  • My Love Affair with Lahaina

    Destination: Maui

    lahaina waterfront at sunsetThis is one of the things I love about Lahaina: the depth of the place. You cannot walk down Front Street without running into it. The town has history.

  • Hooking More Than Just Fish. Hawaiian Monk Seals At Risk.

    Destination: Kauai

Three o’clock.” Or “Double blow. Ten o’clock.” Today, however, the word of the day started with a "B," but it wasn't "blow."

  • Here fishy fishy fishy. Gone whale watching.

    Destination: Maui, Kauai

    Travel is hazardous to fingernails. I've only just sat down in seat 6B, and I've already ripped off two, one from each hand. But I don't mind. I've come to see my ragged fingernails as something else--a sign that I am once again doing that thing I love: traveling.
