  • 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
