I travel to Maui once a month for work. My husband Daniel can't make it for every single trip, so I have grown accustomed to adventuring with friends, making new ones or going solo. One of the great things about traveling is exploring new places and finding hidden gems. Sometimes, if I have the day free I will get up, eat something and just drive. This way I go with the flow and just discover new adventures, new places and new experiences... by just driving and letting the sun guide me.
On a recent visit I discovered a gem in Makena. This is Keawala'i Church, first founded in 1832. There is a lot of history in regards to the church structure, ownership and restoration. Being on property reminded me of Moloka'i. So beautiful and peaceful. I took a moment to stroll through and captured these images to share. In a place that is busy with tourists, shopping malls and taco trucks it's nice to see a piece of history on beachfront property nestled near one of Maui's greatest beaches.
