Foto Friday: Memorial
Hmm, I suppose this should have gone next week, but I didn't think of it until it was too late. Oh well.
This is a memorial to George Vancouver, who visited Maui in the years 1792-1794. Why this rather handmade memorial was put up in (I believe) 1960, I don't know. The roundish thing in the center is a beehive-shaped plinth made of concrete and dark rocks, with a memorial inscription inscribed in the wet concrete with a finger, or possibly a stick. I keep meaning to write it down, but it's hard to read in some places. To either side of it are totem poles. They make a nice silhouette agains the sunset.
Here you can find a picture of one of the poles in broad daylight (scroll down a bit). I can never haul myself out of bed early enough to get morning shots.
