FAREWELL TO ANNEX (1):  Trek to Waimoku Falls – Water/Earth Ceremony

Elizabeth and I went on a four-mile pilgrimage June 29, 2014 to the majestic 400-foot Waimoku Falls (Maui, Hawaii). That’s where we did a Water and Earth farewell ceremony. It was a very hot and humid day. My shirt and jeans were soaked in sweat as if I had taken a swim in the ocean.

For a better understanding of what this Annex farewell ceremony meant, check out this story at the Annex web site:


This video is a record of our Waimoku Falls pilgrimage.

Background Music – “Forest & Water” from the “4 Elements” suite – composed and recorded by ALTZAR in Apr 2011 – music inspired by another trek to Waimoku Falls on St Patrick’s Day 2011

Koki Beach – Pele’s Final Resting Place


After Waimoku Falls, we continued driving in our open air “El Jeepo” (Jeep) to the Koki Beach near Hana. That’s where Goddess Pele’s final resting place is, according to the Hawaiian legends. It is that little island you see in the distance.

And so are these shots…
