Hurricane Season




June starts the official hurricane season, but we’re not expecting too many storms





Na Hoku Lani



It was a clear sunny day.  Now as evening approaches, the sky is clear and the stars are bright.  You can see the Milky Way very clearly.




Aloha Lapule





Kohala Mountains




Kohaha Na Manua i Moku o Keawe.  The mountains of Kohala on the Big Island of Hawai’i.  Located on the north eastern side of the Island of Hawai’i, it is also the oldest part of the youngest island in the chain of Hawaiian islands.   The island of Hawai’i is still growing in the Volcano and Puna districts.  Acres of new land is created daily by the lava flows form Kilauea.




Kohala cinder cones are brushed by the low clouds creating ghostly effects.


Some of the best farmlands are found here.  Large ranches with cattle grazing on lush grasslands.  Parker Ranch is the largest and oldest ranch that spans several islands.  The annual rodeos are fun events.




It’s quiet and peaceful here in Paniolo (Cowboy) country

Top Of Waikiki



Top of Waikiki is a restaurant located on the island of O’ahu in Honolulu.  It’s a huge revolving restaurant with five star cuisine.



It looks like a strange spaceship on top of a tall building.  The views of Waikiki are spectacular, as is the food.

Waikiki – Like no other place in the world.

Ianuali ‘elua.  He nani kakahiaka.  Another beautiful morning on Moku o Keawe.  It’s our winter so the trade breezes coming over the islands are chilled by the Pacific waters.  It’s in the low 70’s in the morning, and by afternoon the temperatures are the upper 70’s.  It’s partly cloudy, but with generous portions of sunshine.


A view of Akaka Falls in beautiful Honomu Hawai’i on the Big Island.  Wailele means waterfall, and at this State park there are several waterfalls to view.  When we get extensive rains, more waterfalls appear like magic.  People from all over the world visit this location.  Locals get discounted entrance fee.

They had to add an entrance fee to prevent people from breaking into cars.  It’s a shame, but it’s sign of the times.
