Day 278 : hana

Sandy: The Road to Hana sounds like a movie title about an adventure. Well the road to Hana, that is highway 360 in East Maui, is quite the adventure with it’s 617 curves (sometimes hair pin), crossings over 59 narrow, one-lane bridges, flash rain, landslide debris, and speeding local drivers. It’s hard to keep your eyes on the road when the cliff drops straight down, the beautiful blue ocean is beaconing or the sight of trees growing straight up with it’s trunk and roots embedded visibly against a vertically straight hill in the rain forest makes you pause. Because the federal government is shut down, the Haleakala National Park was closed so we didn’t get to hike or see  the pools and waterfalls of Oheo. But John did get to bob around in the rough surf when we stopped at Waianapanapa State Park’s black sand beach.

i used my new portable set of oil pastels to render an impressionist image of Hana Bay.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
