Celebrating a special birthday

Going to try and keep this within the "rules" but I think spending the big 5-0 on Kauai is special. What could be better than Hawaii 5-0! Go to a luau, have dinner overlooking the ocean, walk along the beach. It is something you will remember for the rest of your life. They even have hats that say Hawaii 5-0.

So with that...happy birthday, coalminer.

I hope others will think about celebrating a special birthday on the Garden Island.

Ah jebett - a Big mahalo for those wishes. I just got on the computer for the first time and was just going to make a post. So I will make it a quick report and also keep in the guidelines.

Today was Holo holo charters up the Napali coast - today started with rain AND a beautiful rainbow around 6am. It did clear up for our trip down the coast and it was spectacular. We were able to snorkel for about an hour and yes, those turkey sandwiches were good! The trip home was a bit different - it was definitely rougher, so a few passengers weren't so happy, but I had great fun. It was raining, and we all got pretty wet. When we were almost to Ke'e beach, we saw spinner dolphins - woo hoo! I was so hoping for dolphins, so it was a perfect trip for me and the 3 friends of mine that came with.

Tonight is dinner at Hukilau Lanai, as often recommended here on the forum - will be my first time there. I'll let you know how it was.

We are staying in a beautiful house in Kilauea and everything is going great. I will post a trip report when I return home. Mahalo! :)

Happy Birthday Coalminer! Have a wonderful time on Kauai. I, too, celebrated my 50th last year on Kauai. What a wonderful memory. Aloha to you!
