Our first full day in Hawaii – BTW, we’re on Maui, apparently I forgot to tell you that – we drove about 45 minutes to the town of Lahaina.
Lahaina was apparently the original capital city of the state of Hawaii, the capital being moved in the mid 1800s. The town suffered a devastating fire in the early 1900s, was subsequently rebuilt and is now a charming tourist/marina center.
We wandered the streets:
Had a leisurely lunch:
|This is one of a chain of restaurants opened by 2 California girls, because they couldn’t find a cheeseburger when on a Maui vacation. There are now 8 of these throughout Hawaii, California and Nevada.|
So old it needs props for some of its limbs (kind of like some of us):
On our way back, we stopped at a lookout – to view Kihei (the town near the condo) across the bay:
Happy touring! Blessings, Peg
