Day 1: The Garden Isle

Aloha! Man it's good to be home and have our pups back, we missed them! And welcome to December (already)! Enough with the chit-chat let me tell you about our wonderful trip to Kauai, the garden isle.

On our first day there we landed at about 5:45pm, got our bags and rental car and then headed to the hotel. After we got settled into the Sheraton Kauai we were able to walk to Bubba's Burgers at Kukui'ula Village Shopping Center. I really liked being able to walk to where we wanted to eat (something we couldn’t do on the Big Island). After our yummy Kauai beef burgers we walked back to the hotel and cleaned up and went to bed after our long day of travel.

 The next day we started the morning with a walk on the Sheraton's section of Poipu beach and saw our first honu (sea turtle) swimming really close to the beach and got some pretty cool pictures! Then we headed to Snorkel Bob's to rent our snorkel gear for the week (2 rentals and 1 body board was $100). And after that we walked around Koloa Town and had some shave ice at 9:30 in the morning! :) Yum!

 After Koloa we headed back to the hotel for a culture class. Unfortunately, with the Thanksgiving crowd, the lei making was all… but the hula lessons were open. They were supposed to start at 11:30 but things were not even close to starting at 11:45! I told them I had someplace to be and could we get it started and we did one dance. It was fun but not something I would go out of my way for. After hula we headed to the Poipu Shopping Village for some Puka Dogs! A must for a quick bite! They were so good but their garlic lemon secret sauce, which they say is spicy, is not spicy at all.

After lunch we headed to Port Allen for our 1:45pm check in for our sunset sail on the Southern Star Catamaran. What a wonderful night; we had Capt. Cory and he was very entertaining. I don’t think we could have asked for a better trip, the ocean was like glass. We saw a few spinner dolphins as we watched the sun go down. The food they prepared for us was amazing and the steak was cooked just the way I like it! What a nice way to finish up our first full day in Kauai.
