  • Gone to Kalalau: Practicing the Art of Doing Nothing.

    view of kalalau cathedrals and waterfallsKauai is known as The Garden Island. It's quiet. It's casual. It's rural with lots of green spaces between small, one-time plantation towns.

    cutting nets at schnitzer steel as part of nets to energy programA whole container of ghost nets is now making its way to Oahu, thanks to the generosity of Matson Shipping.
