Aloha from all of us at GVR!

"Aloha" in the Hawaiian language can mean hello or goodbye. It also means love and affection. It may be used in combination with other words, such as aloha kakahiaka, which means good morning; aloha auinala which means good afternoon or aloha ahiahi which means good evening! Because of aloha's unique meaning and popularity, Hawaii is called the Aloha State.

Aloha is a Hawaiian symbol. Its meaning goes beyond any definition you can find about it in the dictionaries. In Hawaii, you hear aloha all the time and you are treated with aloha everywhere!


If you are on the island please join us on May 17th for the 36th Annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk. On May 31st support our keiki (children) by attending the 6th Annual Love Life Festival. 
Beachcombing for Glass Balls
Many treasures may be found beachcombing Kauai's long stretches of secluded white sand. Sunrise shells and cowrie shells are always fun to find but there is nothing quite like stumbling upon your very own glass ball! 

Glass fishing floats were once used by fishermen in many parts of the world to keep their fishing nets, as well as longlines or droplines afloat.

Large groups of fishnets strung together, sometimes 50 miles long, were set adrift in the ocean and supported near the surface by hollow glass balls or cylinders containing air to give them buoyancy. These glass floats are no longer being used by fishermen, but many of them are still afloat in the world's oceans, primarily the Pacific. They have become a popular collectors' item for beachcombers and decorators. Replicas are also being manufactured.

May Day by the Bay
Join the Celebration Festival in Hanalei at Waioli Beach Park on May 10th. May Day by the Bay features Hawaiian music performed by groups from throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
