Drink it in

Captain Cook was 'ere

Fascinating morning with Herb Kane, a Hawaiian artist, historian and anthropologist whom a Chicago friend introduced us to.  He’s in his 80’s now, but gamely drove us down to Kaleakalua Bay (above), where Captain Cook was killed in 1779;  and then on to Pu’uhonua o Honaunau, a royal residence and ancient area of sanctuary.  Unbelievably gorgeous spot; with similar vivid (but still harmonious) contrasts that I was wondering over in this post the other day.  You really can just drink it all in, and feel it doing you good.
