Wailea Daily Photo
Photoblog of Maui, Hawaii
The sugar refinery plant is a famous Maui landmark, and one of the best places to capture a photo of it is on a winding back road, a famous short cut to eliminate the traffic you will encounter traveling through Kahului, the main business district of Maui.

Whales make a footprint which is visible on the surface of the water-- a circular area where the surface of the water is smoother than the surrounding water. The whale's tail creates a vortex as it moves through the water just below the surface.

For The Love
Yesterday my partner and I were shopping at Costco in Kahului when we spotted this AMAZING service dog with his friend. We were both struck by the PRESENCE of this dog, and actually it seemed as if this dog was more like an angel in a dog's body! The way this very special service dog walked...the aura...the energy...well, I was blown away, and since I'm more of the introverted, sensitive type and am lucky to have an extroverted partner, I asked him if he wouldn't ask this man and very special dog for a photo. He obliged, and then he requested his companion to sit down for this photograph.
I can feel the love and respect these two have for one another in this photo.

Whenever M. visits Maui, we dine at her favorite restaurant in Ka'anapali, Basil Tomatoes Italian Grille. Ka'anapali was once the playground for Hawaiian Royalty.

After The Rain--The Blooms
Many plants are blooming on Maui and at our home--assisted, no doubt, by the generous rainfall of recent weeks. The mosquito plants on one of our decks are blooming tiny pink flowers. I just planted these mosquito plants about a year ago, and since that time, they've grown a LOT.
Mosquito plants are so named because they keep away mosquitoes. Click here if you'd like to read more about mosquito plants.
