About as dull as last night's sunset.
First pick-up was out of Wailea about 7:45p to OGG. Decent. My next fare wasn't until 10:15p. Ouch!
The bar rush started shortly past 10p and lasted until 11:30p. Nobody moved for the next hour. At 12:30a we started the bar close. Captured 4 in the rush and 3 in the close. Plus 2 dog-watchers.
The final 3 fares were the ones of interest.
A 1:47a run from Mulligans-on-the-Blue to central Kihei with a stop in Maui Meadows. The female part of the equation is kama'aina and is getting married, in September, to a nice guy from Mulligans. She had offered to share a ride with a kama'aina male so he wouldn't have to wait for a cab. She sat up front with me while he was doing his best to flirt with her. She wasn't nearly as drunk as I have seen her before and she politely, and continuously, refused his advances. We dropped him at the only gated community we have on this side of Mau'i that isn't in Wailea and proceeded to her apartment. She chattered , endlessly, about her forthcoming nuptials. "Excited" would be an understatement.
The first graveyard trip were 4 pretty young things from Queensland, Australia. First night on the island and they had been checking out the "stud line" at the bars. During our trip, they asked about various activities they should do to enhance their holiday. I recited my standard suggested itinerary.
- Front Street.
Every one last night was polite and well behaved. No matter how intoxicated they were. Made for a pleasant night.
11 fares / 116 miles / third quarter of the $100 bracket
***Everybody have a great day.
