Anna and Becky in Hawaii: Day 2

We drove into Lahaina yesterday, and spent most of the morning and afternoon exploring the town. They have a bunch of neat shops in the main downtown area, but we also got to see the Jodo Mission and the Banyan Tree on opposite ends of the town.

We ended the afternoon with swimming at Hanakao’o Park.

Anna’s Hawaiian Vacation: Day 5

We started today with a Segway tour of Lahaina.  After a short tutorial on how to ride a Segway, our tour guide took us all over the town! Our first stop was at the Lahaina Jodo Mission, a Buddhist temple home to one of the largest Buddha statues outside of Asia.  We continued past the historic district and stopped at the Great Banyan Tree for a photo before returning our Segways.

After lunch, we went to Maui’s Big Beach for the rest of the afternoon.  This beach has some powerful waves that are great for bodysurfing, if you don’t mind getting tumbled around a bit.

Today’s photos are mostly from the Segway tour, but there are a few of Big Beach at the end:
