Is this headland the source for the PPM song?  I thought it was some children's fairy tale/drug culture thing.

Yes, they were on Kauai in Hanalei and saw the mountain range which they thought looked like a sleeping dragon.  The altered the name of Hanalei to Hanalee so that it rhimed with sea and we all know the rest.  Well, those of us with gray hair anyway!

Hi Richard, That is a cool story. I loved Peter Paul and Mary and meet Peter a few years back in a DC Congressman's office. He played the guitar and sang live, Puff the Magic Dragon. A very nice man. I have a photo but because it was in a Congressman's office it might be appropriate for publication. But it sure brightened my day.

Hi William, you have a cool story yourself.  I've not had the pleasure of hearing any of them live.

I can see the resemblance to the dragon. Good for all that he  is still sleeping. Did not know the origin of the song but remember it well...

Loved that song.  Passed it on to my kids.  That song was a gift from my dad to me.  Be glad to see him come back.

Hi all and thanks for stopping by.  It's quite an old song at this point but a good one.
