Last week, we went to Kauai with my family. We arrived at noon and immediately went to our favorite snorkeling spot from our honeymoon, Hideaways. It was awesome, just like we remembered it. We saw lots of sea cucumbers, brightly colored coral, and fun fish. We enjoyed a little time on the beach before going to dinner in Hanalei. It was almost like being back on our honeymoon five and a half years ago. We went to Bar Acuda and had amazing fresh food, including our favorite Hawaiian dish, poke and this version had olive tapenade. We 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. We all stayed at an awesome condomium called Kapaa Sands. We had 3 oceanfront view rooms through vrbo.com and 2 garden view rooms through the main facility. The grounds were like a mini botanical garden!I’ll post more photos and memories from our Kauai family trip over Memorial Day weekend soon!
