Our trip brought us to Lahaina, on Maui. One of the oldest settlements in Hawaii, it was once the royal capital of Maui Loa.
Today it is a center of tourism (as is most of Hawaii).
We were anchored just off shore where we had great views of the houses and boats along the coast.
Another day – another great Hawaiian rainbow.
Meanwhile the first mate casually monitored the situation.
While the crew readied the skiffs.
Once on the skiff, we headed towards shore.
But first, a dolphin show (not planned, just lucky).
Once on ground, we made our way to the famed Banyan tree of Lahaina. Planted in 1873, it is the largest banyan tree in America, covering almost 2 acres.
We took a walk around town…
To check out some of the historic buildings…
Including the former prison.
Some colorful houses.
And a great mailbox.
Eventually it was time to leave Lahaina.
With one last look…
We sailed off into the sunset.
