Kauai, Hawaii– I even like saying it!! Dr. T had a conference in Hawaii a few weeks ago, so while he worked, I played and played. We had a great time.
I was smitten the minute we landed on the island. The people are friendly and helpful. We stayed at the on Sheraton Poipu Beach. The drive there was even beautiful.
The Sheraton has a full calendar of things to do throughout the day- most are free. I took advantage of a morning yoga class on the beach. Other classes included hula lessons, lei making, surfing lessons, ukelele lessons, and much more! The two things we didn’t have time for were surfing lessons for Dr. T and Ukelele lessons for me. There is always next time!
|I loved this Starry Night painted surfboard in one of the gallery windows.|
|There are chickens and roosters all over the island- I mean everywhere. More than Key West for sure!!|
My favorite thing about Hanapepe is that The Westernmost Bookstore, Talk Story, is at the end of the main street!! Oh My Goodness- I loved it! They sell new, used, and collector’s books plus vinyls! What more do you want? Well- of course, they have a cat named Celeste who runs the place!!
|My happy place!!|
|You can follow Celeste on Instagram.|
|We loved this little town both times!!|
|The first part of our drive in the canyon was beautiful.|
|The higher in elevation we got, the more clouds we saw. When we got up to this|
beautiful spot to look off over into the ocean, it was cloudy and raining. We decided then that a helicopter ride would be wonderful!
|My hiking buddies!|
|I put this picture on Facebook, and a friend of Dr. T’s asked why he had a rooster in his pocket! Roosters are everywhere!|
|It’s a beautiful place.|
|Getting the pig out of the imu.|
We also went on a Sunset Dinner Cruise- Holo Holo Charters at Port Allen. This Cruise was wonderful! Our captain said we went on a perfect day. He was able to take us in caves that in the 5 years he’s worked there, he’s only been able to go in about 10 times. We were lucky!!
|Inside the volcano crater.|
We took so many pictures- it’s hard to decide which ones to show.
|All the white specks in the trees are birds.|
|Traffic was backed up at times.|
My kids and nephews call my mother, Nene. They all about died in 1996 when they saw this sign in Maui telling them not to feed the Nenes. It has been a family memory/story ever since.
When I saw this sign, I had to take a picture of it and send it to all the kids, my sister, and my mother. They got a big kick out of it, and our group text was full of memories of this trip!!
This jumper is at a great price here.
This dress was perfect for the luau. It can be found here.
This is a great shot because it includes a chicken. It is fun to see
them running through parking lots and all around!!
The back on this is open and a little too revealing for the 55-year-old, but I made do!! It can be found here.
