(There are a lot of pictures on this post)

This morning we decided to go to breakfast at the historic Pioneer Inn in downtown Lahaina.  This inn was built by George Freeland who came to Maui as a Mountie, who did not catch the man he was supposed to.  He decided to build a hotel in Maui on the waterfront rather than go back to England and face the consequences there.

The restaurant is a corner open air room that allows one to look at and hear the ocean waves while enjoying your food.  The wait people are very attentive and the food is good.

We both decided to try something different that what we have been eating the last few days.   So Stan had Eggs Benedict and I had an omelet with pineapple and Portuguese sausage- called Mowee Wowee Omelet.

There was a craft fair being set up under the banyan tree as we finished breakfast.  There was a Hawaiian lady who was stringing flowers to make lei’s.  I asked her if I could take her picture.  She told me it was easy to make lei’s and that ones made with the plumaria flower last for a couple of days.

There was a parade in Lahaina this morning in honor of  Hawaiian King Kamehameha who united all of the islands so there was a unity rather than division.  This parade is an annual event and the streets were lined with people who had come to watch.  I took many pictures of the parade.

At the very end of the parade was this guy.  His hat says, “I’m the last guy.”

We walked around a little after that and decided to go back to the condo to get in pool to cool off.
