Kaupoa Beach





What used to be the beach portion of (for a short time) a posh eco camp site that Molokai Ranch (who happens to own quite a bit of the best land that there is on Molokai) had built circa 1990s I'm not exactly sure how long the eco camp was open-maybe a decade. I'm not sure, as I can't seem to find the exact dates. Anyway, it is now an abandoned site which seems to be the pattern that Molokai Ranch has had. The company has always been owned by entities that are not from Molokai and often overseas. They build and develop beautiful things only to abandon them abruptly-perhaps for political reasons or a business decision that they wanted somewhere to lose money. Who knows. One can only speculate, but it sure defies logic! The lodge they had built in 2000 was gorgeous. A huge endeavor. I don't think it was around for even a decade before they shut it down. I've heard talk for the past couple of years that they want to open up the lodge again and that certainly would be nice, but I can also understand everyone's skepticism when they hear this rhetoric.

Morning Light









I would say that it was a quiet walk in the forest this morning, but that would not be the truth! So many birds were out and about warbling their best tunes trying to out do one another.
Other than the birds, though, I had the entire park to myself when out for my walk! So much to be grateful for.

Tiny Watery Worlds








That's what I imagine to exist in each and every drop of water here-teeny, tiny microcosm worlds.

Loving the little shadows each drop casts too.

Celebrating the mundane once again!

The Wave





Waves have shadows too, you know.

I know. I never ever gave it much thought until I took this image because I noticed that the wave actually had a shadow. Did you ever think about this or is this new to you? An informal survey on my part.

Absinthe Makes The Heart Grow Fonder















Last weekend, a small group of us got together for what was an Absinthe tasting. Our hosts put in a lot of thought, effort and planning in this event which was quite remarkable. We did a blind tasting of 6 Absinthes over the span of 5 hours accompanied by hors d'oeuvres and a huge dinner. Less than mid-way through the event, we lost power (it was a proverbial dark and stormy night). Which I think, explains the third image (after all, we must carry on!). The first two images are the beautiful shadows cast by the Absinthe glasses.
