90 paintings in 90 days, Day 19, Molokai Dirt Road

       Molokai Dirt Road

      Molokai's red dirt roads crisscross the island. They wander into the back country, wind downhill to the best beaches and go nearly vertical up the mountain to the rain forest. Bumping down a dirt road in an old pick-up, music blaring, dogs barking in back, those are the best times on Molokai. The movie theater closed and there are only a handful of restaurants on the island so most days entertainment is pretty much watching coconuts fall. But there are so many places of exceptional beauty and rare moments of quiet, well, if you turn the radio off and leave the dogs home, but who would do that?
