We moved to Oregon. I managed to unwittingly delete the long-winded version of this post, just as I tried to add a picture. No good deed... I will miss the good friends and unique features of Maui. I left just as my started-from-seed Kona coffee bush finally put out a nice crop of red fruits, but I didn't get to harvest a bean. The windbreak I had just begun to put together is not to be, nor will the lightweight planters and garden "art" be finished (gulch-fill now). I will resist adding a picture here - it was just another rainbow, anyway, and Mauians get them almost every day.
I've opened a new blog at makindirt(dot)blogspot(dot)com for those who might want to see how we adjust to 4 seasons at a long-left-alone ranch along a pretty little river. The rainy season just started.
