MENEHUNE DITCH The row of hewn stones along the inner side of the road is a remnant of one wall of an ancient water-course which is said to have been made by the menehunes (hawaiian dwarfs or brownies). The stones were brought from Mokihana. There is an old saying: “Uwa ka menehune ma Kanaloahuluhulu (Kauai) puoho ka manu o Kawainui (Oahu) The shout of the menehunes at Kanaloahuluhulu (Kauai) startles the birds of Kawainui (Oahu).”

My husband and I went exploring near some huge sanddunes yesterday. We found this sick fossil in one of them. Not sure how old it could be. Don’t even know what kind of animal it is. Just put it back where we found it.
