Lahaina Noon

I wish we were in Lahaina, Maui at noon but no, this is just a picture of the BF at Lahaina Noon (May 26, 2014 at 12:28pm) — when the sun passed exactly overhead Oahu and there is no shadow!

Chosen in a contest sponsored by the Bishop Museum in the 1990s, Lahaina Noon was the selected appellation because lā hainā (the old name for Lahaina, Hawaii) means “cruel sun” in the Hawaiian language. The ancient Hawaiian name for the event was kau ka lā i ka lolo which literally translates as “the sun rests on the brains.” This paragraph was cut&paste from Wikipedia.
