Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): Some pictures of Lahaina Maui Hawaii.

Some pictures of Lahaina Maui Hawaii.

Driving to Lahaina for lunch

Just yesterday I found myself on a sudden drive over to Lahaina town, on the west side of Maui.  We had to pick up a piece of equipment, for a backhoe, and after business was done, we wound up on Front Streetin Lahaina for a bite of lunch.  This colorful historic old whaling town has plenty of shops and restaurants.  We ate at Bubba Gump's, right on the seawall with oceanfront dining.  Why didn't I take a picture of the pear/berry salad I had?  It was yummy.

That's Front Street that has the seawall, and the old buildings along the shore.  The huge tree makes shade over the open air market that sells trinkets to the tourists.

I don't usually blog about West Maui, but it is so scenic I just had to share some of these pictures.

Usually you'll find me on the north shore in Paia and Haiku

Aloha from Maui!

Hey looks like a fun place to visit. Bubbba Gump's reminds me of Captain Dee's with beer.

BJ - There is also a very famous tree in Lahaina - the banyan tree on Front Street, right in the center of town.  It's a great gathering place, nice and shady and cool.  I'll take you there!

Ohhh so nice.  It's been about 10 years since I was there, but I remember it fondly.  We wend to Maui and Kuai .  Absolutely gorgeous there!!!

Ahhhh.  that brings back great memories.  I can hardly wait to get back.  I had so much fun visiting the shops and the Art Galleries... and the food was wonderful.  Thanks for sharing!

Leslie - and what about the beaches, the sunsets, the margaritas?

Posted by Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089, Maui Real Estate sales and lifestyle info (Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers) over 10 years ago

Looks like a very peaceful place to visit and vacation.  The shops are definetely fun  as you can get things there (not found elsewhere) to impress your friends by when you get back to the mainland.  Bookmarked this blog. Thanks for showing us a beautiful part of Maui, one which seems untainted and as peaceful as it may once have been several decades ago stilll.

Beautiful!

Castellum - yes Maui is still pretty low key and peaceful, though Lahaina can get pretty rowdy at times.

Mott - nice to see you drop by

Great photos. I've never seen a tree like that!

Posted by STACEY KING (Wells Fargo Home Mortgage) about 10 years ago

Just got back from a week there - wish I was still there. Thanks for the pics. We stayed away from Bubba's but did manage a burger at Cheeseburger in Paradise, dinner at the Aloha Mix Plate and a great dinner at the Lahaina Fish Co on the water. Love the Banyan - first saw it 20+ years ago and am so glad it's still growing and shading the art festival. A lovely part of the world you live in. I did 4 or 5 blogs from Kauai and Maui while I was there. What fun.

Stacey - it's pretty isn't it?

Gene - Maui has a way of making you feel really sad when you leave.  But the good news is, you'll feel really good when you come back!  I'll look for your Maui posts.
