Lahaina Maui

A short trip to Lahaina. See Town of Lahaina Information, Tips & More | Maui Hawaii ( There is a Lahaina Historic Walking Tour | Lahaina Attractions Map ( It seemed like everywhere we went we saw rainbows. Seeing a double one was special.

Kipahulu National Park

By noon we arrived at Kīpahulu District – Haleakalā National Park (U.S. National Park Service) ( around noon (still on the Hana Highway). I did not hike the steep 2 miles up to Waimoku Falls because it was only 3 months since my broken hip. We did the lovely half mile Kuoa Point loop trail by the O’heo Gulch instead.

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…

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.

Cold Spring and Cove Neck

Cold Spring Harbor, Nassau County, Long Island, NY About The Village | Cold Spring, NY was the start of a lovely day. We ate lunch at a lovely restaurant, the Harbor Mist, by Oyster Bay inlet on the Long Island Sound. There is a little park there dedicated to Billy Joel. Cold Spring Harbor was the name of Billy Joel’s first album in November 1, 1971.

Next we drove to Cove Neck on the opposite shore to see Sagamore Hill. Sagamore Hill was the home of Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, from 1885 until his death in 1919. There is lots of history and pictures at the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, NPS site. I installed The NPS App – Digital (U.S. National Park Service) app and watched VR tours of Sagamore Hill National Historic Site.
