Na Wahine O Ke Kai - Back for the 41st Year, the Molokai to Oahu Canoe race is deeply routed in Hawaiian traditions.

Check back after the race for photos you will be able to purchase and download from the event.

Hawaii Time Capsule Installation - My family and I had the amazing opportunity to watch several of my photos be included as a part of the State Capitol Time Capsule. The time capsule will be reopened in 50 years and I look forward to my son, Cole, being there to witness it.
