Ke`anae Peninsula

Aloha! I never knew Hawaii had earthquakes, until I felt one yesterday. The trade winds were blowing yesterday and I have to confess, I thought it was just a really strong gust of wind coming through, rattling the house…like a dirt devil without the dirt. What did I know, I only remember experiencing one other …

Surfing Goat Dairy

Aloha! We were in tour mode after my daughter arrived on Maui for her first visit. So much to see and so little time to see it!  Luckily, after touring the Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery, we were directed up the road only a mile or so away to the Surfing Goat Dairy. Surfing…Goat… hmmm…do …

Iao Valley

The Iao Valley State Park is the sight of the Iao Needle. The unique shape of the needle has been formed by many centuries of erosion. The beautiful and sacred valley is the sight of the most epic battle in Maui’s history when Kamehameha I brought forces from the Big Island in 1790 to conquer …

Coconut Pancakes

I remember tasting coconut syrup for the first time back in 2001 during my very first visit to Hawaii. It was at Sam Choy’s restaurant on Oahu. All I remember about the experience was that there was a full size wooden boat inside the restaurant and the coconut syrup that was served with my pancakes. I could never …

Organic Spirits, Really.

What do you get when you mix organic sugarcane with desalinated deep ocean mineral water? A product that tastes as clean and pure as the process used to make it! Vodka!  Appropriately named, Ocean Vodka! The water starts out as a melting glacier and surprisingly enough ends up at 3000 feet below the surface off …

Eucalyptus Beauty

Meet the Rainbow Eucalyptus! Aren’t they just spectacular! We spotted these on our drive up the Hana Highway. The same day we found the happy lichen. The brown bark naturally strips away to reveal a number of colors and different shades of colors from greens, oranges, blues, pinks and purples. As unique as this tree …

The grounds at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa at Ka’anapali Beach were very pretty and well manicured. This seems to be a very popular wedding venue because of the beauty of the grounds. From what I understand, the Ka’anapali Beach is not wide enough for weddings to take place there, but the grounds …

Chasing Sunshine

Aloha! The humidity level in the house is at 77%. This is what happens after 4 days of constant rain in a home with no air conditioning. (The A/C thing is kind of a big deal for me if you haven’t noticed. It is starting to grow on me…I think…) I picked up a stack …
