  • Guest Blogger Keryn Means: Redefining Family Travel in Hawaii

    Destination: Kauai

    toddler swimming under water by keryn meansThe clear blue water lapped over my feet as I sat in my beach chair just off-shore. The mountains towered behind me and a palm tree lent a little shade. From this vantage, I could see my toddler in his goggles diving under water again and again, smitten by the fish. I watched as my husband threw our little guy into the air and heard his squeals of glee. This was why we had come to Kauai—for uninterrupted family time. As I thought about how much we all were benefiting in this break from the norm, my aunt walked over and plopped down in a chair next to me. She smiled, and her lips said it all. This was paradise, and we were living it together.

  • Shooting the Moon over Diamond Head

    Destination: Oahu

    awaiting the full moon over diamond headI stood outside Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach one night last week for a couple hours. I watched as the setting sun painted the shallow waters of Waikiki the softest, most beautiful blue I've ever seen. It does this almost every night, and yet each time I visit Waikiki my breath skips and I ooh and aah all over again. I know the color has something to do with the angle of the sun and the sandy ocean bottom, but I am still amazed each and every time. I've not seen this exact color of blue anywhere else in Hawaii, and as you can imagine I've seen my share of oceans at sunset. I can't begin to describe this particular blue. It's a powdery sky blue. A soft turquoise blue. It's a quiet blue. Serene blue. All this. And something else, too.
