This past Saturday I was privileged to take photos of the paddling out for baby Kaia. It was a memorial service and a celebration of life and love. Many of the Zautner friends showed up as early as 8AM, many bearing flowers and many brought their surf boards to paddle out. The scattering of ashes in the ocean together with the scattering of hundreds of flowers is very a poignant event – something that touches our heart and soul. I decided to share some of the photos and ask that you remember the Zautners in prayer. Mahalo.

I chose to turn left.
Initially I thought turning left was a mistake because I missed the actual setting of the sun. However, it was not that big of a mistake because when I arrived at Kalama Park (the far North End) I was mesmerized by the colorful hue the Maui Sunset afterglow had. And that’s where the title “magical” came from….
