Great Stay on the Friendly Isle
We just returned from your beautiful island, and I feel obligated to thank you and your fellow islanders for your hospitality. This was our second visit, and certainly won't be our last. We love visiting Hawai'i, but especially Molokai because it's so real.
We stayed on the west end in a privately owned condo at Kaluakoi Villas.
We hiked up on Kalaka Rock to watch whales in the morning, and spent many hours on Popohaku Beach. We made a point to visit Kalaupapa, and met Mrs. Marks, who is a perfectly lovely woman.
We were saddened to hear about the closing of the ranch; especially as it will leave so many individuals unemployed. I do hope that everyone fares well, and I certainly support the islanders' decision to buy the land so they can determine what is done with it, if anything.
I have a very high stress job, and Molokai filled me with renewed spiritual and physical energy to get through the rest of the year. I am grateful for your genuine hospitality. I now know the true meaning of aloha.
Until we return, I wish to say aloha and mahalo nui loa to you and your fellow islanders.
