This explains why there are so many dangerous places to swim in Hawaii -- the steep drop-off of mountains into sea.-From Ted Fleming"The Hawaiian Islands are a chain of massive volcanoes that stretch over 1,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean. Though some of these volcanoes reach nearly 14,000 feet above sea level, more of their height lies under the ocean's surface. …

I've shot a whole bunch of these simple little frame structures on Kauai, usually with tin roofs and overhangs, usually resting on foundations of pre-cast concrete pads. I'll get around to posting a bunch more later. They make sense in terms of simplicity, economy, ease of construction and local climate.

Nature rebounding? Agriculture doing well? Huh? I wish all this were true, but I find this analysis troubling. What's wrong here? What parts of this are right and what parts are not? I'm posting this for comment.I don't like Stewart's (and probably Jesse's) take on GMOs. Gardeners, people who work with the soil and respect natural processes know intuitively there's something wrong with the …

My experiences/photos are way ahead of my ability to post them. I'll throw out what I can when I get time.This was at the very end of the road on the southern part of Kauai, at the end of the Na Pali coast.

This is a recreated traditional Hawaiian village, on the banks of the Wailua River. There are maybe a dozen buildings and walking around (not many turistas) you can get a feeling for what life was like pre-gringo.

This is a steep, rugged section of land at the end of the road on the north shore of Kauai. I hiked in 2 miles to Hanakapiai Beach and it was tough! This is a mother of a trail, steep and slippery in parts. When I got to the beach, the surf was (sorry to use the word) awesome. 15'+ shore …

"Waioli Mission Hall stands as a major monument of Hawaiian architectural history, the primary inspiration for the Hawaiian double-pitched hipped roof so widely popularized by C. W. Dickey in the 1920s. Built by the Reverend William P. Alexander, Dickey's grandfather, the plaster walls of the frame structure repose beneath a sprawling roof and encircling lanai. The roof, originally thatched, was shingled …

I can't figure out why a Pacific West Coast native/surfer such as moi have gone only twice to Hawaii, and did no surfing and just a little swimming on both trips. Well, I'm off tomorrow early from Oakland on a $211 Alaska Airlines one-way flight to Kauai and I am excited! I intend to get back into the water in whatever …

I'm starting to do posts like this on TheShelterBlog."These are barns I photographed in the Willamette Valley in Oregon in September, 2014. The gambrel is a distinctive and common barn roof shape in this part of the world, as is the curved roof barn?"http://www.theshelterblog.com/six-gambrel-roof-barns-oregon/#wrapper

Looking down on the ocean/beach last (dark) night. Moon was a crescent (blurred here), 3 days past new moon. Light on right is house on shore, the 3-4 lights on horizon are crab fishing boats. It's looking like a good crab season. One local fisherman got 1200 pounds the 1st day out.I sometimes imagine what the ocean floor would look like …
