Kamehameha I also known as Kamehameha the Great who's full Hawaiian name is Kalani Paiʻea Wohi o Kaleikini Kealiʻikui Kamehameha o ʻIolani i Kaiwikapu kauʻi Ka Liholiho Kūnuiākea (... whew!!!!) aka "The Lonely One@ was a #Hawaiian king. He conquered most of the Hawaiian Islands, formally establishing the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi in 1810. By doing this, Kamehameha ended all bloodshed that has been occurring throughout all islands for centuries finally bringing peace in the lands. By developing alliances with colonial powers, Kamehameha preserved #Hawaii 's independence. Kamehameha is remembered for the Kānāwai Māmalahoe, the "Law of the Splintered Paddle", which protected the human rights of non-combatants in time of war.
In honor of the King and his mighty Koa warriors, we created the #Koa wood Oceania Watch by #Pacific Standard Time Company. Order yours today at www.pacificstandardtimecompany.com
I totally love colour and there is nothing more inspiring or beautiful than the natural colours of the ocean. It's my happy place. This taken straight after a dip just now in the rock pools. Cosy Corner, Tallows Beach, Byron Bay. My heaven 💙
