Winter Holiday in Kauai

16 January 2012 · No Comments

No doubt it has been a long while since I have blogged, but I have decided to start up again as one of my New Year’s resolutions.

Last year was the first year that I had not taken a winter holiday in a long time – or at least been somewhere new and different, if not warm and sunny. Last winter ended up being pretty long and hard, so I decided at that time that I needed to ensure that I go somewhere to recharge my batteries with sun and warmth. The warmth and sun I chose was Kauai! Definitely warm and definitely sunny! Very relaxing and needed.

There were some definite highlights. Snorkling with a sea turtle (wish I had an underwater camera), seeing a number of humpback whales, a 5-month old monk seal, some nice day hikes, and camping on the beach. I’m already starting to look forward to the next winter holiday (especially now that it has been so cold this past weekend).
