#6. Peleaku Gardens Peace Sanctuary

For you to fully understand this next blog, I'll need to tell you something I've kinda been avoiding. I got mugged during my recent trip to Kona. It happened early in my stay, just a few days after I arrived. It occurred in the parking lot of the hotel I was staying at (Kona Sheraton). I won't go into too much detail except to say that it was violent, I was knocked on the ground, bruised up, and some things were stolen. I am so grateful to God that I did not appear to sustain much in the way of lasting damage. But it was a real body blow to my state of mind and, as of this writing, I am still trying to absorb/integrate/process, or whatever one does to come to terms with an experience of this sort.  

In the early stages of this process, I discovered the existence of a place I had never heard of before: Peleaku Gardens Peace Sanctuary. Just reading the name appealed to me. (In fact, it was the discovery of this name that inspired the name of this website.) Plus I saw that it was in a part of the island that is very beautiful and lush and fruitful and quiet. So I paid a visit. This video was taken there. I will apologize in advance that the axis of the primary shot is stable, but the orientation isn't quite straight. Then again, I, too, was somewhat out of balance at the time...
