November 1st, Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
Here we are at one of my favorite haunts (not pun intended) back on the Big Island. Ho'okena Beach just south of Kailua-Kona, an old shipping port and former hang out of Mark Twain.
I thought this would be a great place for Michelle to say goodbye and toss in the small handful of ashes she was given of her friend Sara who recently passed on August 1st of this year. My mom encouraged her to pour the ashes into a little tissue paper pouch and with a lava rock to weight it down as to make it easier to toss out into the water where it's really windy. The tissue paper quickly dissolved and the ashes were dispersed out into the Pacific.
