THESE GORGEOUS PICTURES ARE COURTESY OF MY DEAR FRIEND KEN YOUNG. HE IS AN AWESOME PHOTOGRAPHER AND I SUCK AT IT. If you want to see more of his work or contact Ken, please just let me know.

It rains a lot but it’s usually a light warm rain. Mostly it rains at night or is supposed to…
This is the rainiest city in the world but you just don’t seem to mind when you live here. That’s what makes our area so plush and green. Actually, Hilo (which is about thirty miles away) is really the rainiest city. Our area (Kalapana Seaview) is mostly nice because we’re right at the ocean and the clouds blow away pretty quickly. Kalapana means “hole in the sky”. And through the hole peeks the sun.

We wake up when the sun does, then rush to get closer to watch the sun rise and EXPERIENCE it. It’s a GREAT way to start your day. We either go onto the roof or walk across the street and stand on the cliff over the ocean. If we're "really" lucky, we'll catch a glimpse of our neighborhood pod of dolphins out looking for breakfast.

The sky is brilliant. Sunsets, also, are amazing. Each rainbow is cause for comment – “ooh, look at that!” like we’ve never seen a rainbow before. At night when there are no clouds, there is a blanket of stars and planets. Amazing.

Most times we offer a prayer of thanksgiving for being alive and being able to live here in Hawaii.

We're also building the castleinhawaii website as we build the bed and breakfast.

Please take a moment to check it out:

Love to hear from you what you think about the website.. Love it? Hate it? Why??
