Your Hawaii. Your Experience.

HAWAII Magazine readers love to talk story with us, because we all love Hawaii. So everyone can share, we’ve created a section in our magazine called, “Your Hawaii”—an assortment of short stories written by our readers about their Hawaii experiences.

In our current November/December 2008 issue, HAWAII Magazine reader John Cochran of Elyria, Ohio, shared with us the first time he got to see a monk seal on Kauai’s south shore. We couldn’t help but ooh… and ahh… at the photo.  

Your_Hawaii_Your_ExperienceFormer Hawaii resident Carol Banks Weber also sent us a few photos of her 5-year-old son, James, who had his first real taste of ramen at Ezogiku on Oahu. Weber, who now lives in Edmonds, Wash., has a fond spot in her heart for the Islands. Like many of our readers, she says she really misses Hawaii—from the food and culture to its people and environment.
