During this poepoe anahulu of Nana, we saw Huna rising over Hilo in the afternoon and also framed by loulu growing in Waipao, He’eia, O’ahu. We also saw photos of amazing māmane on Hawai’i. Then from Moku o Keawe, we saw pictures of Mohalu rising over Keaukaha, popolokumai in Puʻuhuluhulu and the always majestic Mauna Kea. Ama’ama (small mullet) were also running along the shoreline of Maunalua Bay, probably enjoying the limu that have been sprouting with the recent rains. Hua and Akua rose in clear Honolulu skies, but with Hoku rising, there were gusty winds, heavy passing rains, and pretty rough seas in Hilo. On Māhealani, we heard mana’o about Kawaihae’s first winds (a few months later than usual), as well as the very unusual rainy year, active koholā, and abundance throughout the landscape. On Kulu, the windy weather also resulted in mālolo on the kuapā walls at Heʻeia fishpond. Lāʻaukūkahi images included magnified aholehole eggs and also a salmon color lehua in the Ka’ū desert. On Lāʻaukūlua we saw ‘uala blooming in Maku’u. This day was also Piko o Wākea, and the sun rose directly Hikina; we saw a beautiful image from Alāla, Kailua, and heard about some chilly trades and lingering east swell. We didn’t get any photos on Lā’aupau but that’s okay! We like to think that it’s because people were out and about getting to know our ‘āina and spending time with each other!
