"Hale" means home in Hawaiian. After a few days on the island, we checked in to a hale on the cliffs above Secret Beach on Kaua'i's north shore, truly one of the most beautiful pieces of earth we have ever seen. Friends arrived, and the festivities began. At the peak of our celebration, we had something like 19 people living under one roof -- one big, happy family, an 'ohaha nui.
