After a second plane required not one but TWO maintenance fixes, we arrived over 24 hours late but in one piece. As I have only gone to the islands in the winter, I quickly found that summer sunlight exposure is viscious. I have chronicled my sun woes in Melanin Challenged and a twenty minute swim the first day left me with a huge sunburn. I have been slinking around in the shade ever since! Thankfully we are on the north side of Kauai at the Westin Princeville, and it is often partly cloudy or scattered rainshowers.
These are miscellaneous photos of the area around our villa!
The overlook from the villa to the ocean. What a view!
Do I look relaxed yet?
Pools are nice in short bursts of activity!
Sunrise and two slightly sleepy faces. Kauai is 5 hours off our time so I am up at 6 am and in a coma by 7 pm!
Crazy gorgeous scene from across our villa! See the waterfall?
Mom, Jen and Me squinting into the sun
Hanalei Bay….beach time! The water is so shallow!
We can see this lighthouse from our villa
Kauai is quite moody with amazing cloud formations
