Kauai-Day 4

I slept in until 6:15, oh ya! Still watched the sunrise. It has been rising about 6 and is spectacular to watch.
Not in focus, but you get the idea

We headed straight to see Opaekaa falls


Then we explored and drove around. We stumbled upon this really awesome park.
We found a little rope swing. Erin jumped into the stream. It was a bit chilly for me.

  Next we headed to a hiking trail with a gorgeous lookout.

Kauai-Day 3

I don't know what it is with me and sleeping in, but sometimes it is just not possible! We are on vacation and I woke up at 5:45! Seriously!? At least I can watch the sunrise each morning.

Today we left by 8:30 and headed to the West Side of the island. We went to Waimea Canyon. It took about 1 1/2 hours to get to the top from out resort, but the view was completely worth it. It was gorgeous. I keep feeling like I'm in Jurassic Park and I expect to see a dinosaur run by me. It's very prehistoric.






After the canyon, we hit up a taco stand for lunch. We found a glass beach! It was very similar to the one we frequent in Ca, in Fort Bragg. Then we headed to shipwreck beach. Is it picture perfect or what?!

We spent some time there swimming, watching people jump off the cliff and napping on our straw mats.

Tonight's dinner and my date!


Kauai-Day 2

This morning I woke up nice and early. I crawled out of bed at 6am and was faced with this gorgeous view at the door.

Today we celebrated 3 years of marriage! It feels like it was just last year that we got married, not 3! But it also feels like its always been Erin and I. I love being a wife and know the Lord has placed the two of us together. That is why we are in Kauai after all, it's our anniversary trip! Pretty sure this will be better than our honeymoon. We were just talking about that tonight. Mexico is overrated. Kauai=so much better. 

We headed out the door at 7:30am and hit the road in our sweet convertible. 



We went to see the spouting blow horns on the South Shore. (We are in Kapaa, on the East Shore, just so ya know :)).  These were very cool!
 Then we headed to Poipu Beach and did some late morning snorkeling! Erin's sinuses are still bad, so he wasn't able to dive down. Mine were just fine! Praise the Lord. We brought our own snorkels and fins so we can jump in whenever we want. After that we headed to Koloa for some snacks and coffee.


 After our lomi salmon snack, we went to see some botanical gardens. So fun!
