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.
