Honomu is a sweet little town near Akaka Falls. The buildings are over a hundred years old and the shop owners have gussied them up with some eyecatching colors. The Woodshop Gallery and Cafeserves a delicious ahi sandwich, and the rest of the food looked good too.
The shops in this drawing sell some beautiful sarongs and such. This kind of drawing is the most fun for me...start in with the pen and see where it goes. Usually wonky..and I like that. You might see more of this town later, because the rest of the strip is equally interesting.
Right up the road you from this town you find Akaka Falls State Park. The park has several falls including this small one:
and two very large ones including the 422 foot tall Akaka Falls:
The path is paved (though there are lots of steps) and the park is definitely worth a visit!
