We've arrived in Kauai last night to weather warnings of sever rain, flash flooding and high winds. I'm not complaining because, hey, I'm in Hawaii. Luckily this morning it seems we've been given a reprieve and it turned out to be a beautiful day. We took a walk around the resort and then drove up the coast to see what we could see.

We are staying at Pono Kai in Kappa thanks to my grandparents time share. You can see by the trees that it's very windy. The water is very rough and I took many pictures but they just didn't do it justice. Lets just say I won't be going out in that water any time soon.

On the north side of the island the water was much more hospitable. Must be the direction of the wind I guess. We are having fun in the Jeep that we rented for our time here. It's awesome riding with top off. (Jen, this is the closest thing to a beach pic your going to get with me in it!) Please excuse the picture quality, I think I had a smudge on my lens or something.

This island is crazy beautiful. They call it the Hollywood of Hawaii since there have been so many movies filmed here. Jurassic Park, Tropic Thunder and Indiana Jones just to name a few. Everything is very lush and green and there are some spectacular views. I can't wait to explore more as the week goes on.

Till next time I say again, Aloha!!

I love the beach photo with the car, like a pin up photo, only in the distance lol.

Kauai is one of my favourite places in the world. I'd recommend some favourite spots, but really I have so many there, including some really out of the way places without a soul in sight.

But I heartily recommend taking a helicopter tour, fantastic!
