The west side of Kauai is a special place for me because I taught at Waimea High School for three years in the early 80's. I've wanted to make this video for the longest time. I hope you like my rendition!

Beautiful John, I love that song. I first heard it on a Pure Heart album many years ago, the same holiday I took the following photograph:

One of my favourite places on Kauai (along with the Kauluapaoa Heiau), and one I'll be visiting again in 5 weeks time. Thanks for reminding me what I have to look forward to. I may just rip the audio from your video to an mp3 so I can play it in the car when I get there :)

Aloha John! Great video and incredible scenery. I think you sold me on visiting Kauai on my next trip to the islands. Mahalo for sharing.

Great video, John! Your vocals on this one are especially fine - very nicely sung, and a lovely setting...... like a mini-vacation for those of us trapped on North America.....

Mahalo, friends! I really appreciate it! Big Kahuna, that's a fantastic photo with the rainbow! For those who've never been there, the view of Kalalau Valley is awesome, so if you go to Kauai don't miss it!

Let's not tell them about Glass Beach though, eh ? We'll keep that little secret to ourselves ;)

Well, at least until I've collected a bagfull of red glass.

Just came across this while looking for something else. Yeah, you were right. Hardly worth going there unless you carry on around the road behind the beach to see the hidden Chinese(?) graves. Quite moving, and I never even knew they were there.
