Take a Picture…Eerie Beauty

It’s been quite a week, hasn’t it?  On Saturday, at about 7:30 PM, a tsunami warning was issued for Hawaii due to a quake in Canada.  My family and I live at a high elevation so there was no need to evacuate but many along the coast did move to higher ground.  Fortunately the waves and surges that did reach Hawaii at about 10:30 PM did not cause any serious damage and no one got hurt.

The East Coast was not as fortunate and are now dealing with the aftermath of hurricane Sandy.  I am so relieved that one of my very close friends and her family in Connecticut are safe and have power but my heart is heavy for those who are without a home, power or have a lost a loved one due to the storm.  My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

Take a picture…

When my family first moved to Maui Meadows in the early 70s our lot was filled with kiawe trees.  We spent many weekends clearing off the property and pulling long and thick kiawe thorns out of our shoes.  I hated clearing the yard and dealing with scary thorns so I’ve never appreciated the kiawe tree.  Many years have since passed and there are no longer any kiawe on our property.  There are still quite a few kiawe in the undeveloped areas around us and then there is this tree, which hangs out over the ocean off of the walking path just beyond Wailea beach.  I’m always struck by its eerie beauty during daylight but especially as the sun begins to drop.
