Interesting. Next to Oahu, Maui is said (slightly de haut en bas, by the locals) to be the next most “Californianized” (or even “Californicated”) of the Hawaiian islands. But – as the guide books say – it gets away with it because it is … beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. And bountiful.
Even the “Cheesburger in Paradise” (in Lahaina, below) … which in my case was a brunch-time Eggs Benedict … was rendered heavenly by the view and the laid-back atmosphere.
