Ah, yes, memories of paradise recently visited.
At least the temperature here is no longer sub-zero. Still, I’d MUCH rather be back in Hawaii.
Hawaii at Last (June 14, 2007)
Gate 60 (Sunday, January 06)
Our flight from Honolulu to Kauai leaves from Gate 60.
This is the last gate in this part of the airport and, while not open to the air, it has huge windows on three sides that provide a glimpse of spiky green mountains on one side and a low dark rise on the other. Mostly I see palm trees and dark blue sky.
I think I’m going to like it here.
Sunrise From Our Beach (Thursday, January 10 – Kauai)
Puff the Magic Dragon Lived by the Sea
Na Pali from Ground Level
The Gardens of Bali Ha’i
Tropical Beauty Enough for Everyone (Friday, January 11- Hawaii)
Sunset from our Window
Our B & B is located at the very southernmost end of the island and it takes longer to get there than I am anticipating. (Distances here on the Big Island are deceptively long compared to those of compact little Kauai.) It is an interesting drive, but it is a relief to pull into the sweeping yard that leads up to Kalaekilohana.
Even in near darkness, it is easy to realize that we have landed at a very special place.
As we watch the sun sink beneath the trees, I already wish we were staying here a lot longer.
Along the Kona Coast (Sunday, January 13 – Hawaii)
The Road to Hana (Monday, January 14 – Maui)
View From Our Yard – Evening in Hana
A Quiet Day at the Pipe (Friday, January 18 – Oahu)
Rainbows Over Waikiki (Monday, January 21 – Oahu)
In search of a relaxing spot from which to watch the sun set, we end up with drinks and pupu at a open-air Tiki bar with a view of the beach.
I wish we weren’t going home now.
