Adventuresome people have requested hunting for glass floats, seeing a magic waterfall, "fairy forests" or going on Kauai jungle adventures. I love hiking Kauai's many trails,some being easy walks to more challenging. Trails can include undeveloped coastline, pristine streams and waterfalls or mountain overlooks.

"Whenever I'd visit, my dad would give me a list of out of the way places and their  history, sending me on my way in his old island beater car. As a younger kid, at times I found it a bit annoying. Looking back, I'm so glad he had such a love for Hawaii, his adopted home. I guess the apple doesn't fall so far from the tree."


Jay moved to the islands to become a caregiver for his mother after his father's passing and decided to stay for good.


Jay's father's books :

"After visiting various islands, I found the lush green "emerald island" of Kauai the most magical place I could ever imagine. I'd love to share some of my favorite spots on Kauai with you.

We will enjoy Kauai's bountiful food. I will share with you whatever is in season, picked fresh from my small farm. For the "no host" lunch we will experience local "grinds" eating at favorite eateries, or purchasing food for a lovely beach picnic. 
For the past few years, my wife Karen and I have been living on the Eastside, planting  a small fruit farm.
