Kauai, Hawaii


Has winter gotten a grip where you live? Where do you go to find sun and warm?

Hawaii, of course. I have been 26 times to the tropical Paradise. But it has been 20 years since we went to Kauai. So, off we go.

The Northern most island of the Hawaiian chain, Kauai is lush and very green.

Knowing where to stay, you need a professional travel agent. Otherwise, you are under a cloud all day long. Typical of the islands, there is a dryer side and a wetter side. But on Kauai, wet is wetter than other islands.

The Kauai Marriott is a beautiful resort with everything you could want. It is very large with a huge swimming pool as the focal point. The sandy beach borders a bay with great shallow water. Not many waves for surfers, but some were trying. The Marriott offers complimentary airport and golf course shuttles. But we wanted to see the rest of the island, so we rented a car.

Lihue is at the southern tip of the island close to Poipu. This is ideal for sun and a slight breeze. Every morning about 11:30 we saw the clouds start to gather over the mountain in the center of the island. But they never bothered us.
