  • Your Big Day

    There's no question that Hawaii is one of the country's foremost honeymoon destinations. Romance is in the air in Hawaii. The white, sandy beaches, turquoise water, swaying palm trees, balmy tropical breezes and perpetual summer sunshine put people in the mood for love.

  • Guide to Hawaii's Romantic Nature

    When it comes to romance, Hawaii looks like love, feels like love, smells like love, sounds like love and tastes like love. There is no question about it: Hawaii is sensuous.

  • From the Archives: The Tavern at Princeville by Roy Yamaguchi

    roy's hawaiian fusion cuisine gift card in grassMy husband and I are on vacation this week, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Three years ago, on October 22, we celebrated at a new restaurant on Kauai. During our 25 years of marriage, I've watched other friends marry, as well. Some stay married. Others do not--even those I thought were made for each other. The same can be said for restaurants on Kauai: Some come; some go. But not The Tavern at Princeville by Roy Yamaguchi. Its menu items may have changed since we visited in 2010 but the place is still doing well, based on its Yelp reviews.

  • Wedding Flowers in My Refrigerator

  • Brides and Rain. Oil and Water.

    kalalea mountain at sunset after a day of rainAfter teasing us all morning, Mother Nature got serious on the heels of Saturday’s Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary Ocean Count. I was stationed along Kauai’s South Shore coastline at Mahaulepu-Makawehi on a bluff near the beach known as Shipwreck's in Poipu. (Note: Hawaiian name is Keoneloa Bay and, yes, the elevated location atop these bluffs are fabulous for watching the sunrise and the whales.) By noon, the sky off to the southwest lowered to a scowl. To go with it, the sky emitted a growl or two, and I high-tailed it for home on the opposite side of the island. Read More
  • The Tavern at Princeville by Roy Yamaguchi

    When I think of a tavern, I think of a kind of place that’s dark, dank and ancient. Something cave-like. I think of establishments in European basements. I think of smoke-filled bars in the rough part of town with Harleys parked out front and gruff men wearing tattoos, leather and red bandanas. When I think of a tavern, I do not think of good food. I hardly think of food, at all. The Tavern at Princeville by Roy Yamaguchi on Kauai’s North Shore is not like any tavern I know. (Disclosure: I am not an expert on taverns, mind you.) Read More
  • Two Things about Living on Kauai

    roy's hawaiian fusion cuisine gift card in grassI just found a Roy's restaurant gift card in a purse I hardly use that hangs on the back of my desk chair.  A pink lotus flower blossoms in one corner of the card.  The words “Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine” reverse out of a stripe of green above Roy’s signature restaurant logo.  Over the years, something sticky had adhered to the front of the card; it stuck to my thumb.  I turned the card over.  A series of other restaurant logos decorated the back—seven other restaurant concepts at which the card would be accepted.  None of them operated on Kaua’i.  This card turned out to be way better than finding a $20 in an old pair of jeans.

  • Zipline Thrills: Screaming Like a Rock Star in Hawaii

    Zipline tour on MauiFor some people I know, hiking the Kalalau Trail on Kauai makes them break into a sweat.  Others I know won't even think about driving the famous road to Hana.  For those people, I do not recommend ziplining. But, if you have a general respect for high places, like I do, and you like speed, like I do, then, you'll love ziplining. It's still a relatively new adventure in Hawaii. In fact, you won't even find ziplining adventures on all the islands. Read More
  • Vacations Are Good for Your Health and Marriage

    couple walking on beach, closeup of legsIt’s no surprise to hear that studies show vacation can lower blood pressure, lower stress hormones and generate overall feelings of well-being. For me, vacation gave me a new home. My husband and I moved to Hawaii for the same reasons we vacationed here: The warm weather, the ocean and the myriad of activities available to us--from golf, running and hiking to paddling outrigger canoes, snorkeling and diving.  Now that we live in Hawaii, we get asked all the time: When you live in paradise, where do you go on vacation?

  • Dancing Red Tailed Tropicbirds

    At Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, we (or, at least I), call these seabirds, “Valentine’s Birds.” For two reasons: 1) They arrive at the refuge in early February, around Valentine’s Day, every year; and 2) Their tail feathers and bill are painted a striking red. Read More
