The Canoe House

Anniversary’s are special events.  Especially for me, because I get to sample someone else’s cooking instead of mine.  The decision to where to go for an Anniversary dinner can be a daunting one.  If the dinner event doesn’t meet expectations, and believe me, expectations are high, then the event gets remembered for all the wrong reasons.

Mauna Lani

The Mauna Lani Bay resort offers a rich selection of relaxation and culinary delights.  Not only are guests treated to great food and lodging, but spectacular sunsets.  A traditional Hawaiian ritual of greeting the evening, and the beginning of  a feast of tasty delights to embrace the visitors.


Besides good food and pampered lodging, the Mauni Lani resort offers World Class shopping and Adventures that only a true Hawaiian vacation can deliver.  The coast line views are amazing and breathtaking, the mountain views are majestic and awe inspiring.  Everything from biking, hiking, golfing, snorkeling, to just doing nothing, can be found here.   With over 101 Things to Do in Hawaii, the Big Island, you’ll need many more vacations to cover it all.

Well, now you know what was for dinner on our special day.  The long ride home back to Hilo was filled with conversations about every detail savoring this unique experience.   Also, this special date in our lives is another memory to be relived, over and over again.  We’ve been through a lot of this year.  Open Heart Surgery, a Cancer Scare with Melanoma, just staying employed and keeping our heads above financial waters.  It’s all about decisions, and making what we believe, the right decisions.  We cannot predict the future, but like the ancient Polynesian explorers that discovered Hawai’i, we can only plan and steer our fate in an ocean of uncertainty, and let Akua (God) decide our future.
