Old Lahaina Luau in Maui

The Old Lahaina Luau (check out this link – lots of information) is the most authentic and traditional one in Maui. I loved that they covered the history of the dance and more. It was educational as well as entertaining. The excellent servers were gorgeous and the food top notch. It just kept coming…

Central and West Maui

Scenes along the coast of Maui. This is a continuation of our drive on day three. Some of the drive was a little hairy – no Armco next to drop-offs down to the sea. The scenery is spectacular. There were lots of tourists at the Nakalele Blowhole.

I saw the same butterflies I see in the US: Monarchs, Painted Ladies, Orange and Yellow Sulphur’s, and little Blues.

Maui Nui and Travels

It was rainy off and on the third day. The Maui Nui Botanical Garden was a small native plant garden and a bit disappointing. We stopped for lunch at one of the many excellent food trucks.. Then we started an adventurous drive around the Central and Western coast of Maui. Some of it is dirt road.

Kanaha Pond and Beach in Maui

Early on the third day we wen tot bird at Kanaha pond. I saw a couple of Hawaiian Nene geese there. After that we drove to the kite Beach along the central Coast of Maui. Red Junglefowl are everywhere – in restaurants, at the beach, in the parks, and along the roadside.

Kihei Maui

We stayed at the Schooner Resort in Lahaina. The suite was lovely and the pool and other amenities where nice. Everything was prefect except of one small incident. The cleaning staff lost my swimsuit during our room change mid stay (we were there for two weeks). Management kindly refunded me. I had to swim in my shorts. It all worked out OK.

On the first morning after a walk to along the beach by the resort in Waipuilani Park. Then we drove to Kealia Pond to look for indigenous birds. I got two of them there. I didn’t notice any Hawaiian ducks there.

Lahaina Maui

We enjoyed the old buildings and history in Lahaina on our second day in Maui. See Flag of Hawaii – Wikipedia. We met Marc’s cousin Margaret and her mate there for lunch. Most of the shops along Front Street are tacky.

Lahaina in Maui Doors

This is the first of many posts from our vacation in Maui, Hawaii in November 2022. I read James Mitchener’s Hawaii before our trip. That long and detailed book filled me in on all the history. The Baldwins were missionaries. They lived in Lahaina.
