Honolulu’s Colin Morita, 9, and sister Isabelle, 7, examine the underside of a replica Hawaiian coot Tuesday afternoon while visiting the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge’s visitor center. Colin said the highlight of their trip was visiting the tide pools near Sugar Beach at low tide, where they saw many different kinds of sea animals. Mom, Won Morita, said the family’s first trip to Maui will not be its last. “We really like it here,” she said. “We’re looking forward to coming back.“ Due to recent rains, the refuge off Mokulele Highway is in prime condition for a visit. It is open weekdays, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the visitor center and its bright interpretive displays open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
