Kauai Snapshots

Here are some Kauai trip pictures for you to enjoy.  First stop- Glass Beach:

A Close up of the beach:

The view from the condo lanai we rented at Kuhio Shore at sunset.  We picked this place due to the closeness to the water:

We stumbled upon a rare monk seal during a morning walk on Ke’e Beach:

After this treat, we snorkeled at Tunnel’s Beach, then decided to check out surf conditions at Queen Emma’s Bath:

As you can see, the surf was too high this day to go into Queen’s Bath.  2 weeks ago in this exact location, 2 women were swept off the rocks to their death.

On the hike back up the cliffs, we stopped to snap this beautiful waterfall:

Another favorite snorkeling spot was in front of the Beach House, which was next to where we were staying:

We ate at a variety of places, including a delightful lunch at Scotty’s Beachside Barbeque on the Coconut Coast where we enjoyed their delightful mai-tais:

Check out our view during lunch:

Notice the hammock above??  It called to me, so here is a slightly different perspective of those coconut palms:

I leave you with a lovely sunset shot from the east shore of the island:

Hope you enjoyed some of my pictures from our trip.  I will share more, including some of the wonderful items brought home.   Aloha from Carla
