World Turtle Day - Aloha from Maui Hawaii 
 
In honor of World Turtle Day, here's some turtles and turtle images for you to enjoy. 
 
On Maui they're fixing fences to keep the turtles and their sandy nests safe, so we can have more baby turtles this season. Read about it HERE in the Maui News.
 
You can see some posts about sea turtles in Hawaii here:

hawaii: Pink and yellow flowers - it's springtime in Hawaii - 04/11/19 03:00 AM
Springtime in Hawaii - tropical flowers are blooming.
There's no end to the beautiful flowers in Hawaii.  Here's some colorful hibiscus flowers growing at the Hawaiian Sea Spirits Organic Vodka Distillery, in Kula Maui.  On a recent tour we enjoyed the grounds and the sugar cane plants.  It's a beautiful spot to take a tour and enjoy the scenery too.
What kind of tropical flowers are easy to grow?  Many kinds are very easy!
Some you just start from cuttings, stuck in some soil.

hawaii: Halama St. in Kihei Maui - an oceanfront neighborhood - 04/07/19 02:45 AM
Halama St. in Kihei Maui - an oceanfront neighborhood
If you want an oceanfront home in Kihei Maui, the options are somewhat limited, because much of the coastal real estate is taken up by condominium resorts, and beach parks.  South Kihei Road is the main artery along the coastline, and there's a few streets that extend beyond this and offer some neighborhoods with single family homes.  Uluniu Rd. is one, and Halama St. is another.  Let's see what's happening on Halama St....
Halama Street - runs between Kalama Park to the south, and up to W. Kapu Rd. to the north.

hawaii: Picking papayas from the tree in Haiku Maui Hawaii - 02/27/19 03:53 PM
Papayas are a favorite tropical fruit around the world.
We are blessed with a bounty of papayas this season, despite the wet winter.  It seems the rich soil from the previous veggie garden has made a big difference.  So I put together a short 1 minute video to show what the trees look like and how to pick the fruits, since many people have no idea where papayas come from.
It takes about a year to year and a half from planting to picking.  To really be on top of things you'd be starting more seeds every year or two to replace the … (7 comments)

hawaii: Everybody loves a sea turtle on the beach - especially on Maui - 01/30/19 01:00 AM
Everybody loves a sea turtle on the beach - especially on Maui
In the past few years the sea turtle populations have really made a big comeback here on Maui.  These turtles were recently seen at Ho'okipa Beach Park on Maui's north shore, and snapped by Carlos Jabour while on vacation.
Visitors to the island love to stop and watch them and take pictures.  The turtles really don't do much, just lay on the beach, and come and go as they please.  They get a chance to rest on the sand and catch some rays, just like the tourists who flock here each … (22 comments)

hawaii: My new format Maui newsletter for Jan 15, 2019 - 01/15/19 09:25 PM
My new format Maui newsletter for Jan 15, 2019 
This new version went out today and it features a lot of the year-end statistics for Maui County.... residential and vacant land.  The plan for 2019 is to send out the e-news twice a month.  One time focuses on the stats, and the next time showcases lifestyle.  I think it's going to be more fun this way. 
I'm trying to use more video, and just off-the-cuff live ones with me talking about things here on Maui.  It took a while to get comfortable with it but now I just do a … (8 comments)

hawaii: A box of goodness from the garden in Haiku Maui - 01/10/19 12:15 AM
The new year is off to a good start. 
It's great to come home from a vacation on the cold and wintry mainland and go "shopping" for food in the garden.  With a freezer full of our own Maui grass-fed beef and a few things from the garden we've been eating quite well.

hawaii: Thankful for friends who turn me on to favorite herbs - 11/13/18 03:54 PM
We love to garden and grow food, which is very easy to do in Haiku Maui.  It's nice to have friends who share this passion, and bring us new plants to try.  Over the years we have incorporated a lot of great herbs into our gardens.
From right to left: chili peppers; oregano; turmeric; my chickens!
Mike brought us Hawaiian chili peppers which are probably some of the hottest peppers you can find.  They are very small and grow all year round on the bush, so there's always an abundance of these fiery little gems ready for picking.  How much do you really … (12 comments)

hawaii: My October profile picture update challenge - 10/31/18 01:34 PM
My October profile picture update challenge - this is an entry in the challenge by Paul Henderson
 
The old picture was taken at the Hawaii Life office in Wailea a couple of years ago. Winston came over with a professional camera and used a white screen background so many of us Hawaii Lifers could get a nice head shot.  The plan was to have some consistency on their website, and have a lot of the pictures look casual and fun, yet similar.  It was a good idea and I thought it was going to happen again each year, but apparently not.

Double rainbow videos from Haiku Maui Hawaii
North shore Maui double rainbow from Maui Hunter on Vimeo.
Just a short peek at a brilliant double rainbow as a little shower blows in on the trade winds here on Maui's north shore.  You know what they say... where there's rain, there's rainbows, and we get plenty of them here in Hawaii.
In fact, so many that here's another quick video taken from the front porch/lanai at my home in Haiku Maui.  Good thing my iPhone was handy because these don't last long.

hawaii: Two hurricanes have come and gone here on Maui, 2018 update - 09/14/18 05:01 PM
Two hurricanes have come and gone here on Maui and we have been very lucky to have no damages at our home.  In each case they downgraded to a Tropical Storm, which is less severe than a hurricane but still comes with some extreme weather.

The Piikea FOOD TRUCK COURT offers a great selection of meals for every taste.

Haiku Maui Hawaii off-grid building site with views!   FOR SALE
Haiku Maui - Burns Road is accessed from the lower end of Kaupakalua Road, and much of this area is ranch land and wide open country.  It's a little out-of-the-way spot that many Maui people don't even know about.  This new gated neighborhood only has a few building lots so you won't have many neighbors.

Throwback Thursday - vintage 1942 home in Paia Maui for sale 
22 Meha Place - Kuau, Paia Maui Hawaii
It's not often you get to see a classic home like this on Maui's north shore, with the good old fashioned stainless steel double sink that was very state of the art back then.  Remember those red formica countertops?  In the 60's we used to have the table and chairs that matched that red formica, with the chrome legs and trim band around the edge. That brings back some memories!
