Love Stories of Hawaii

Special Occasion

Tenth at Tunnels
Dedicated to Donna, my wonderful bride

Submitted by Sandy

Having discovered Kauai's enchanting north shore (shhhh!) several years ago when I covered the Hawaii market for a major food manufacturer, I thought that would be the perfect place to celebrate our upcoming tenth wedding anniversary. Planning is the key to success, and I shopped at one of our best local jewelers to find the perfect custom diamond anniversary ring for the occasion. I rented Duarte Hale, a delightful home right on the beach, with the picture-perfect view of Bali Hai. At precisely midnight, the beginning of our September 30 anniversary day, I suggested a stroll on the beach. Finding the perfect spot under the moon and stars, I popped the cork on a nicely chilled bottle of champagne. After several swallows of bubbly stuff, I "discovered" a small box in my pocket. The stones absolutely dazzled in the moonlight, and the memory still dazzles now, more than ten years later.
