The Hawaiian Goose or Nēnē, Branta sandvicensis, is a species of goose endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. It shares a recent common ancestor with Branta canadensis, the Canada Goose. The official bird of the State of Hawaii, the Nēnē is exclusively found in the wild of the islands of Maui, Kauai and Hawaii.

These photos were taken on our trip to Hawaii in February,

Nani! Nani! E Hoÿonani! (Praise Him! O Praise Him!)   3 comments


Nani! Nani! E Hoÿonani! (Praise Him! O Praise Him!) 
Hawaiian Hymn
Composed by Lorenzo Lyons

Praise him joyfully and with thanksgiving,
Listen Jesus to my prayer (my request),
Release me of my troubles,
Calm my sorrows.

Together we lift our voices in praise,
(By you) is the sacred forest lush and green,
(By you) are the uplands blanketed with flowers of tranquillity,
(By you) is light set upon the mountain tops
as darkness flees and day approaches,
So too do you bring happiness from despair.

Oh evil spirits
Here stands the Messiah, the Savior, the Faith
Standing, bringing beauty and song to all things
The day is at peace and all things rejoice.

Praise him! praise him! Oh praise him!
His love, let it be refrained,
He is our Ruler! By him do we all claim victory!

Dondero’s – Kaua’i Dining   4 comments

We went to a very nice restaurant last evening – Dondero’s at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa.  This restaurant is located on the lush and beautiful grounds of the Grand Hyatt.  Indoor and Outdoor seating is available.  I highly recommend outdoor seating.  The views of the ocean and hotel gardens are breathtaking.


Our experience began with a chat with the chef who was coming back from picking some fresh herbs…


He gave us a run down on the menu in full detail!  Oh My!


The food superb, the service was excellent and we definitely want to come back.
