Help Wanted!!!

Hello Wings Customers.  We have developed such a great relationship with our customers over the past 15 years that I thought I would use this space to ask all customers who know folks on the island to see if anyone is interested in part-time work as a Customer Service Agent.  We currently have Gina working part time and she is awesome.  Our helper, Kimo, who was great to be with and to have greeting you all, he is not well, cancer, which we hate, and he can’t return to work.  And as you know there is a shortage of help everywhere so I am reaching out to the customers, to you, many of whom return to Kauai time after time and develop long term relationships with local folks here.  Have them email us, if they want a great job…

2020 The Year of the Covid. What a long year it has been. In the beginning, last spring, once my financial panic subsided as the Cares Act became a reality, it felt more like a vacation. And my friend Malcolm Wright, and I hiked almost every trail in Kokee State Park. Not bad for a…

Tropical Flowers

Absolutely beautiful flowers at our office, thanks to Aloha Tropical Flowers on the Big Island.  My friends Chuck and Sue own and operate an anthurium farm near Hilo, where all the best flowers are grown.  They ship them monthly over to us on Kauai, nicely wrapped, never damaged and these flowers last almost three weeks,…

Jurassic Waters finally launched

I am so pleased to announce the launch of my book.  I spent many years writing this and it’s finally here! This is an exciting and adventurous read about…, many things:  life after death; underwater evolution from PreCambrian period until 400 million years ago; sea monsters like you wouldn’t believe, and they are real!  And also a semi-mad scientist who really believes in his work, whatever the costs. And it’s about Hawaii, about the spirit, the tenacity, the beauty of the land and the people. Hope you enjoy, buy it on Amazon and share with your friends and please let me know what you think here in FAQ’s.

Best Boat Ride Ever!

I really want to let you all know about the Na Pali Experience. My daughter Mary and I agree that it is the best boat tour we have ever done on Kauai. We always went on the larger catamarans because I wanted to be comfortable, but Nate at Na Pali Experience has designed the ultimate…

Canyon and Tree

I love this photo!  About three weeks ago I was staying at a cabin in Kokee and walked along the Waimea Canyon rim nearby.  This gnarly old Ohia tree braces itself against the winds that blow from the east, and somehow it just seems like a perfect fit now.  Thought I’d share this with you all.

So excited to be here!

Hello World!  This is a new experience for me, my first blog post.  I placed this blog onto our Wings site because over the years I have had so many inquiries about Kauai, things to do, island life, what’s it like raising children so far from the mainland….just a whole range of things, so I thought I might share some of my experiences here, and hopefully get feedback from a few people and just see if maybe this can be of use to a few folks out there who are thinking about visiting Kauai. I have not by any means done all of the different activities here, and I am sorry about that.  I am trying to gain a bit more knowledge for folks but it’s a bit slow going.  I still have only ever been to one luau, Smith’s,…
