Polynesian Cultural Center Most Favored Tourist Attraction in Hawaii

I live within walking distance of the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, Hawaii. Each day I hear the drums beating from the Polynesian villages, and in the evening I can hear the roar of the crowd in response to the night show in the big amphitheater.


Hike Laie Falls Trail on Oahu Hawaii

Here in Laie, we are blessed with mountains on one side of us and the huge ocean on the other. There is one trail that we enjoy hiking, because there is the reward of a beautiful waterfall at the end. In fact, the hike is called the Laie Falls Trail. People actually come from all over the island to hike this trail. On the way up you can enjoy the panoramic views when you look back over your shoulder. Once you get to the falls, there is a refreshing pool that is perfect to cool off in.

One Whole Year Writing Hubs

A little over a year ago, I had never heard of a hub, other than how it is described in the dictionary –

* the center of a wheel
* center of interest

I never intended to stay on this long, but I guess I have a high learning curve, so it took me longer to grasp. Actually, I am still learning how to market my articles, about SEO, and a myriad of other things.

Have you ever eaten out of the back of a shrimp truck in Hawaii? No! Wow, you have been missing out! I live on the North Shore of Oahu within a few miles of some shrimp aquaculture farms where the shrimp are plentiful. Actually we have an ongoing battle between the North Shore Shrimp Trucks. No kidding! Some of them are stationary, and some move from place to place – why not – they are trucks!
