Me and my friends Hayley, Amanda and Jeff all headed for Kauai on Aug. 18, 2006. Hayley parent's gave us their Marriot time share for the week. All in all the week was a blast despite a rough start when we found out Jeff's brother had passed away a couple days before we left. Jeff still came with us and made it back for the burial.
But on with Hawaii! The Marriot was under construction but was still a lovely place to stay. Here is a picture of the construction and the view from our room and a shot of the tower we stayed in.
It was all very lovely of course. I had been to Maui before with my parents and that island is great too, but Kauai is so beautiful and green everywhere you go. Most days were spent with Lava Flows and good reading by the pool. I also took the time to have a beachside massage for an hour and a half. It was phenomenal!!!
If you can tell from the picture, my hair was really curly the whole trip! I felt like Monica on "Friends" It just kept getting bigger and bigger because of the humidity but I learned to love the humid air by the end and miss it here in Denver.
We also went up the NaPali coast which is gorgeous. Several movies have been filmed on these beaches and you can only access them by boat. Here is a picture of Amanda, Hayley and I in a cave on the NaPali coast.
And not to leave out Jeff, here is the picture we got of him trying not to get his board shorts wet for whatever reason. Kind of girly if you ask me!
