Here are the old coral blocks in Lahaina. At first glance they look like old bales of straw.
While in Lahaina, it's a must that we head to this restaurant for lunch. The best Chopped Steak!
Hibiscus are everywhere, and this bush was loaded with blossoms at Sugar Beach Resort.
Nothing compares to the smell of Plumeria. My guy surprised me by picking and stringing enough blooms to make me a lei. I wore it proudly, and enjoyed every whiff of this amazing aroma.
I found this fabulous piece of green coral, along with these few funky pieces of the ubiquitous orange and white. I took it home via a photo. We left them for the next visitor to enjoy.
I love this shot, the sun shining through the palm leaves.
Although poinsettias thrive in Hawaii, our friend has a hedge of them in her yard, this picture was taken of one from a local greenhouse.
With only a week between returning home and Christmas, and finding this huge poinsettia, I have decided to use this as my tree. Add a few quilts, some Christmas pillow cases and, voilà, it's Christmas in the condo.
And I couldn't pass up a class on Hawaiian applique while in Maui. Once quilted, it will join my stack of Christmas pillow cases.
Merry Christmas and all the best in 2017!
