Santa: The Morning After

Ever wonder where Santa goes to unwind after the hectic rush of his Christmas deliveries?  Thanks to the sharp reporting of our family in Hawai’i, I’m happy to say I can solve the mystery for you.

Here he is, arriving at the beach by outrigger canoe (hey, the reindeer need a break too!)…  Keoni and I have a pipe-dream of converting a certain acre of land on the Big Island into a bed and breakfast (once the Idaho kids have finished school and we’re free to return to the Islands)–think Santa would like a place to stay?  Mele Kalikimaka!


I am... a writer, an explorer, a coffee-drinker, a recovering addict, a barefoot linguist, a book-dragon ("bookworm" doesn't cover it), a raconteur, a sailboat skipper, a research diver, a tattooed scholar, a pirate, a poet, a spiritual adventurer, a photographer, a few kinds-of-crazy, a joyful wife, a mom... a list-maker! :)

  1. You two would make wonderful B&B owners, making each guest feel like part of the family. I sincerely hope that dream comes true for you.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, Kana!


  2. Hawaii at Christmastide. Thanks to our President and his family, we now see how relaxing and still celebratory of Christ’s birth that can be. However, I would image the traditional Santa Claus suit could become slightly warm-ish?
