Hula Show At The Princeville Shopping Center – Kauai

Want to catch a hula show while visiting the Garden Island? Every Saturday at 1:30 a small, but dedicated group of ladies perform in the food court of the Princeville Shopping Center.

Kapaia Stitchery – The Best Fabric Store On Kauai

Looking for a fabric store on Kauai? Kapaia Stitchery is my favorite. It is the longest operating (48 years), locally owned, quilting fabric store in Kauai County.

Kilauea Stone Dam Is Back Open – Wai-Koa-Trail – Kauai – Hawaii

One of my favorite walks has always been to the Stone Dam on the Wai Koa Loop Trail in Kilauea. Since the 2018 Kauai flood, it has been closed due to rain and flood damage with an uncertain date of opening. The property recently exchanged hands as well, so the ability to visit the stone…

Albatross Courting Dance – Love is in the Air in Princeville – Hawaii

It is always exciting when one happens upon an albatross courting dance. Last month I heard the distinctive sounds of two albatross just four doors down from Honu Point Vacation Rental. I grabbed my phone and sat down on the other side of a hedge to watch the show. Soon one of the birds came…

“Knee Deep” – Zac Brown Band – Theme Song for Honu Point

Every Tuesday night my girlfriends and I head into Lihue to go dancing (Tom is not a fan so he stays home). For years Rob’s Good Times Grill (think “Cheers”) on Rice Street has allowed our dance group to play our music from 7:30 to 10:00. We have fun dancing Swing, Cha Cha, Niteclub 2-Step,…
