Gemini Gypsy Tales :Molokai, Hawaii

             Year 2015       
Molokai, also known as the Friendly Isle, is one of 8 Hawaiian islands in the central Pacific. On the island's Kalaupapa Peninsula is a steep path leading to Kalaupapa National Historical Park, an isolated former leper colony below the towering cliffs.  Nearby, the park's Phallic Rock is said to have fertility powers. Molokai is a magical untouched paradise with only one street light and average 7500 inhabitants. I lived on Molokai for nine months and it was one of the most amazing experience of my life.
Welcome to Molokai! I definitely was off the grid on this Friendly Isle!

I frequently Island Hopped to Oahu, Kauai, and Maui when I wasn't working.
