It was roped off to show that swimmers were not allowed in the water and the lifeguards were constantly patrolling to keep everyone safe from the large shore break. It was fun to sit on the sand and watch the powerful ocean…

I often see people, quite often those who are sent to live here for a few years, frustrated that others won’t share the location of some of the hidden treasures of the island with them.

Friendship Lessons And The Ka’ena Point Trail

Today I am thankful for friends who reach out. I am very guilty of being a bad friend when it comes to staying in touch with people. Maybe even the worst! I get so caught up in my own world and whatever I am doing day to day that I tend to forget to reach out to people even if…
