As promised, here are a few more photos of our overnight visit with friends out in Kaaawa. We lived there for 28 years before moving back last year to the house in Kahala where my sister and I grew up, so we’ve got lots of memories and many friends out there in the country.
We noticed that there are now several properties priced at or over $1 million now listed for sale in Kaaawa. That’s quite a bit higher than when we sold our house a year ago. I don’t know whether any of these have actually sold at that price level, but I guess the rising market is having an impact throughout the island.
Oh, did I mention the dogs? We had to buy some special dog biscuits for our walk this morning, although we actually didn’t see as many of our doggie friends as we normally do.
In any case, just click on the photo to see all of today’s Kaaawa scenes!
We’re doing our early morning walk in Kaaawa this morning after spending the night with friends just up the hill from our former home.
It’s always a pleasure to see Kaaawa friends, human and canine.
We’ll be driving back to town later this morning, and I’ll share a few photos then.
We had dinner with a friend in Kaaawa on Friday night, and got up early to walk the beach the next morning.
Yes, we miss Kaaawa, although we’re happy being much closer to everything after our move into Honolulu.
Just a couple of photos to share.
That’s Verne in the top photo. He spent a lot of time at sea before retiring in Kaaawa, and for quite a few years he’s been sweeping the parks and fishing areas for discarded cans and bottles. We ran into him Saturday morning at Swanzy Beach Park, a half-filled garbage bag in hand. He now mostly concentrates on cans, which are easier to collect and transport.
And in the photo below, one of the most active Kaaawa fishermen has nets laid out in his garage for mending. The muted colors caught my eye, and I grabbed a quick picture.
Just two little vignettes from a quiet morning in Kaaawa.
We revisited Kaaawa again this weekend, and are planning another visit at the end of this week. Spent Saturday night up the hill with a friend, then did our walk down to the beach and over to the other end of Kaaawa early this morning.
I’ve got a batch of photos to share. This one shows a view of the campers at Swanzy Beach Park early this morning, probably about 20 minutes after the sun came up. The start of another a beautiful day.
We stopped during our drive to Kaaawa on Saturday afternoon and bought a small box of dog biscuits to share with our many friends. Worth every penny!

We walked the beach in Kaaawa on Sunday morning and visited with many of the dogs we know across the neighborhood, courtesy of friends who invited us to dinner and to spend the night just a block or so from our former home.
This time, quite a few of our canine friends were outside and happy to see us again. This is Duck, on the left, and Monkey. We used to bring Duck a doggie treat every time we saw him, and although we arrived yesterday empty handed, he didn’t seem to mind too much. Monkey was rescued just after we moved from Kaaawa, but he was just as excited to have a chance to say hello and collect some pets from us.
I count 16 dogs that made it into the morning’s photos, and there were a few that we missed along the way.
