We arrived in Hana thursday and marveled at the beauty of this place once again. Our dear friend Chris picked us up at the airport, leid us in bright tropical purples and immediately took us to Costco! (which seems like a total buzzkill except that I was fascinated to see boogie boards, hawaiian shirts, surf boards, macadamia nuts and board shorts in lieu of winter jackets.) I’ve always had a thing for grocery stores in other countries and Hawaii really should be considered another country.
Chris and Jacques live in beautiful Hana, one of the most exquisite jewels on planet Earth. It is also remote and takes at least 2 hours to get there by car on a windy magical road. People who live there have to shop for their food and other supplies in town (hence the trip to Costco) If you haven’t been on the the road to Hana, imagine Big Sur, (that wild, unmanicured beauty, dramatic cliffs overlooking the ocean) gone technicolor. Lush, green bamboo forests, red ginger and rocks and waterfalls on every curve. Rainbows sit in the clouds over turquoise water.
It’s ridiculous really. A totally ridiculous kind of beauty. And one that I feel so blessed to enjoy this week.
I always say that I love Chris and Jacques so much that they could live anywhere in the world and I would think it was the best place that ever existed… but I totally approve of their move to paradise.
So honored to see the post about me and my work on Danny Gregory’s site. I must say I love the drawing… Thank you Danny!
