Over the last couple of years, Ted Kenemitsu our drone pilot and a Crackerjack photographer, has posted on our Facebook page, random views from all over Molokai.
They’ve been posted, more or less, as they were shot, which makes for a kapakahi (mixed up) presentation. So, we are presenting a few of them geographically so visitors can have a better understanding locations.
The first photo encompasses most of Kaunakakai, looking east. The intersection near the photo’s center is Mile Zero Highway-wise it is the center of the island, with Highway 450 heading east twenty seven miles to Halawa Valley and Highway 460 heading west from here to mile 17 at Maunaloa.
Going to the right is the road to the Kaunakakai Wharf, aptly named Wharf Road. Turn left at this intersection onto Ala Malama Street, the main business street in town. Within this three-block range will be found 3 banks two groceries, the US Post Office, various shops, offices, the bakery and both of the island’s only gas stations.
