Trip to the Maui Tropical Plantation

Waikapu, Maui

February 9, 2023

Our excursion today was a  trip to the Maui Tropical Plantation and a drive through the heights above Wailuku.  I did not get any pictures from the heights.  These are substantial homes built on the hillside above Wailuku.  They overlook the valley between Haleakala and Kahului and the ocean off Paia and off Kehei.  Very nice.

Well, here we are waiting for lunch at the Tropical Plantation.  We are all looking at our table centerpiece decoration:

We strolled the gardens looking at the flora and fauna.  Here’s a black crowned night heron just like we see in Davis.  Wonder how they got here?:

The Plantation is several acres of farmed ground with displays and a tram ride option through the grounds.  Unfortunately, we did not get any pictures of the grounds outside the area immediate to the restaurant.  Displays inside the plantation store:
