Hawaii Day 2

every US state has at least one straight line as part of its boundary, except for hawaii #hawaiifactsless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

On our second morning in Hawaii we headed into Lahaina, a few miles south of where we were staying. This coastal town was the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii back in the day, but today it's a compact tourist town of about 10,000 locals and probably twice as many visitors. Here's Wendy and Lux leaving breakfast:

Like most of Hawaii, the place is insanely verdant and lush. Every plant you see is having the best day of its life, including the 140-year-old Banyan tree in the courthouse square. This tree too is having an awesome time:

and so is this garden:

I put a few more pictures of Lahaina on Flickr.

In the afternoon we headed down to Wailea, which turned out to be (as far as I could tell) Beverly Hills crossed with Pebble Beach. Nonetheless we found a public area and Wendy helped Lux cover herself in sand while I had a swim in the ocean.

We finished the day with a dip in the pool back at our hotel. Here's Lux post-swim in her swimsuit:
