So, here is our trip in a few snaps. We stayed at the Sheraton Kauai Resort in Poipu beach and had the amazing sunset view from our ocean side patio. One morning while exercising I even saw a breaching humpback whale! We rode bikes in Waimea Canyon – both a mountain bike ride on one of the trails to a scenic lookout, and a road ride up the canyon which was an amazing 20 mile, 3,500+ foot climb to the look out – and then the 20 miles back to the car! We took a couple of paddle board lessons – once on the calm water of scenic Hanalei Bay and once in some bigger waves in Kalapaki beach where my husband actually surfed (way to go!) while I was pleased to just find my balance and remain upright in some legit waves. I really enjoyed paddle boarding and hope I have the chance to do it again sometime.
It was a great trip. We relaxed, enjoyed gorgeous views, had a few adventures, read books, sipped a few cocktails and had a great time.
