Gordon Gibson, a former lumber executive and member of the British Columbia legislators from 1953 to 1 liy MATtGAHET NESS HONOLULU (CP) It's often easier to decide where tu go than where to stay in Hawaii. The islands that make up Hawaii offer just about every style of accommodation. Everyone has heard of Hono- lulu. Tills is to Hawaii what Miami is to Florida or Aca- pulco to Mexico. It's botli a large city and a resort, where stores sell mu- umuus, men's floral shirts and souvenirs every day of tile week. High-rise hotels jos- tle small tourist apartments. Waikiki Beach is open to everyone, even in front of lux- ury hotels. if you like happenings, Hon- olulu is yours. There are is- land bus tours, a Pearl Har- bor cruise, Sea Life Park, are other diversions. But if you want Hawaiian relaxation, take off for the other islands. You should in- clude a couple anyway. When buying your ticket, ask about the cheap flying surcharge. ESTATE NOW KESORT Maui Island is a perfect re- treat but it also offers a dor- mant volcano and an old whaling village. Off the beaten track at Kihei, with its own ocean beach, is delightful Maui Lu resort, situated on 30 acres of palm trees and flow- ering bushes. Owner of the resort is Van- couver millionaire J. Gordon Gibson. He acquired the prop- erty some 15 years ago as a family holiday home. But he invited so many friends that overflowed the pool and house. To lake care ot his guests, Gordon build a second pool, Olympic-sized, in the shape of Maui Island and with Maui place names on the sides. Today paying guests have fun saying: "I'll meet you at Ka- hului airport or Lahaina or liana" and then swimming to the name. Gordon also ordered board feet of lumber from British Columbia to build a guest house. Somehow, feet arrived. Undaunted, he built 10 houses. Eventually an- other expansion raised the units to 100 and Maui Lu be- came a commercial resort in 1967. A dining house, called the Lor.ghcuse, was added, with a huge polar by Gor- tlie Polar Bar. If at Maui Lu you see a bare-chested man standing six feet inches and hosing the palm trees and bushes, speak to him. He'll be Gibson, the lumber cxccutive-lurned-pol- itician IK was in the B.C. legislature from 1953 to 1964 and a councillor of the North- west Territories from 1907 to and now in working retirement. For your next island, fly to Hilo aii-port on Big Island and arrange to drive and walk, around the chain of craters. All but one are dormant or extinct. You can stay at a small hotel on the rim of a crater. Tours pile in for the buffet lunch but you can have yours at the golf club in quiet- ness and explore after tours leave. This way you will have seen three quite different Hawaiian islands and experienced quite different accommodations. Special cruises in waters beat winter cliill Tennis, anyone? In the cold- boarding the Oriana there for est months of the year, Jan- uary and February, P and 0 Lines is offering special cruises through tropical waters and deck tennis is just one of the shipboard attractions. The P and 0 bean Carousel and Caribbean Carnival are on the Oriana and both include air-sea travel either to or from Barbados. This alternative gives Cana- dians the choice of travelling on the liner from Vancouver to the Caribbean via the Panama Janal and on to Barbados, with a return flight from there, or reversing the cruise by flying from Canada to Barbados and the cruise to Vancouver. Either way, such ports 33 San Francisco, Los Angeles, Puerto Vallarta, Balboa and Cristobal are on the itinerary. And if you don't like deck ten- nis, Oriana offers five decks full of sunning, swimming, dancing or relaxing. The Carousel cruise leaves Vancouver January 7 and ar- rives in Barbados January 21. Or you can start a Caribbean cruise there on January 21 re- turning to Vancouver on Feb- ruary 3. Similarly, there are two departure perls Vancou- ver or Barbados and two dates for the Carnival cruise.
