Lunch at Monsoon India is many things:
- Delicious (their masala is creamy and nurturing, their naan crispy in the right places and doughy in the right places)
- Breezy (they are in North Kihei right on the shore, so the Ma’alaea winds are nearly always present)
- Gorgeous (the interior is not what it could be, but their glass walls and wide open windows give unobstructed views of the harbor and the West Maui Mountains)
Today, lunch at Monsoon India featured kabobs, naan, and samosas. But don’t ask me for details … James and I were distracted by the newborn humpback whale breaching and flapping his tail just offshore.
He made a most cheerful lunch companion, and reminded me of how lucky we are to see whales everyday for six months out of every year.
In case you haven’t seen a baby humpback whale breach, I found this video on youtube. It’s taken from a boat in Ma’alaea harbor, and the background is the same one we watched today. Watch it and feel the joy!
