Maui, HI

On January 19, 2013, my good friend, Lillian Russell, and I left on a seven day cruise of the Hawaiian Islands on the Norwegian Cruise Line "The Pride of America". What a trip this was - we had an absolute blast.

I couldn't resist capturing the lovely red blossoms of the African Tulip Tree in the middle.

Lahaina was the first capital of Hawaii and looks very much like a wonderful, old seaside town located in the tropics. As it was Martin Luther King day, the first thing we did was attend an art festival that was being held in the city park behind the old capital.


The entire town is laid out on the waterfront which is most charming as all shops, etc. face west and the sunsets are stunning. Being avid sailors, Lillian and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Lahaina Yacht Club in the middle where we dined facing the sea. Lovely indeed.
