Spring Time on Maui’s Northshore
As winter comes to an end on Maui, you start to notice that spring is approaching. One of the early signs is the shower trees are starting to blossom all over the island. I love the pink shower trees with their vibrant colors. One thing that I do every spring is drive up to Kula Maui to take pictures of the Jacaranda trees flowering, they are just stunning. Starting at the King K high school, all the way out to Ulupalakua Ranch you will be amazed at the sight of these beautiful trees. Just last year I planted a Jacaranda tree in my yard I love them so much. I do have Hong Kong Orchids trees, and a couple shower tress, love the display of blossoms going off.
Another sign of spring is the trade winds returning after a poor showing this winter. Windsurfers and kite boarders love spring on Maui. There are still waves and wind on the Northshore of Maui. You also have all the windsurf companies showing up to take photos of all the new product lines for water sports. We just had the DaKine marketing team staying at our Pineapple Cottage vacation rental in Haiku. They brought in a team to work with local watermen and women to display their products on-line and to feature in magazines.
For me it’s a shift from surfing all winter, to getting my windsurf gear out and enjoying the water when I am not selling real estate on Maui. Spring is also a changing of the guard, where the winter snowbirds return to their summer homes, and people trade in their ski equipment for kiteboards and windsurfing gear. It’s like the Geese returning to their summer grounds.
So if you’re looking at visiting Maui, you might keep Pineapple Cottage vacation rental in Haiku Maui as a tropical getaway for Spring time. The Northshore of Maui is a very cool place, with lots of interesting things to do. Paia Maui is such an international destination with people from all over the world.
