Our Ka‘ū Huaka‘i!

What a full and rememberable day we had in the Ka‘ū district! Mahalo to all of the chaperones who came along to assist and help keep us safe.
We began our learning at the Ka‘u Coffee Mill where Mr.Cross and Mrs. Kam showed us all the parts of coffee growing and preparation. Mrs. Kam, an artist, also demonstrated drawing techniques of native plants and cartoon faces (ours!). The keiki took their own pictures using iPods form our computer lab. They will download these next week and make an iMovie of this experience.
Then on to Punalu‘u where we were met by Uncle John Kahiapo. He shared rich stories about that area, including taking us up to a church dedicated to Henry Opukahaia then down to the shore where we saw the bubbles of a natural spring in the shallows and a green sea turtle coming out for some sun.
We had lunch and a short dip into the cool ocean before heading back to school. Tired, but full of new ideas about the district of Ka‘ū!
