About Peter Kay

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

A blowhole on Kauai Blowholes are this really cool phenomenon formed by empty lava tubes that have one end near the water and the other end facing upward. An incoming wave forces itself in the tube on the water side and the resulting pressure spots out the top - not unlike the blowhole of a
