Our first day in Kauai: Hideaways and Hanalei

IMGP1860Last week, we went to Kauai with my family. We arrived at noon and immediately went to our favorite snorkeling spot from our honeymoon, Hideaways.  IMGP1862 It was awesome, just like we remembered it. IMGP1864 We saw lots of sea cucumbers, brightly colored coral, IMGP1867 and fun fish. IMGP1872 IMGP1874 We enjoyed a little time on the beach before going to dinner in Hanalei. IMGP1875 IMGP1876 It was almost like being back on our honeymoon five and a half years ago.  IMGP1878  IMGP1884image We went to Bar Acuda and had amazing fresh food, imageincluding our favorite Hawaiian dish, poke and this version had olive tapenade. imageimageWe ultimately thought the food was a little heavy for tropical weather, in particular the short rib on polenta but still good.

The rest of the trip we spent with my parents and sisters, my sisters’ boyfriends, my aunt and uncle. imageWe all stayed at an awesome condomium called Kapaa Sands. We had 3 oceanfront view rooms through vrbo.comimage and 2 garden view rooms through the main facility. The grounds were like a mini botanical garden!imageimageimageimageimageI’ll post more photos and memories from our Kauai family trip over Memorial Day weekend soon!
