North of Ka’anapali the road narrows, and ends up as one lane. There are rules to take care of the situation when two vehicles meet: the car heading uphill has the right of passage, and the other car or SUV needs to back up. This gets pretty tricky on these curvy roads along the cliffs. Faith in the driver is a must, and the views are worth it.
Tiny Baby Pineapple. So Cute!
Powerful waves along the Kapalua Coast

Stopping along the way I could see tourists snorkeling, and traveling on mopeds. Julia’s, a vendor located along the northern coast is mentioned in my tourbook as a “must see” experience. The best banana bread in the world, coconut candy that is very addictive. I hope I didn’t lose her card because the tourbook is right. I am not fond of coconut, but this dried and sweetened candy is hard to pass up.
Tourists on mopeds. May be a better way to manuever on narrow road.
Worth the trip! Coconut candy. Yum!
Julia has served travelers for many years!
Throughout my travel on the Island I want to include people in my photos. In Lahaina there is a Banyan tree that takes up the entire plaza. Here is a great place to people watch, and I did just that.

Some left their mark on the roots of the Banyan Tree.
Walking along the touristy street I want to see art work created here. I didn’t want any souvenirs made overseas. I saw a turtule made locally, but I passed up the opportunity, and later could not find it. So tee shirts it would be.
