Imagine Maui with very limited access to the beautiful beaches around it. Imagine it very crowded that you can’t see the ocean while driving down the road. Imagine… Can you? I can’t. Or at least I wouldn’t even want to. Part of  Maui’s beauty is it’s open space, it’s beautiful beaches and access to it. And I would want my kids, and my grandkids, to experience the same.  This is why I am participating in this Buy Back The Beach Benefit Luau. To help me organize my thoughts, I decided to break them into “Five”
