In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way!). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday Luau Edition
One of the most lush and densely forested places we visited was the Fern Grotto. The only way to access it (at least for tourists, but perhaps also workers) was by boat. It is located in the the Wailua State Park, about 2 miles inland up the Wailua River (the only navigable river in Hawaii). … Continue reading Fern Grotto
As previously mentioned, our last day we decided to put some miles on the rental car and see where the open road would take us. Not this open road. But the one that follows this map (courtesy of Lonely Planet!): We started in Poipu (southern most tip)–as that’s where we stayed. We drove to Lihue … Continue reading Around-ish The Island

Despite my first two ill fated attempts at snorkeling, I was willing to try again. I figured if there was anywhere in the world where I might have a good snorkeling experience, it was Hawaii. Just FYI: if you’re searching for snorkeling in Hawaii, there are a plethora of options. We chose one that included more … Continue reading Third Time’s A Charm!
…just don’t feed the nēnēs! Yeah, I know it’s corny–but I have approximately 12 minutes to post something, I’m not even home yet, and my brain is a bit fried. Plus, every time I see this sign that song gets stuck in my head…. But since I’m also feeling the need to be educational: the … Continue reading Watch Me Whip…
It wouldn’t be a Hawaiian vacation if you didn’t spend at least a little time at the beach. We debated about when/where we wanted our beach day to be (aside from our quick trips to the Black and Green sand beaches). Ultimately, we decided that it might be a nice break towards the end of … Continue reading Shipwreck…
In addition to tubing, another thing you must do in Kauai is go to Uncle’s Shave Ice and get, well, shave ice! Cool and refreshing shave ice is something that is a must-do when you’re in Hawaii (regardless of which island you visit!) and Uncle’s definitely offered up some tasty flavors. Okay, yes, it looks … Continue reading Uncle’s!
The most fun we had (in my humble opinion) on any excursion during our entire trip was visiting the Lihue Plantation, an old sugar plantation on Kauai. I know you’re thinking: what is so fun about visiting an old sugar plantation unless it is now a rum factory? Alas no rum–what we did was float … Continue reading A Sugary Float
I don’t know about you, but it has been one of those weeks and I am so very glad the weekend is here! I’m looking forward to doing a whole lotta nothing and adding in a few trips down to the pool. Naturally at 4 minutes to midnight, I remembered that I didn’t actually schedule … Continue reading A Hawaiian T.G.I.F.
