It’s already been two weeks since we returned from the Hawaiian island of Kauai, also known as the Garden Isle. I know it’s been a rough winter for many of you, and I thought you might enjoy a few minutes in paradise. Kauai is the oldest and lushest of the Hawaiian Island chain and it’s a perfect place for a winter getaway.
We had all kinds of weather while we were there, but the air and water temperature remained between 75 and 80 degrees for the most part. As you probably noticed, there are a lot of chickens on Kauai. During the last two hurricanes domestic chickens were displaced and quickly adapted to fending for themselves. They are now considered the Kauai state bird.
The house we rented was wonderful. It was in a very quiet area, on the ocean, and directly across from the botanical gardens. This was truly a wonderful way to break up the winter and our normal routine. Oddly enough, many islanders like to vacation in an area where they can snow ski. Just goes to show, variety is truly the spice of life.
We love the Garden Island of Kauai
If you are looking for a vacation spot that is peaceful and laid back, but still has all the amenities, I recommend Kauai. There is an incredible amount of diversity on this island and the people really do have the aloha spirit. We have been Kauai several time and we are always excited to return when there’s an opportunity.
Every part of Kauai has something unique to offer and we love it all. I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of our favorite vacation spot. Please feel free to share your impressions or questions Kauai. Also, if you have a favorite retreat, we would love to hear about it.
