Greetings to you from Kauai! Yesterday was another full day and this morning has been rather slow, due to a poor nights sleep. One of the treats we discoverd nine and a half years ago was Shave Ice. Not Shaved Ice, but Shave Ice. It is similar to a snow cone but as you can see below, is huge. What is incredible is that they put ice cream in the middle of the ice and the many flavors you can get. This particular one was called Kauai Sunrise-with passion fruit, mango, pineapple and coconut syrups. So I know that this is not a healthy food, but when you vacation sometimes you need some treats. I had hoped to really do a lot of walking daily and be careful what we ate, but I'm sure I'll get home and have gained five pounds. Watch out though, once we are in our new home, I'll be biking daily(I hope).
The Monk Seal below is the seal we saw with her pup two years ago. It was great to see her again.  There is speculation as to whether or not she is pregnant. 

One of the beaches at Kapaa; our time is flying by so quickly and I am feeling the need to slow things down and just relax at the beach-in preparation for the move when we get home.
I hope you had a  wonderful weekend!
Joy to you~
Noreen, who is really missing my Hunter.


  1. Wow that is one big cone. We don't have those over here. We say go spoil yourself as it will all get worked off once you are back home. Enjoy your time and take it easy. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Hi Noreen,
    Looks like yall are having a great time, that shave ice looks yummo.
    Love all your pics, such nice reminders of our time there too.
    We never saw any shave ice tho....
    Aren't the flowers there just so
    spectacular, and so unique and the arrangements they usually have in the hotel lobby's and stuff. Gorgeous.
    Did you ever take a lai making class, they were offered but we
    never did it...........would rather be exploring.......
    HOpe the last days drag by for you and you get some rest for your move.
    Blessings, Nellie

  6. I've never had shave ice before, but will add it to my list of things I'll need to try! I'm glad you're enjoying the pace of your trip, and I hope all is well at home while you're away--I'm very sure Hunter misses you too! :-)
