Photo: Reminiscing about Kehena Beach (Red Road, Hawaii)

I never tire of this place. So many magical memories created here. I hope we have another Sunday Funday again someday, on the lawn like in the years past, when we would share locally grown food. It was days like that that inspired Ten Thousand Hours in Paradise, my upcoming book about how Hawaiian changed me. It’s a sort of love letter to the island, too — there are challenges, don’t get me wrong, but I feel very lucky to be able to live here. 🏝🥑🌺 #LuckyWeLiveHawaii
