Kaihalulu Beach

Red Sand Beach (Hana, Maui, Hawaii)

I felt like my eyes were deceiving me when I was looking at this scene. Not just because it was extraordinarily beautiful, but how does turquoise water exist on top of dark red sand? Isn’t water clear for the most part, and the color we see from it comes from sky reflection or from the beach color under the water? In this case, neither was anything close to turquoise so…??!?!

I’ve seen azure ocean water before, but in every case (except this one), the sand beneath it was white.

A year ago, I’d never heard of this band. Since then, I’ve seen them three times. The above photo is from the first time. Every time they are better than expected, even though my expectations have increased each time.

They are playing in Portland the next three nights at three different venues.

One thing that I love about traveling, beyond seeing new things and meeting new people, is that things that weren’t on my radar before become interests for the rest of my days. For instance, I would have skipped over this article in the NY Times a few days ago were it not for my trip to Alaska last summer.
