Kauai, Hawaii 5/2/09 - 5/9/09 - Back in February of this year, I was planning a warm weather vacation to thaw out. The trip was to begin shortly after the date I was nearly flattened by a truck in Mississippi. Although delayed three months, I was physically healed enough to recently take the trip. This past week, I spent a week on the island of Kauai with my friend Debbie. It was a really great week - “they don’t come any better!” This trip was my, post - “Almost Road Pizza” sanity check. Following is a brief journal of the trip.
5/2/09 - We spent most of the day traveling from Indianapolis to Kauai. This island is one of the real jewels of the tropics. But, like all of the best places, it can take a while to get there. After picking up six time zones, we finally arrived at about 5 pm local time, picked up our car and checked into a beach front condo at the Wapouli Beach Resort in Kapa’a, Kauai. The remainder of the day was grabbing some groceries, supper and downing a couple of margaritas.
