Planning a Trip to Kauai

I’ve been busy the last few days organizing a vacation trip to Kauai for Joe and I. We can’t wait and I’m already investigating what to do, places to go and eat, where to find sea glass, and of course, the best places to snorkel:

If anyone has any suggestions with regards to things to do, places to eat or see, please leave me a comment. We will be staying on an oceanfront condo on the south side of the Island. Here is our view:


My Dad

My dad had another surgery yesterday, and currently is in ICU. This time, the surgery to fix his blocked carotid artery went well. A few month ago, he had his first side done (both were 99% blocked) and almost died post surgery. They did an emergency operation to save his life then. Anyhow, I was a basket case worrying about how this one would go. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he recovers.


I am working on the inchie project that I am organizing. I have started making special inchie holders to send back to all the participants. More later on this one……. By the way, if you are reading this and wonder what an “inchie” is, click on my tutorial icon on the right hand sidebar and you will find a free tutorial to explain things.

Enjoy your day! Carla

  1. Carla I will keep your Dad in my thoughts and prayers.
    Vacation sounds wonderful. I have been to 49 states but not Hawaii…… can’t drive there. That is my dream vacation.

  2. I’ve been thinking about you and your dad. I’m glad to hear that the surgery went well, and I hope that he’s out of ICU soon! You didn’t mention you were planning a trip to Hawaii! DANG IT! I wanna go. 😦

  3. Your dad will be in my prayers. As far as Kauai I used to live there. Its been ahile so I am not sure whats changed but you HAVE have have to go ziplining there. It is an awesome experience.

  4. Some of our favorite things:

    1. Rent a Harley and ride up to the north shore
    2. Glass Beach (My favorite. Larry and the girls will only go one time. I go often. maybe every day)
    3. Tubing in the irrigation canals
    4. Beach, beach, beach
    Poipu, poipu beach park, tunnels, kee, anini.
    5. Surf lessons from Chris at Island surfing
    6. Dinner at the steak house in Kalaheo
    7. Walking at sunset near the water
    8. Walmart to find all the stuff we forgot to bring.

    Hope daddy is doing better soon.

  5. Hi,

    Kauai is my favorite island. If you’re looking for a great restaurant, eat at the Beach House. Here’s a link:

    It is great food…a little pricey, but worth it and the view is fantastic.

    Thanks, Mike! Actually, the Beach House is right next to where we are staying. I was going to reserve 2 nights there for a sunset sitting. Thanks for your comment! Carla
