In Hawaii, it’s a law that no one can own the beach. It belongs to the people. Therefore, beachfront properties must make access to the beach available to the public every so many feet, etc. These are called “right of ways.” Below is a quick sketch of the right of way from Paiko Drive in Honolulu or “Paiko Right-Of-Way.” Paiko is the street that Jamie (my girlfriend) grew up on. I don’t know if it’s the official name of the beach, but I call it Paiko as well. Just as Jamie grew up on this street, she also grew up on this beach. In this first post of sketches from an afternoon at Paiko, in addition to the sketch of the right of way, there is another quick sketch of the beach, looking westward.
