    Destination: Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, Oahu

    mokolii at dawn

    This lovely image by my co-worker Nancy Daniels was taken on Oahu. Can you identify the location? What I like about this image is the absolute stillness it evokes--of the tempestuous Pacific Ocean, no less. For the third year now, Outrigger is making available images like these to keep Hawaii close to your heart--and hand and eyes. These images are available to download and use as your computer's wallpaper.

What I discovered was the beautiful evening light embracing three hula practitioners who were dancing along the waterline, their reflections shimmering in the retreating surf.

  • Wicked Brings Broadway to Honolulu

    Destination: Oahu

    wicked playbillI must be the only woman in America who has yet to see Wicked. That was my conclusion after asking about a dozen girlfriends if they wanted to go see the play running in Honolulu through January 12, 2013, and they all said something on the order of, “I’ve already seen it in New York, London, Chicago, Los Angeles, _________.” To be fair, Hawaii is a bit of a distance from the epicenter of theater in the United States, and I hadn’t ventured to Broadway since moving to Hawaii right before that other end-of-the-world scare—Y2K.
