CHAPTER 1 ~ GETTING THERE
A clear day on the mountain.
We rarely see the top of the Mauna Kea volcano on the drive to Waimea. It's often foggy or obscured by clouds
Some days we get lucky and the air is clear. On those days, I can even see the observatories on top, especially in early morning or later afternoon when the sun shines on the sides of the buildings.
I took this picture in the ohana just before we moved downstairs. The new mattresses finally came and Greg paid the guys who delivered them to take the two couches and the bed downstairs too. Now we have more space to spread out.

Waimea is bigger than Honoka'a (9000 versus 2000 people), and is right on the main highway around the island. It has several stoplights.
Unfortunately, the road infrastructure does not match the traffic in Waimea at 7:30 in the morning and at 3:00 pm when the three schools in town open up and get out, respectively. It's very congested, and can be dangerous for pedestrians, especially kids going to and leaving school.
A crosswalk guard helps people across the street during these busy periods, even adults.
