an amazing boat! Luxurious AND loaded with every tool you might need for a fun adventure. It felt both awesome and weird living someone else’s reality for a few days.
Did some Stand Up Paddling together (mostly just swam around and hung out)… SUP-ing is all the rage now-a-days.
Charlotte was pretty stoked at the beach, and ate lots of sand :)
Lots of fresh fruit, shave ice and early mornings with the girls (up before the sun the majority of the trip).
Back on the boat for day two of playin’ in the big blue ocean.
The following images were captured by David Hessemer from the photoshoot :) Saw lots of whales breaching and even a few baby whales and dolphins (right images in the couple frames below)
Back on land we snuck away to a private beach house near Makena for a few afternoons of swimming and swinging.
Played with a GoPro for an afternoon. Here’s Court body surfing a li’l wave (below). Check out some of the videos here.
