Just eight years ago, a corps of youthful, talented chefs banded together under a corporate-sounding moniker, the Hawaii Regional Cuisine group. Mainly, they had two things in mind: Their cooking would feature the produce, meat and seafood increasingly being farmed in the islands and not exported--everything from strawberries, hearts of palm, herbs and exotic fruits to crawfish, escargots, abalone, shrimp, fish, grass-fed veal, lamb and beef.

Hoku's at the Kahala Mandarin Oriental hotel, nestled in the Waialae Kahala residential area, has assembled a loyal following despite the changes in chefs since its opening three years ago. Sushi, tandoor-oven breads with ahi poke dip, Chinese-style steamed fish, stuffed oxtail soup, herb-crusted onaga (Hawaiian snapper) atop a bed of creamed spinach and icy towers of assorted fresh seafood are signature dishes.

When Raymond Kanehailua was a kid growing up in rural North Kohala on the Big Island of Hawaii, he and his buddies would slip off into the mountains and go "fluming." That meant sneaking onto Kohala Sugar Co. land and inner-tubing down man-made channels--or flumes--built to carry water from the wet interior of the Kohala Mountains to sugar cane fields on the dry plains.

The rain is coming down in sheets over this lush valley on the lava-veined flank of the Mauna Loa volcano. I am sitting on a screened-in porch, listening to it pelt against the tin roof of the Buddhist retreat center where I am staying. Eucalyptus trees do the hula in the wind, a mosquito circles my foot but doesn't land, and every so often one of the peacocks up at the temple shrieks like a tormented soul in hell.

It was a nightmare in Hawaii that Mark Monazzami can never forget . . . no matter how hard he tries. He emerged from the hospital Thursday and planned to join the search for his bride's body in the beautiful waters off Maui. It was there, he said, that she bled to death after the shark took off her arm. There are no eyewitnesses to the attack and no body.

Paul Theroux, as he so often does, said it best. "We're here," he said. "We don't have to go anywhere." "Here" is Hawaii--specifically, his hideaway home on a ridge above Pupukea on the North Shore of Oahu.

Near the golf courses, shopping malls and hotels of Kaanapali and Wailea, the two prime resorts on Maui's sunny western coast, there are places in-between, not so sprawling, pricey or perfectly arranged. Convention-goers and package vacationers who favor the big resorts pass by enclaves like Napili (north of Kaanapali) and Maalaea (at the head of Maalaea Bay) in a blink, briefly wondering what they're like.

God's in his heaven--somewhere over my left shoulder, I think, hidden by the mist on Mt. Hualalai. And here, in Holualoa town on Hawaii's Big Island, the first stop on my day in Kona Coffee Country, all's right with the world. A Beethoven piano concerto plays indoors at the Holuakoa Cafe, where owner Meggi Worbach is chatting with some regulars.
