Each year Rachel and I take turns going to Hawaii. We didn't plan it that way, it was already like that before we met. My in-laws take the whole family every other year to Kauai. Rachel and her family go every other year as well to Kauai but we go on opposite years. We stay on different parts of the island. We stay in the main town of Lihue while her family stays about 20 minutes away in po'pui. Kauai is a fabulous island and one of the least developed of the Hawaiian islands. Each year we trade thoughts on new restaurants to try (our two favorites are Tidepools at the Hilton hotel and Roy's.) We compare excursions (they like snorkeling and boat rides, we like kayaking and tubing down the sugar plantation's waterways.) As a souvenir, we always bring the other person some Hawaiian coffee.

Well, this year is Rachel's turn to be in Kauai. She is there now hopefully enjoying the beach and relaxing. I can't wait to hear about her trip and I am sure neither can you.
Here's to Kauai and may everyone get their turn there.
