Photo above by my old friend and high-school classmate, Elle Cochran, when she was flying over on her way to Oahu recently… (Don’t worry; the future mayor of Maui gave me permission to use her photos in my blog!). The outlines of the pineapple fields are still visible. No more red dirt on the roads.
Below: Honolua Bay back then… with funky cars and pineapple fields up on field 53 “F-53″…my dad shot this from a helicopter old school (no drone) 1979. And following… Honolua Bay today.

My father, John Severson, designed the Save Honolua logo – Elle Cochran and her husband Wayno were implicated in the Save Honolua Coalition from the beginning which helped keep Honolua, Lipoa Point and surrounding areas a public park.
