If you are willing to shell out the asking price of $15,750,000 you can own a piece of iconic pop culture in the form of “Robin’s Nest”. You might remember this iconic location known as The Anderson House, or by the nickname Pahonu, was used as the backdrop for the 80’s hit show Magnum PI.
TMZ is reporting that the estate is up on the block and looking for a new owner, you could live your own version of our favourite PI’s life – theme song included! (not actually but TMZ has it after the link).
There is a wealth of information over at Magnum Mania about the estate and the show, including details on the estate, filming locations and tips on finding the ancient turtle pond behind the house.
Not familiar with the house, then take a look at this photo gallery of the Anderson House estate here.
As I sit here dreaming about Hawaii, it’s a daytime high of -18C (with the wind chill) outside of my house in Canada and it’s a balmy 24C Lahaina, HI. The heaviness of winter has set in and I am getting by with warm thoughts of rolling waves and golden beaches.
Throughout the year I find Aloha in my everyday life. This not only brings me closer to my love of all things Hawaiian but adds an appreciation to life as well. I love all things beach, surfing, island, ocean and sea life related. This article posted by the Huffington Post could not have been a more accurate depiction of me! Especially the part about finding sand everywhere that I never clean up. I have even found shells in my cosmetics bag after getting home from a trip!
A way that I brought some Aloha into my life this week was scoring tickets for the only Canadian tour date for Jack Johnson this summer. Now I can look forward to a little bit of Hawaii in my own backyard.
I also came across this segment on Monumental Mysteries profiling surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku last night. It makes my next visit to Hawaii not seem so far off in the distance when I can capture these feelings through these moments.
These are the ways I live Aloha in my own life. So I hope you’ll stay with me as I share my Aloha with the world.
