Lānaʻi – Island Wrapped in a Rainbow

26 Oct

Learning Hawaiian Culture with Auntie Irene at the Four Seasons LanaiBarbara Weibel, of Hole in the Donut blog, was our guest blogger in September, 2012. Barbara really “got” the essence of Lanai – the unusual combination of sophistication and genuine Hawaiiana – what we here think of as the more genteel traditions of Hawaiian culture. From learning ʻukulele with the aunties at the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, to golfing on one of the island’s stunning golf courses, to lingering at Hotel Lanai with all home-made items for breakfast, Barbara appreciated the moments that make a place stand out – not with bright lights in this case, but with a quiet force that will lure you back again and again.

Please enjoy reading Barbara’s articles over on her blog:

Barbara also featured numerous Photos of the Day from her trip; be sure to just search her site for “lanai” and you will see them – with an occasional porch story mixed in! Easier still, you can visit Barbara’s Lanai Flickr set to see all of these gorgeous images in large format.
