Kaho'olawe

Smallest of eight Hawaiian Islands next to Maui with sad history.

This is what I saw from my deck every morning for six years, living on Maui,
often with humpback whale families jumping in winter months.
Before the fancy resorts.
We had to drive on dirt roads, walk through thorny kiawe thickets
to get to the pristine white sand beaches that Maui is now famous for.
Before the big highways.

This is where my daughter learned to swim at eight months!
She is still the happiest with sand between her toes.
