Deerfield renamed Hale Kai
Our new community member, Donna O'Meara, has renamed her home on Shangri La Circle. Formerly Deerfield, it is now "HALE KAI", which is Hawaiian for "ocean house". Pronounced HAH-lay KA-ee.
Donna says, "After living in Hawaii for 3 decades I needed to bring a bit of Aloha to Whidbey".
First picture is a "before" shot to remind you how bad it looked after the March 16th storm. Now after many resident volunteers pitched in to clean up and do repairs - WOW! It looks great! Special kudos to everyone who worked so hard to make our Shangri-La beautiful again.

Fishing in 1953 or 1954
A bit of history: Picture is Sandy Roberts (holding the netted fish) and friend fishing off Race Lagoon. The fish is a large king just caught by Sandy. The boat is a 14 foot plank hulled Storm King outboard that Ron & Sandy's parents (Trevor & Harriette Roberts) rented at the Shangri-La Shores resort. They had 5 of these and another 5 slightly larger 16 foot Reinell inboards. You can barely make out the "Whido-Isle" logo on the side of the boat. Quite a catch, Sandy!
