Travel day

Only a couple dozen frames shot today as we made the “hop” from Oahu to Maui. We went to the Aloha Parade in Honolulu in the morning, but I didn’t take a camera. (More on that below.)

As you can imagine, Hawaii does not lack for photograph-able plants-and-flowers. This is “Erythrina crista-galli,” a plant native to South America going by several “common names”:
» Cry Baby
» Cockspur
» Fireman’s Cap Tree
» Brazillian Coral Tree
From Wikipedia: “It is widely planted as a street or garden tree…”
From Weeds of Australia: “Cockspur coral tree (Erythrina crista-galli) is widely cultivated as an ornamental in the warmer parts of Australia. It is commonly grown in parks and gardens for its spectacular red flowers, which attract birds”
This tree was across from our hotel in the Waikiki area of Oahu.

The USS Arizona Memorial still has a “no bags” policy, so yesterday I took only my point-and-shoot … along with an extra battery. This morning I discovered that I lost the extra battery yesterday (it must have fallen out of my pocket) and I didn’t want to lug my big camera to the Aloha Parade, so not many frames today.

We boarded an Island Air flight from Honolulu to Kahului, Maui. You’ve seen the airline route maps in the back of their in-flight magazines, right? Check out Island Air’s route map,
Not very complicated!

Dinner in Maui: Carry-out (“take-away”) from Star Noodle.
