Donald Sunshine Watercolors of Molokai Exhibit & Storytelling

On Thursday, January 30 at 5pm, architect / artist / author, Donald Sunshine will show & story-tell at Molokai Art Center in Kualapu'u with a reception to follow.  
     In a casual, well-practiced, minimalistic style, Donald paints seemingly effortless watercolors of Molokai's most memorable locations.  
     Multi-talented, Donald shows his work at Molokai's premier art gallery, The Warehouse, located down the painted lane between Friendly Market & Imports Gifts on Kaunakakai's main street, Ala Malama.  If you happen to miss his exhibit at the Art Center, drop into The Warehouse Gallery to see his & Molokai's other top artists' work.  See some of Donald's work

Raining on Molokai - at last!

After months of drought, our lovely island is turning green again.  Mostly, it rains at night, so we are greeted by splashy puddles in the morning.  By mid-day, the sun is usually out and the weather is wonderful.
    Take the opportunity to sleep in, or have a leisurely breakfast at some of Molokai's cosy eateries.  A delightful coffee shop called The Tiki Shack has opened next to the Mini-Mart.  It's in the same block as Maka's Kitchen, which is now established as a great place to get take-out foods.  The mushroom burger deluxe at Maka's is a super treat that can be enjoyed outside under ample umbrellas.
   Another outstanding place for burgers and vegetarian sandwiches is located where Oviedo's Restaurant used to be - opposite the War Memorial on Ala Malama in Kaunakakai.  Don't miss their other offerings which include healthy/decadent yoghurt snacks and superb teas served in Mason Jars.
   There are plenty of other interesting places to eat on Molokai.  For certain, you won't go hungry on this island!
