It seems like just yesterday, I was posting photos of our favorite island Kauai. It is hard to believe it was four months ago; so much has taken place in those four months. Firstly, when we got back at the beginning of May started unpacking at our new home. It takes months to really settle in; by the time we were comfortable, our daughter's move was right around the corner. She's been in her new house now for a month. I'm pleased to say we love our new home and I think Kim's family is settling in quite well. They've had some great learning experiences-an owl or two hanging out in their area and also a resident bat that they have been able to observe. You will be seeing photos of Kauai all week. The first two are the sunrise on our first morning. I joined hubby, but he wakes up earlier than I do, so was able to get early morning photos.
These two Monk Seals were playing at a beach we had never been to before. We started out our morning pretty early, for folks who don't have a time clock to watch and although we couldn't get really close for photos, it was fun to watch them play. The volunteer told us that two were born back in May.
This is the day I had a bit of a over-heating incident. This photo was taken before I started feeling weak. When we left for the day, I thought we were just driving up to a beach and didn't prepare properly for the hike and boulder hopping we did. You can see the boulders we had to climb over. It didn't help that we were both in flip-flops either. WE did have lots of water, but I had totally forgotten to have something like Gatoraid with us. It was so hot and humid and I didn't even think about losing minerals as I was sweating.
Nene's, the official Hawaiian bird.
So this was our first day in Kapaa. Love it there but still love being home; otherwise hubby would probably move us there.
I hope you had a great weekend, I've got to go meet Kam to walk the pups, so best end this.
A Hui Hou to you friend, or "until we meet again".
