  • Kawika Kahiapo: Playing Guitar, Singing Songs & Inspiring Hula at Kani Ka Pila Grille

    Destination: Oahu

    kawika kahiapo playing guitar at kani ka pila grilleRight at 6:00 as the sun made its descent in Waikiki, throwing a golden glow on the volcanic crater known as Diamond Head--or Leahi in Hawaiian--three women strolled through the lobby of Outrigger Reef on the Beach. They beelined--as best as the women, one using a cane, could beeline--for Kani Ka Pila Grille, and parked themselves at a particular table--a four-top with a direct view of the stage where Kawika Kahiapo was tuning his slack key guitar.

  • A Day in Sunny Poipu

    Destination: Kauai

    old koloa sugar mill and old trucksWhile tramping around "Sunny Poipu" on Kauai's South Shore with my Big Girl Camera, my iPhone, and fellow photographer Anne, the periodic rain showers that darkened the skies—seemingly out of nowhere and, then, disappeared with equal ease—conspired to keep us moving from one end of Kauai’s South Shore to the other, as we resorted to photographic techniques to make the best of each situation.

  • October in Photos

    Destination: Maui

    keanae sign on road to hanaIn October, I became a full-fledged breadfruit fanatic. I mean, who wouldn’t, after tasting John Cadman’s dairy-free, egg-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, a.k.a. guilt-free, lilikoi `ulu pie. I also discovered an appreciation for beer. Or, at least, the Maui Brewing Co., because of their commitment to the Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. And I sampled some of Maui’s famous banana bread at Julia’s in Kahakuloa. But, alas, I arrived too late to determine whether I liked Julia’s better than Aunty Sandy’s in Keanae along the Road to Hana. Of course, that just means I’ll have to go back;-)
