Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): My first ActiveRain encounter! - It's REAL on Maui

My first ActiveRain encounter! - It's REAL on Maui

kuau - a small beach on maui 's north shore near paia  

first activerain meeting on maui

I had my first ActiveRain meeting the other day.  I have graduated to a new level  for an ActiveRain newbie.... lol.  It was unreal.

Gena Riede from Sacramento contacted me before she came to Maui and we managed to hook up over here for a lunch date at Mama's Fish House Restaurant in Paia.  She had the stuffed mahimahi and I had the ahi sashimi salad and the shrimp wontons... delicious.  Thanks for the great time Gena!  She had been to Maui 17 years ago and has been just waiting to come back to this famous beachside dining spot on Maui's north shore.  I like to eat here whenever I get a chance. 

Gena beat me to the post with her great pictures, and a post called WEST MEETS WESTER.  We both took some pictures of the encounter, the restaurant and the beach.  How do you like them? 

We'll get together again before she leaves the island.  I am in awe that she has been a member since almost the beginning.  I have only been here less than 3 months.  This is a great start to a wonderful networking opportunity for me.  THANKS ActiveRain.

It was great to talk to her, and tell her about the things that make Maui a special place to live and visit.  I got to listen to her Maui stories too.  If you're coming to Maui, I hope you will also contact me and we can  talk story.  I have lived here since 1980 and we have been buying real estate here since 1981.

Some of my other posts about the north shore here on Maui:

Ho'okipa Beach Park - less than a mile from here

Stable Road, Spreckelsville - a prime beachfront neighborhood

Hi Kathy - thanks for coming by and checking it out.  You MUST try the food at Mama's next time you come here.

Georgina - How exciting . . .to see someone you know online.  Our world may seem large, but it's really very small.

Mahimahi in Maui is my favorite food.  My husband, Jim, and I watched the sun set a couple of times eating at a restaurant right on the water in Maui.  We were married Kauai in 1984. Great times . . .great memories!!

Have a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

That's cool. Nice to hear about meetings. Must have been fun. I know exactly the restaurant you are referring to. We ate a mama's fish house this past September. It was expensive, but well worth it. I had a fish that I can't remember the name of anymore... I think it sounded something like 'ookoo'. (not sure how to spell it). I like that they tell you the name, boat, day of the fisherman that caught it.

Meg - Maui Christmas to you too!

Charlie - thanks for stopping by.

Konnie - I look forward to meeting both of you

Dale - thanks and same to you.

Matthew - I'm a believer now.

Angie - that would be Uku - it's a snapper, and very delicious and tender

Happy holidays everyone!

Awesome!  I'll be in Maui before long and will look you up.  A friend of mine ended up in Lahaina(sp) and teaches yoga.

Georgina, it was wonderful meeting you and I had such a great time with you at Mama's Fish House. Must remember to call and preorder my banana creme pie for the 29th when I arrive in Paia. Hope you have time to show me a little real estate while I am here. Here's hoping that you have many more AR encounters.

Gena I could very easily show you some homes in the Paia area.  Just let me know what time of day is suitable for you.  At this point by day is wide open, but that could change.  : )

Great that you had the opportunity to meet Gena I lover her posts.  Isn't great when you meet a real live rainer....to me a great feeling.  Happy New Year Georgina...look forward to a successful 2008.
