LAHAINA, Hawaii - "Here, take this one," Elisa said, lifting an orchid lei from her shoulders and draping it on Laurel's. "Aloha. " My wife, Laurel, and I were in the tender queue with Elisa, our "port shopping specialist," at Lahaina on Maui, waiting to be shuttled to Cunard Line's Queen Victoria for the final six nights of our 14-night round trip from Los Angeles to the Hawaiian Islands. Laurel had put off buying a lei and the vendors were sold out, so Elisa had generously given hers - a typically Hawaiian act of sharing.

The big question on the PGA Tour has gone from when will Tiger Woods win to when will he lose. Woods won for the sixth time in nine tournaments Sunday, finishing with a 17-under-par 271 to defeat Ernie Els by one stroke and win the National Car Rental Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

They're usually for rent, some for less--or not much more than--a hotel room. Hawaii's condos are often next door to the fanciest hotels. Others hide away on cliffs overlooking crashing surf, on deserted beach-fronts, along manicured green fairways or in private-entrance Waikiki high-rises.
