The Sacred Path

Journeys through the mist

Too long… again

I’ve felt the urge to blog again, but it hasn’t  been strong enough to pull me away from the farm work at our home here on Hawaii island. So much to do here, and we are in the middle of Macadamia nut harvest season and with four acres of trees to take care of, and keeping up with the maintenance and repairs around here, I seem to have little time. All that and keeping up with my job at Automattic (

We did get out for a trip today to Waipio Valley today. The weather was misty and overcast, but that only seems to add to the beauty of this place. The road down into the valley is very steep and only four wheel drive vehicles are allow to make the trip. Glad I have one. Here are a few shots from our trip, and a couple thrown in as a bonus from our home in Holualoa on the west side of the island, south of Kailua-Kona. Life is really, really good. 🙂


  1. Looks lovely! 🙂

  2. Lovely photos. I loved Hawai’i. How did you get into macademia growing?

    • We were looking for a property on the west side of the big island and fell in love with this place. It felt like “home”, so we purchased it. Along with it came Macadamia nuts… lots of them. Nearly 4 acres and 200+ trees. So we are now farmers. 🙂

  3. I have to say that your WP forum blavatar makes you look so Australian, a bushy…and macadamias are so Aussie too! Hawai’i felt like home to me too, all those years ago. Unfortunately, the mandatory requirements to move there made it too hard; so, I now have very fond memories of the place and my visits to the other islands as well. Hang loose certainly fits in with my lifestyle. Wish I was there with you…
    Oh, PS: Watching the lifestyle channel House Hunters International recently had a few episodes that showed the area around Kailua-Kona, a lovely area.
