Biking the Kapaa Ocean Trail

So, on Tuesday, Bob got the GREAT idea to rent bikes and go for a bike ride along the coast in Kapaa. (Great idea Bob!)

We rented single bikes and one tandem bike that Chris and Shari hogged most of the time.

Bob enjoyed scaring us in this picture...

A sign we saw along the way...

After all that biking, a shaved ice at "Ono Shaved Ice" really hits the spot!

Macadamia nut ice cream inside! Yummy!

The Marriott Kauai Beach Club - Lihue, Kauai

This is a great hotel. I went for a morning walk today with Shari and took my camera to take photos of all the beautiful things we saw along the way.

These are inside the actual hotel lobby grounds:

These were taken along our walk...

This is the view from our room:

Aaaah the life!

We love Kauai! It is so beautiful! On Sunday we went to church...then sat by the pool of our hotel (it was such a warm, sunny day).
In the evening Chris and Shari arrived -

We went to dinner at their favorite place to eat...Kauai Pasta.

Monday...the boys golfed Poipu in the rain in the morning. Yuck!
We girls all got 90 minute massages in the afternoon. Yea!
While we were getting our massages, the boys went back out to golf...this time in the beautiful sunshine and at our hotel and at discount rates...can't beat that!!

Zip n Dip

Still waiting for the Cralls to arrive...we drove to the other side of the island today to Princeville for a zip n dip tour (a total BLAST!).

It consisted of 9 zip lines, lunch, and a secret waterhole which only John went swimming in.

There was also a rickety wooden bridge we had to cross. For some of us that was not very fun!!

Here are some self portraits I took and Bob took....

At the very end, the 9th zip was "King Kong" at 1200 feet long.
King kong is a tandem zip ... Very fun!

John and Julie were the first to go. And they didn't make it all the way to the ramp ... To grab hold of the brake rope. So, they backed up about 400 feet back up onto the zip and had to get rescued.....so sad....

This is me and Bob right before we took off on King Kong... We didn't want the same thing to happen to us! And it didn't! We made it all the way!!

Kauai -1st day

Kayak Adventure

This year we are with John and Julie Gleason in Kauai. The Cralls will arrive soon. In the mean time we are not sitting around twiddling our thumbs. As you know we maximize our vacations!

We used the company Kayak Adventure to kayak up the Wailua river then we hiked up to a waterfall and had lunch.

The hike was very muddy as you can see.

On the way back we found a tree
swing and everyone in the group swang from the tree and into the water! It was a blast!
