Hau’ole Makahiki Hou as we say here in the Islands. The first day of the year got off to a somewhat slow start as the electricity went off around 3:30 AM and was still off at 10:30 AM when I went out for a walk. I called KIUC (electric company) because my walking partner, who lives in a condo around the corner, was up and running after experiencing a brief blackout in the early morning hours. KIUC told me the outage was just on our end of the road, only on the one side. As I walked out, I saw the KIUC truck parked, presumably with the crew hard at work somewhere in the immediate area. Electricity was finally restored an hour or so later but by then I was out of the house for the day. Now on to your update:

For New Years Eve, we went into town to see the Decendants, with George Clooney, a movie I highly recommend. It was filmed on Oahu and Kauai. If you want to see some beautiful scenery, or show your friends where you live or hope to live, take them to the movie with you. The Kauai portion of the film is based primarily in Princeville and Hanalei. Don’t miss it.
I want to thank all of you that read this blog every week, check my website for the market stats each month and in general, keep in touch with me. It’s very rewarding to be able to help each and every one of you – whether buying or selling. I wish for you a healthy, loving, prosperous new year filled with wonder and surprise.
With much aloha,
