Aloha

from Kauai!
It's so amazing being in an tropical island paradise. It's been so much fun and jam packed with activities so far. Especially enjoying the time with ohana ("Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind." Lilo, from Lilo and Stitch).
We arrived Friday afternoon and after a quick lunch at Mermaids in Kapa'a we headed back the airport to pick up our niece who island hopped from San Deigo to Maui to Oahu then finally to Kauai. 3 islands in one day, but not on purpose. Her flights got a little diverted. :)
We're staying in the north shore in the Princeville community. We have amazing ocean views and it's lush and rains a lot on this side of the island.
The view of Bali Hai from the Princeville Resort, next to the complex we're staying at. The sun sets right behind this mountain range and is breathtaking.
Our ocean view from the Lanai. Spending lots of time out there and even bbq'd Sunday night watching the sun set. Saturday afternoon we watched a hula competition in Poipu.
Shipwreck beach in Poipu. Poipu is in the south shore and doesn't rain quite as much as the north shore but it's just as lush. Jimmy and I stayed in the south shore 5 years ago.

Lots more to blog about, especially our ATV ride yesterday, but wanna send this off for now. Tried blogging yesterday but it got lost crossing the pacific and never showed up on blogger. Posted by Picasa

Yahoo Grilfiend!!! Its as beautiful as I remember. Do you miss me? : .)

Billy misses you!!! She acquiesced to about 5 minutes of petting and then retired to the hall and twitched her tail. I could tell that she was unhappy that I wasn't you!!! hee!!!
