Scenery change on our grounds.

Tropical Storm Iselle landed in the early morning of July 20. Five trees and a light post fell on the makai side of our grounds. The winds were so strong that they knocked down many trees at the Country Club and the county property on the beach, as well as the Maui Electric post in Baldwin Park. Thanks to our president Alan Nago and the demolition workers next door, we were able to clear all downed trees and branches before the Obon.

You may have realized that the house on the beach is now gone and fewer trees are there. It is a very bare land now between the ocean and us. We hope the Pacific Ocean will give us many more years to enjoy our sanctuary.
