The ALOHA WORKSHOP at SKEA is going fine!
The hotel KING KAM -- that I was staying at -- had to be evacuated at 11 pm on Thursday evening -- due to the tsunami from Japan earthquake.
I went to higher ground with Kathleen Alexander and her husband Tom to stay at a friend's house on the Makau.
It was a stressful evening...with sirens and phone calls.
Thankfully...we are all safe.
Kona coast received damage from 1-2 foot surge. It's amazing to see how much destruction that can cause!
The hotel lobby had 1 foot of water...and destroyed restaurant, pool, and first floor lobby.
The workshop continued yesterday . We were all happy to be together....but tired and worried.
At the end of the day-- it was fun... and good camaraderie and sisterhood!
I am so thankful for my students!
Wow.... I will never forget this workshop.
Please check my Facebook page for many photos of the destruction.
