What do I think about kite surfing? It's a ridiculous phenomenon when you think about it.

Located at 47 Kihapai St. in Kailua Town, the comfort and peaceful environment become tangible when you step inside the shop. They provide everyone with great coffee & treats, free WiFi, and island style arts & culture. It's everything a small time coffee shop

We always think we are prepared. Yet when the tsunami from the Japan quake was on its way to Kailua, or more recently tropical storm Flossie, there were lines thirty cars long at the gas stations and a mad rush on the Safeway and other local grocery stores for water, flashlights and batteries. And these are just the things we immediately think about.

Are you really prepared if a disaster did strike? As we have recently learned, making it through the initial disaster is
Hawaii Route 61, often called the Pali Highway, is the main highway connecting downtown Honolulu with the windward side of O'ahu and Kailua. From downtown, it traverses up Nu'uanu Valley and the residential neighborhood of Nu'uanu, passes through the Nu'uanu Pali Tunnels, and descends to Kailua. ...continue
