day one {live from Kauai}


aloha! Kauai is a little slice of heaven, a tropical paradise of pristine white sandy beaches surrounded by peaks of volcanic mountains. The weather is just right, it actually feels like your body is the same temperature as the outside, with some sunshine thrown in for good measure. We rented a home across the street from the beach, the home itself is simple and beachy, but the location is perfection. Walking distance to town, fish tacos, shopping and shaved ice (island necessities). This morning Ruby and I did yoga in our lush backyard, it was just us, a few chickens, palms of every variety, ginger flowers and papaya trees. Next, Dave & I escaped for a walk/run on the beach, and then a trip to the farmer's market for fresh coconut water, vegan veggie rolls with lemongrass dipping sauce, and then off to the beach. Life is good, yes.

I can almost taste the fresh pineapple! My husband and I honeymooned in Kauai and adored every moment of it. Enjoy!

If you are looking for a delicious meal try Yum Cha in Poipu Beach. It overlooks the golf course by the Hyatt (I think) We aren't such the golf lovers, but it's a yummy place with E&O type ecclectic Asian food, good prices for Kauai and sweet service. They were great with Lilianna, too.

Enjoy your vacation!

georgous! I'm very excited for you and your family. May you have the time of your lives.
You've got to try out "hidden beach" for snorkeling. I swam with lot of turtles there. If you want I'll email you the directions to get there. Let me know. toniasarah at gmail dot com.

Relax and have fun!
