Trip Report with Photos 2/26-3/6

I made a blog for our latest trip to Kauai. This is my first blog so it’s not entirely beautiful in the formatting.

Some things for this trip and trip report-

I take a lot of photos, but I only included some here. I also didn’t take a lot of pictures of places we had been before several times. I wish I could have spent more time working on the pictures, but I tend to run out of time and then never get the trip report out.

I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease and along with having four kids, we don’t eat out a lot. This was our first trip where we actually went to restaurants and I had to be gluten free. I was very pleased with the gluten free offerings in Kauai.

It was great being on our own time and doing the exploring. This was the first time I brought no guidebooks and had no plan.

I apologize if I made spelling errors, especially on the names of places.

And, the link drops you off on the last day of my trip instead of the first.

As always, we had a fantastic time, and feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Thanks for sharing your blog and pictures with us. When we were visitors we always stayed 1 week South shore and 1 North. So your plan makes sense to us.

Great blog and pictures! Thank you for sharing. We split our stay also--just can't bring myself to stay in one area when I love both of them so much.

I really enjoyed your blog and photos! Agree with everyone of your observations and love your travel style......coffee, dessert, easy-going, rambling around.....especially on the day that your only mission was to get bbq! Going home to the real world of my treadmill is a total drag. But like you said, I always know that.......as soon as possible and hoping life doesn't get in the way.......we will be back! Your photos were awesome but I really loved the cool, blue bike. My new motto is no guidebooks and very minimal plans........it's a fun plan, isn't it? Thanks for the trip report! Deb

Thanks for sharing your blog and pictures. Glad you got to try Mediterranean Gourmet....we love that place and ate there twice last year during our 2 weeks on the north shore.

Thank you for the nice replies!

Yes, we had a fantastic trip, and I'm already wanting to go back! Coffee Junkie, I use a Canon 50D, and for this trip I only used my 28-135 lens with a polarizing filter.
