Observed in Ka Lae

Ka Lae 8

A gathering of ocean currents just offshore makes Ka Lae (South Point) one of the most popular fishing spots on Hawaii’s Big Island.

Here, at the southernmost point in the United States, more than one fisherman has fallen from the cliffs and been swept away by the powerful Halaea Current.

Overheard in LAX

Terminal 7, Gate 78 at Los Angeles International Airport, waiting to board an early morning flight to Kona, Hawaii, two twenty-somethings in conversation:

When I was a kid, breakfast at McDonald’s and a day at the park – now that was a great day,” said the traveler as he unwrapped an Egg McMuffin.

“It still doesn’t get any better than that,” his friend agreed as he took a bite of his breakfast sandwich.

ADIP: The Ka`u Coast

A Day In Pictures
The Ka`u Coast on Hawaii’s Big Island

A four day business trip to Hawaii is not the easiest way to travel — especially when you consider it involves two six hour time changes and twenty plus hours in airports and planes. Still, I made every effort to see a bit of the Ka`u Coast on Hawaii’s Big Island.

This is Hawaii as it used to be, before gated communities and over-engineered family resorts.

Melanesians first landed in Hawaii on the Big Island near Ka Lae (South Point). This coast is the southernmost piece of land in the United States.
