Photos of a Week Around Maui with Sis 2/09-2/16

Here are photos from different locations around the Island as I ran about with my Sistah during her week of vacation...

LEFT: Red Liliko'i or Passionfruit Flower                   
RIGHT: I Don't know what it is, but it looks like Audrey 2 from LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS

LEFT: Bell-shaped flowers from a wild succulent     
RIGHT: As I was told, the rock formation is of a fallen man who lived on the hillside and
           was overtaken by a lava flow when the volcano exploded. It is tradition to leave a
           little gift: I a red hibiscus flower and Dana a Chiclet

Orange lichen on a tree trunk - great design inspiration!

Two wooden figures that greet you at the 'Ulupalakua Ranch Store

This applies to all of you cowgirls as well!

Ahead: A grove of eucalyptus trees lining the road leaving 'Ulupalakua

More design reference - do you see the butterflies as I do?

A herd of pipi, and white egrets that hang around to forage for bugs that are flushed out as the cattle graze

Kahului bay, the airport (red roofs; left), runway and tower taken from Upcountry Maui

The new turbines being built

With a little help from Photoshop these might make incredible stripes in a future collection!

Last but not least: my office mate... I don't know how he got in but he's too quick for me to catch and must be happy because he's been around for months!
