Our oldest son has his boat in Hanalei Bay, on the north side of Kauai, Hawaii.  He has come through Hurricane Iselle just fine, but Hurricane Julio is approaching.  It will pass north of the islands by a hundred or so miles, but should throw off some significant swell as it passes.  We are hoping that the swell will not start breaking offshore.

Kevin, we're saying a prayer or two. 

There are live web cams at several locations around the bay, and we will be watching. 

Kevin, stay off the boat.


  1. Julio turned north above Kauai thankfully.
    As of this time the swells are still about 2-3 feet.
    Fortunately the big swells never came as Julio diminished in strength and stayed far enough away to the north.
