Hana Part I
Hana Part II
In the year 2000, Hāna's population was around 1,800 people... and I don't think it's much more than that today. In the years 1900-1940, however; Hāna was a bustling town! Roughly 3,500 people lived in Hāna, there were two movie theaters, 15 different stores, three barber shops, a pool hall, and several restaurants.
in 1944, Paul Fagan, a retired entrepreneur from San Francisco started The Hāna Ranch with 14,000 acres of land and a herd of Hereford cattle from Molokai...
In 1946, Paul started the Ka'uiki Inn, now known as the Hotel Hāna-Maui...
And in 1960, Paul Fagan passed away. A lava rock cross is erected on a grassy hill overlooking Hāna-town in his memory...

I really wanted to take him to Blue Pool, when I was in Hana the week prior with my Canoe Club we had gone, and it was so much fun!
Continuing our journey, we stopped in Ke'anae...
Taro is one of the staple foods of the Hawaiian culture. The whole taro plant can be eaten. The root can be steamed and pounded into poi or made into chips. The stems (ha-ha) are commonly cooked with meat, and the leaves can be steamed and eaten, having the taste and texture that is similar to spinach.
After our scenic tour out of Hana we were famished and craving the Paia Fish Market... we timed it just right, and ended up getting there just as they opened for lunch, it was perfect!

|No one around - it was perfect:)|
We were going to see a movie after dinner, but we were so exhausted! We went home and quickly drifted off into sweet dreams:)
Only two more full days left of the bf's visit...
