Just a girl rambling around the globe and writing about it.

Musings from around the block and farther.

Dragon's Teeth

Maui is a mixture of softness (balmy tradewinds, perfectly slushy Hawaiian shave ice and pina coladas, melt-in-your-mouth banana bread, ukulele lullabies, fragrant plumeria blossoms falling from trees) and strength (jagged lava rocks, pummeling ocean waves, thick, muscular Hawaiian men and women). 

On the edge of the Ritz-Carlton property at Kapalua – you have to park in the middle, then walk across a beautifully manicured golf course – is a natural wonder called Dragon’s Teeth.  On the edge of a cliff, a pathway of crooked lava rock “teeth” juts up from the sea, a reminder that the ocean can swallow you whole, but it just might chew you up first.
