|An assortment of homemade pies at the 3rd Annual Maui Pie TweetUp, which was free, open to the public, and also celebrated the 5th anniversary of Kula Fields, a local business that arranges and delivers weekly boxes of fresh Maui produce. Offerings included individual chicken pot pies, strawberry and liliko'i pie, savory tomato and goat cheese pie, lemon meringue pie, quiches, cherry pie, onion pie, apple pie.

|Roadside art is very real on Maui. This local phenomenon, which I call the "Ho'okipa Pillbox" since it was part of an old WWII radio station, gets face lifts all the time.
