Hellooooo to those of you who made it through all the photos! I realize that this is an obscene amount of images, but I just couldn't edit out anymore. Feel lucky that you're only getting twenty or so. (Stay tuned for parts two and three?)
The island of Kauai was our first stop in Hawaii. We spent most of our time driving around the coast and stopping at beaches to swim and be. This is where I fell in love with green cliffs (Na Pali Coast!), blue blue water, goldy sunsets, snorkeling (snorkeling!), and island food (pineapple juice, pineapple creme brulee, shave ice, BBQ, etc.) I did not, however, fall in love with the wild chickens. Wild chickens? I know.
But it's paradise, really--small, and rural, and lussshhh.
