Hawai'ian Delights

King Kamehameha's View

[View of Kona from Kamehameha's Palace]

Kona, Hawai'i

This was taken near the Palace of King Kamehameha, on the "Big Island" of Hawai'i. Kamehameha was the last of the line of Great Hawaiian kings, as best described in Michener's Hawaii, and with great historical and emotional poignancy in Helena Allen's (much smaller) paperback, The Betrayal of Princess Liluokalani: Last Hawaiian Queen.

In the background center, with proper resolution, patches of farm land can be seen, plantations where Kona coffee beans are grown, unique in their taste due to both lineage and the rich volcanic soil.
