Recently Maui County began building a sort of boardwalk along a portion of Ma’alaea Beach (north of Kihei) adjacent to Kealia Pond. It hasn’t officially opened because, like a lot of things that happen on "island time," it isn’t finished yet. So far, it has been under construction for close to three years.
One thing you have to get used to when you live in Hawaii, and Maui in particular, is how slow everyone moves. Four years and counting, and I still can’t move that slow. I would have to get a full frontal lobotomy to move that slow, but that is conjecture on my part.
