This is why we can still feel like Kaaawa is in the “country”.
Sunday morning, about 7:15 a.m.
I’m standing in the middle of Kamehameha Highway looking in the direction of Punaluu and beyond.
Of course, there’s a bit of irony in the fact that we drive nearly an hour from downtown Honolulu in order to enjoy this quiet neighborhood. We’re the traffic that flows through communities closer to town.
But on Sunday morning in Kaaawa, the quiet is welcome.
