Notable Thanksgiving Outing
(Continued from last week)
To the Caves and Beyond
Saturday was an exceptionally rare
and beautiful day and was devoted to
the Haena Caves and the Kalalau
The extension of the automobile
road to and beyond the dry cave is a
great improvement, and cars now drive
Into the cave and circulate about as
in a park. On this occasion, however,
they did not go beyond the Haena
church because of mud consequent on
much rain. The plan Is to carry this
road clear through to the Wet Caves
The trip along the beach was es
pecially fine, with the wonderful
mountain scenery at the back, and
the majesty of the great combers
rolling in over the reef.
The Legend of the Demi-Gods
At Pohakuloa the leader halted the
party and told them the Interesting
story of the Demigods who swam all
the way from the South Seas in one
night, on the way to the Hawaiian
Olympus, and arriving too late, were
caught by dawn and were turned into
The Charm of the Wet Caves
The big Wet Cave of Kanaloa was
a revelation of beauty with its lake
of clear, transluctnt water that gave a
lovely bluish tone to everything, and
threw dancing reflections on the over
hanging roof. It was all the charm
and wonder of the Grotto of Capri
moved to Hawaii.
At the smaller cave of Ka-Wai-o-Ka-Pali
with its strange mantle of pearly
cream, now again returned after
long years of absence, the dramatic
story of the mermaid and her tragic
romance, was related by the leader,
much to the interest of all.
Better Things Beyond
This is as far as most visitors go,
but with the instinct of real explor
ers they went on to the extreme end
of the flat where it meets the tow
ering cliffs of the Napali region. Here
under an over-arching puhala tree, on
the shore of the charming little harbor
of Keei, with its peaceful waters and
dainty colorings, the whole party par
took of the frugal, but dainty lunch,
which everyone carried.
The Home of Lohiau and
This secluded spot was the home
of Lohiau, the patron demi-god of
music and the hula dance. It was
here that Pele made his acquaintance
and fell in love with him; it was here
that her cousin Hiiaka came as special
envoy of Pele, to convey him to Ha
waii but alas, too late, he was al
ready dead. It was here she caught
his hovering spirit and injected It
into the lifeless body, restoring him
to life; and it was here that she her
self fell in love with him with all
the disastrous consequences. A large
platform Heiau overlooking the bay
and sunggling close in under the pali,
witnesses to the reverence in which
his name was held, if not to the realty
of his existence.
The Wonders of the Kalalau Trail
About h.ilf an hour's euv ol.mb up
the narrow ' zig-zag Kalalau trail
brought the party to the high vant
age point of Kalaeo-Ka-ilio, whence
the glories of the Napalt Coast are
revealed. Like buttresses of a vast
fortress, with foundations beneath
the sea and architraves within the
clouds, these towering bastions of the
Island wall range up one beyond the
other until they grow dim in the far
distance. Covered with vendure, with
constantly varying lights and shades,
and facing the vast expance of ocean
it is probably the finest single view
on the Islands.
Having seen this, tho fitting climax
of their outings, they felt that they
could go home satisfied and contented.

The Gurrey Exhibition
Lihue has been highly favored dur
ing the last week in having a chance
to see and enjoy the Gurrey exhibit of
In a very real and unique sense Mr.
Gurrey is the special Kauai artist.
Not only is he a local resident and
Karcaaina. but, more than any artist
who has comp to our shores, does he
know every nook and corner of them,
iind with a most discriminating eye
for beauty he has sought them out and
transferred them to his canvas. His
subjects run all the way from Polihale
to Haena, and at every point he has
found new interests and new attract
ions unknown before.
He has especially found a new and
fertile field in the limestone cliffs and
emerald seas of the Mahaulepu region,
from which he has brought back
some very charming studies.
Considering the skill and success
with which he handles the happy
combination of shore and ocean one
does not need to wonder that he
chooses that combination for. most of
his pictures. However, he is almost
equally at home in other lines, and
some of his prettiest and daintiest
studios are of iron wood trees, and
a little bit of meadowland or a dreamy
still-water pond. '
He exhibited in all some fifty pic
tures, mostly very neatly fronted by
his own hand. A goodly number of
them found purchasers. Any of them
would make lovely Christmas presents.
THE REVIVAL OF

cessful working order and ready to

good reading it is.
