Hawaiian Vacation: Kauai

Earlier this month we spent eight blissful days relaxing and rejuvenating on the sands of Kauai. It was painful to come back to the real world. We had a great week, with perfect weather, good eats, lots of beach reads, a few extra freckles than when we left and probably a couple of extra pounds, too (remember the good eats!). Can we please do this every year?

 We stayed in Kapa’a on the East Shore of Kauai. It was a funky beach town and the perfect spot for us (very centrally located on the island and the town is very walkable). We rented a condo in a resort so we got to take advantage of the full kitchen plus all the amenities on the resort (right on the beach, great pool, bbqs, restaurant with a great bar and an even better happy hour) — Waipouli Beach Resort. Totally recommend! We’d stay there again in a heartbeat. The views from our lanai were killer.
