I discovered just how easy it is to travel to and from the West Coast these days. We didn’t have to take a red-eye out of Lihue and lose precious sleep, requiring a couple days recovery. Not only that but we booked very affordable flights through Hawaiian Air, making a long weekend to/from Hawaii a very real possibility.

This is one of the things I love about Lahaina: the depth of the place. You cannot walk down Front Street without running into it. The town has history. It oozes from the break wall running in front of the wooden storefronts. It seeps from the rock and coral Masters’ Reading Room, built in 1834.

When I arrived at slip number 17 at Lahaina Wharf to check in for my whale watching boat tour, it was mid-morning and clouds drizzled down the West Maui mountains behind me. It had rained hard overnight. But looking out to sea, the sky was blue. I hoped the skies would remain their blue color, but the bruised clouds behind me were making a convincing argument otherwise.

But in addition to stats and photographs, the paved hiking trail that switchbacks up Makapuu in one big “z” holds stories. Like the one about the distinctive opening of Koko Crater, known as Kohelepelepe, which translates to English as “traveling vagina.” The story goes that the clever goddess Kapo exposed her private bits in order to save her sister Pele from the clutches of Kamapuaa, the pig god. Is anyone surprised that this diversion tactic worked? To celebrate, Kapo left her mark—the rocky cliff in the shape of, well, you get the idea.

This lovely image by my co-worker Nancy Daniels was taken on Oahu. Can you identify the location? What I like about this image is the absolute stillness it evokes--of the tempestuous Pacific Ocean, no less. For the third year now, Outrigger is making available images like these to keep Hawaii close to your heart--and hand and eyes. These images are available to download and use as your computer's wallpaper.
