We live on the west end of Molokai and only seem to make it to the east end when we have company and want to show them the island! It's about an hour's drive over there and feels like a long way!
One night last week Zara suggested we go for an adventure to the east end.... so the next morning we did just that. We packed up our beach stuff, some snacks, and headed off with no particular agenda.
There are lots of areas over there that we've driven past and never taken the time to stop and explore. This was our day for exploring...
The Kamalo harbour and old jetty...
Everything is so lush and green on the east end.
One of our lovely friends lives over there and have a sweet little farm - just an acre -with lots of plants and animals in that space... 34 chickens ranging from little ones to egg layers, a gosling, 2 dogs, an aquaculture pond with tilapia in it, a screened in garden for the plants most vulnerable to bugs and a healthy little garden. We LOVE visiting her farm!
We all fell in love with Juno the gosling. He/she was so precious!
Feeding the fish.
After a nice visit there, we went to the only store/cafe on the east side - Mana'e Goods and Grindz.
This is a favorite stop... their smoothies are ono! (delicious)
We took our lunch to the beach at Mile Marker 16 - a place we have been wanting to check out.
After a few more exploratory stops, we spent some time at this little slice of heaven... MM (mile marker) 20. The water was crystal clear and the perfect depth for the kids to play.

It is so picturesque "over there"! So beautiful and lush... so different from the west end. It's always nice to have a change of scenery on this small little island! We had a wonderful day.
(I apologize for the little black dot on all my photos! I haven't been able to remove that speck of dust that seems to have lodged itself on the inside of my camera behind the lens... any ideas? I was thinking about trying compressed air?)
