Day Five: Iao Needle, Maui Tropical Plantation, D.T. Flemming again

Day five is the day our parents left so we did some touring just us kids. The first day we got to sleep in! … and we only really slept until about 8:30. So before lunch we went to the Iao Valley Park and saw the Iao needle, a big mossy projection that’s become a tourist attraction… pretty cool looking and the state park is quite pretty! Then we went to the Maui Tropical Plantation where they grow tons of fruit and herbs! We got on a little train that toured around the whole plantation, took about 30 minutes and taught us a lot about the fruits grown on Maui, educational and fun!! After the plantation we went to the little town of Paia and had lunch at the flatbread company, we had found it online before we got to Maui and HAD to try it, so yummy and great service! If you’re ever in Maui make the short drive to Paia and go to the Flatbread Company. We finished up our day with some body surfing and boogie boarding at DT fleming… again!
