The Next Mountain.

In this doco by Anne and Wayne Tindall, completed after many tribulations in 2004,   I talk about challenges.

There is always another one.

This time, on Big Island, Hawai’i.

I am extremely privileged to be sharing a house, and work, with a bunch of talented people.

More about this in a later blog.

Manua Kea, 4205m. Summit as elusive as ever. Maybe next time..

Even with volcanoes towering above, ghosts in clouds, I feel far from the mountains I love. It is hurricane season here, and bucketing down does not even start to cover it.

Hot, sweaty, burning in the sun.

Cold, windy and pouring down, cowering in bed.

A land of extremes.

There is a ‘oui, mais’ ( yes, but)

I am starting to feel the vibe of this ancient land, thanks to quick dashes to unpopulated corners of the island.

Moving away from: ” OooO, I dont like this, this is not me at all”, to ” MMMmm! …”

Fears subside, born again as excitement.

Teresa on left, on public trail. Green, on right. Private property, THEN the ocean! 😦 The Ozzie in me has a hard time dealing with that…

Past posh properties and those others who have total ocean frontage for miles, glimpses of ancient island.

If I look closer, further up, further down, entire tracks of land wild and black and       lava blistered.

Random violent pink flowering trees.  Golden grass tufts. A bush fire last week that uncovered centuries old village foundations …

Hawai’i is growing on me.

Not surprising, with all that rain and heat.
