I was looking around on this website and found your site so decided to say hello. FYI...Noel and Piilani called today to clarify what's happening w/the HH name. Evidentally...N is throwing a fit!
Mahalo....I just took that picture in Anahola on my Kaua`i trip this weekend. I "love" picking shells. I wish it could be my lifelong job. lol! Yup counting sand. I'm upset about the military being upstream from the water system. Probably why the waters are murkey...if the Hewahewa `ohana does get control of the valley, I hope they test the waters for depleted uranium before going into the water. The valley is a treasure and I understand you wanting to get away from the touristyness of things. Maybe you might want to consider making it a ground zero for some educational venture. Maybe a Hawaiian charter school or something. but that is up to you all. I've visited the audobon and been able to tour a couple of times with David Orr as far as plants go, there are some treasures there. I hope they can be maintained. I'm glad the ohana got to see the valley. What does OHA have up there sleeves. Spooky....
