Kauai Staycation

I've lived on this tiny archipelago in the middle of the Pacific for almost 16 years now. Maui, is where I landed (after a brief stint in American Samoa) and Maui is where I have stayed. Yes, I've spent some time Oahu, The Big Island, Kauai and even Lanai, but never really enough time to get a proper feel for them. At least not since I've lived in Hawaii.
 So for the first time in a long time, Carlos and I decided to forgo some exotic international vacation that requires visas and shots and just stay home. Instead of another 10+ hour flight, we chose to head over to the Garden Isle in a local puddle jumper.  So glad we decided to do this. Kauai's the real deal. Still so raw, wild and absolutely breathtaking. Hope it's not another two decades before we get back.

Been looking for a sunrise shell for over 15 years! Finally found a piece of one!




Lucky we live HAWAII!
