Next year we're having a quasi-family reunion (you know, going with that family you grew up with that you aren't actually related to by blood, but by choice) on the Big Island, but my husband and I are going to slip off to Kauai first. Want to hear the current plan?
1. Kauai for 5 days! I really want to stay here at the Grand Hyatt Kauai.
I'm more than a little obsessed with their swimming pools!
Seriously. Look at this thing! See all that meandering? Now THAT is a swimming pool.
|This will be me!|
The Na Pali Coast is where much of Jurassic Park's scenes came from.
|From Josselin's Tapas Bar - taro fields|
|Plantation Gardens Restaurant|
5. Spend 10 days on the Big Island with family, mostly in this condo at Kolea. I'm all about the lanai! Can you see the grill in the distance?
6. Do the Mauna Kea Summit tour again.

8. Go back to Big Island Candies. Be sure to have an empty suitcase to fill up!
|Caramel & Chocolate Dipped Mac Nut Shortbread|
|Coconut Brownies. DROOL.|
|Okay, we probably won't see it like that.|
