Alan and I have been to Maui, Oahu, the big island of Hawaii, but my favorite so far is Kauai. Why??? You might ask. Well. . . .
A tree tunnel to the entrance of our resort. That's when I knew I was going to love it!!!
Or it could be. . . The awesome waterfalls
|This is the waterfall they used for the beginning scene of the show Fantasy Island.|
|Smith's Tropical Paradise|
|Beautiful grounds of the luau - "The Giant" mountain in the background|
hike #1 To the top of a mountain, called The Sleeping Giant.
The Scenery and Sites were Amazing - Waimea Canyon/ Kokee State Park
The plants and flowers were awesome.
Or maybe it's the new adventure of ziplining through the Kauai Jungle tree tops. . . And facing my fears of height and hanging from a little rope. . . high up in the sky, over the trees. We did a total of 9 ziplines. We stopped at a swimming hole and ate lunch and swam. There was a couple a little older than us that were service missionaries on Oahu at the Polynesian Center. They had some free time and came over to Kauai to check it out and do the zipline!! We had a really fun group of 6 couples.
|We did not plan on matching, it just happened! Go Yellow Team!! |
|The King Kong Zip Line - 1200ft|
Or taking a boat down the river to the Fern Grotto. . . lots of plants and banana trees
One thing that we found out fairly soon into our trip was that Kauai is full of Roosters. They are everywhere and they are protected by the state. The also do not know that they are suppose to crow at the crack of dawn. . nope, these roosters crow whenever they want to. . .middle of the day, or middle of the night, does not matter to these roosters. When I think of Kauai, I can't help but think about the roosters!!!
|Roosters on the side of the road, middle of the road, in parking lots, along the beach or high in the mountains. Everywhere|
BUT.....I Think the reason I loved Kauai soooo much is because. . .
We were together and having so much fun on this beautiful Island where there was so much to do. We were having one adventure after another and loving it. Other couples might like to just relax and sit by the pool or on a beach and read a book. Not us. . . It was one adventure after another. . . and we were loving it. It is such a wonderful feeling to know that after 30 years of being with someone - that you could still be excited to spend time with them, to have an adventure with them, to laugh and talk and walk together holding hands along a beach and feel so much love for that person that you are with. I think when we celebrate our 60th we might then just sit by the pool or lay on the beach and just relax but then again. . . we may be ready for more adventures. . .who knows... Happy Anniversary Alan!! I love you for eternity!!
