It all stared back in the 70s. I was reading an encyclopedia Ha ha and saw that the Big Island of Hawaii had everything I thought I needed to grow and flourish as a human. I had caught the surfing bug as some would say and after a year of surfing in California I decided I was ready for Hawaii!
I was amazed at how the people were close and cared about other people. I was treated with respect and the people of the Big Island showed me so much Aloha that I really never gave it a thought that I would ever leave! But I did leave after several years only to return almost 10 years ago.
Here I am I think it was 1980?
