Tom and I spent Christmas in the UK. I fully intended to write every day while we were away but most of the time I was driving and the rest of the time we spent with family. We took a week long road trip while we were there and Tom saw some parts of England […]

As mentioned in previous posts, we ate breakfast at three places in Hanalei. Instead of doing a separate post for each, we’ve put them altogether in this one post. Hanalei Coffee Roasters Our first breakfast in Hanalei was at the Hanalei Coffee Roasters. This was our second visit to the shop. When we first discovered […]

This was our last full day on Kauai and our last chance to do any snorkeling. We had breakfast in Hanalei (our next post will be about the three breakfasts we had in Hanalei) and then headed back to Kayak Kauai to book the snorkeling gear. I had geared myself to go snorkeling as well, even though […]

As yesterday’s trip involved a lot of driving, we decided to stay close to base today. We couldn’t decide whether to go kayaking or snorkeling. During breakfast we discussed our options and in the end plumped to go snorkeling. We drove into Hanalei to find some place where they rented snorkeling equipment. Before we left though, I decided to try the […]

So much for getting up early and setting out before the rush hour to drive to Waimea Canyon! We revised our plans and left after 9 to avoid getting stuck in traffic. Instead of getting breakfast somewhere en route, we went into Hanalei to find something. I had read a review of the Wake Up […]

The weather did not look too good today so decided not to go snorkeling. There was still an advisory out on the high surf though but Anini Beach is considered pretty safe. (Click on the photos for larger versions) We headed first into Hanalei in search of breakfast and went to the Hanalei Coffee Roasters (we’ll talk […]

Today we decided to drive to the south of Kauai to see if we could find somewhere to snorkel. We went totally prepared with our bathing suits and towels. Before setting off we feasted on fresh papaya, apples and yoghurt. The sun was rising as we left which caused problems for us. As we drove […]

This is the first day of our vacation on Kauai, the northernmost of the Hawaiian Islands. We arrived yesterday and drove to the Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Village on the northern coast in the pouring rain. Today, though, has been nice and sunny. We set out early for our first day of adventure to drive […]

We are back on the road again after a long absence. This Summer has been interesting with visitors, vacations and other obligations. It is good to be on our travels once again. It was a Sunday and we were on our way home from Fresno to San Jose via Turlock. Why did we want to […]

This is our last day in Fort Bragg.  Several family members were driving home today and left early in the morning so we bid them farewell. A large proportion of the wedding party remained and were going on the Skunk Train. We did think about joining them but when we looked into it we changed […]
