Landing on the island of Molokai seems to instantly hit the relax button. Molokai is small, quiet, and pretty much goes on slow. Surrounded by the bluest of blue Pacific Ocean, populated by mountains and cliffs stretching up to the sky, and dense greenery interspersed with arid areas of land on the west side of the island. The main town of Kaunakakai is tiny, a few blocks only, and not many people seen at any one time there. The Sunday Traveler was surprised at seeing what was probably the entire population of the island at a street fair to celebrate the Molokai Canoe Festival one evening, there was a big crowd. A lot of fun went on at this event with food booths, music, and hula.
The Sunday Traveler spent time most days wandering around the island as the mood struck, never a plan in mind, other than that mule ride into Kalaupapa I posted about last Sunday. It’s wonderful to wake up each morning and think about the day’s possibilities over coffee looking out at the ocean.
I’ll go for photos for the rest of this post, and hope you enjoy them with your beverage of choice depending on the time of day it is where you live.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, and safe travels where ever the road takes you this holiday season, and always.
What a beautiful place. So peaceful.
It has got to be one of the more beautiful places I’ve seen. And, definitely the most peaceful. Truly heaven to me. Hope your travels are going well.
