I’ve got a few more snapshots from a week in Hawaii, working with Peter Frank Edwards Photographs.
At a food truck in Hanalei, this was the $9 mixed plate on Saturday – chicken lau lau, kalua pork, lots of purple poi, lomi-lomi salmon (best with gobs of poi), mac salad, and a dessert square made with coconut milk, taro and sticky rice. Actually much of the plate was sticky. And delicious… the taro leaves wrapped around the chicken have a smoky, artichoke taste. For another buck, the root beer was a good wash with it all.
From Princeville, the view of Hanalei Bay, for the moment… the sky and light changes fast here.
His name is “Moo” and lives with his owner near Moloa’a Beach, on the north shore of Kaua’i.
Here’s a doorless helicopter view of some of the ancient mountains of the once-volcanic Na Pali coast.
Not long before sunset at Hideaways Beach… the reward for the steep and slippery hike down the narrow path from Princeville. (Watch out for the broken railing in places, the thin ropes.) That’s PFE on the left. Tom, a local surfer and musician, brought us to this special patch of beach that’s shouldered by a rock ledge. As the sun fell, we all stood in the coarse-grained sand and sunglow and talked a while – of small houses, big surf and a Steinway piano (that’s another story).
