This is a favorite walk along the shore and dry scrub at Alan Davis. Part of the Kaiwi Shoreline, the King's chair or Pele's chair is a rock formation that sits on the cliffs there and appears as a giant throne viewed from just the right angle. This painting is from the small cresent of beach there. It is a nice place to cool off, and kids like to get in the water by jumping off the rocks that jut out toward the open sea. Just below the road to Makapu`u lighthouse, the area was once known as Awawamalu, the location of a Hawaiian village. Later, Alan Davis' property, Wawamalu, was washed away as the 1946 Aleutian Tsunami poured across the shoreline and up into Kealakipapa Valley leading up to the Makapu`u gap.
