Kauai Vacation (Part 1)

Oh my Gosh, Vacation is just the Bestest!
And going to Kauai was really a dream come true.
So I took a picture of us on the plane on our way to our Bestest Vacation.
 This trip was for our 21st anniversary.  Which was suppose to be for our 20th - (last year) however, our precious little Lily was born instead. 

First thing - we got our rental car.
My husband was so thrilled with a convertible. Yeah - and I'm going to admit it was fun!

Every morning we took a walk on the beach  (right outside our hotel) and watched the sunrise.  I loved the air and the breeze.  The ocean was warm and the weather was perfect.   

We stayed at the Plantation Hale.  
Mark in front our hotel, Plantation Hale
Loved this hotel!   The registration and lobby was outside.  That really threw me for a loop - but I guess if the weather is that lovely - outdoors is the way to go. 

The fun thing about Kauai are the roosters.  
They roam the island.  We would see them along the side of the highway,  in the parking lot, near the beach and they are so pretty.
For all the roosters and chickens we saw, I never did see chicken poop.  

We also took a boat ride up to the Fern Grotto. (Grotto mean shallow cave)
Which if you look is that dark spot in the center of the picture is the cave with fern growing all around.  Apparently it's pretty big inside as people were married in there.  But a mud slide a couple years ago has made it too dangerous to access. 
We were entertained by the Smith Family.  One of the musicians was in the movie, Blue Hawaiian with Elvis Presley.   Such beautiful music and dancing. 

The people of Kauai are so friendly. We were a bit late for the boat ride, but not problem they just waited for us to go get our tickets and come back down to the boat.  (That just doesn't happen where I'm from.)

Okay I'm going to stop here and tell you more about our adventure in the next post. 

Happy Aloha Stitching
