FAREWELL TO ANNEX (1): Trek to Waimoku Falls – Water/Earth Ceremony
Elizabeth and I went on a four-mile pilgrimage June 29, 2014 to the majestic 400-foot Waimoku Falls (Maui, Hawaii). That’s where we did a Water and Earth farewell ceremony. It was a very hot and humid day. My shirt and jeans were soaked in sweat as if I had taken a swim in the ocean.
For a better understanding of what this Annex farewell ceremony meant, check out this story at the Annex web site:
This video is a record of our Waimoku Falls pilgrimage.
Background Music – “Forest & Water” from the “4 Elements” suite – composed and recorded by ALTZAR in Apr 2011 – music inspired by another trek to Waimoku Falls on St Patrick’s Day 2011

Koki Beach – Pele’s Final Resting Place
After Waimoku Falls, we continued driving in our open air “El Jeepo” (Jeep) to the Koki Beach near Hana. That’s where Goddess Pele’s final resting place is, according to the Hawaiian legends. It is that little island you see in the distance.

Here are now some still shots from this wonderful day’s excursion from our Rainbow Shower home in Maui.
The middle photo above was taken in Apr 2012 when the swollen creek under Waimoku Falls forced us to take our shoes off an forge across the rushing waters (see Easter Hawaiian Style; Trek to Waimoku Falls, 4-15-12). And so are these shots…
Here’s also a video from that Easter 2012 trek to Waimoku Falls:
