In love with Kauai


sc0071790d[1]My husband and I visit Kauai at least twice a year, to us its the most beautiful place on earth.  For many reasons we love Kauai, but the biggest reason is that we were married on the island of Kauai in 2003.
 
Some of our favorite areas include Hanalei beach, Na Pali Coast, Waimea Canyon and Kalalau Valley.
 

sc0055da932[1]Princeville Golf Course – Makai is our favorite golf course on the island. Although I am just a vacation golfer, my husband actually gets quite a workout playing the Princeville golf courses. We will play best ball and usually get two other vacationers to join us on the “Makai” course. I learned early on in our  marriage to always say “yes” to golf  with the hubby.

Lydgate Beach Park
Typically calm and clear, Lydgate Beach pools are a favorite for young swimmers and beginning snorkelers. Shade trees and grassy areas also make for an ideal picnic spot. Take Highway 56 south toward Kapaa for 22 miles. Just past the Wailua Bridge turn left toward the Aloha Beach Resort and continue on toward Lydgate Beach Park.
