As far as writing the lyric, people ask me, What is Vahevala It was just a sound that came through, Loggins continues. It caught my attention because it sounded like a place, so I made it up like a fantasy island that this kid came from, where he would sneak off the boat and party with the neighbors and sneak back on before the captain saw him. It was total escapist fantasy. What is most remarkable to me, when I look back on it, is how much joy is in it. Its such an I love my life song.

[She continues] I found this [the preceding quote] on the web site lyrical inspiration. Hope it helps.

I note further that, from for example http://www.slc.ca.gov/Misc_Pages/Tranquillon_Ridge
ExxonMobil Corporation and Sunset Exploration Company submitted an application to develop the same Tranquillon Ridge offshore resource (named the Vahevala Project). They propose to develop the oil and gas resources from an onshore site located on Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB)
Whether the project is named from the song I cant determine.
