The Alekoko Fishpond is near Nawiliwili Harbor and can be viewed from an overlook on Hulemalu Road, which was just up the road from where I lived once upon a time…
Legend has it the fishpond was built overnight by Menehune, Hawaii’s mischievous little people who were incredible engineers! Menehune aren’t seen very often, in fact they generally stick to the deep forest hidden away from the bigger folk. The Alekoko Pond was built by the Menehune overnight legend says by working together, each doing a small important part. They managed this amazing task by lining up for 25 miles, passing stones hand-to-hand to build the pond, which is incredibly beautiful!
Menehune are small but impact Kauai in a huge way…

And so do most small things!

Small amounts of time spent together adds up! Small stitches create big impact with just a few twists and turns here and there for fun! And so it is with the Menehune Shawl!
