A Week in Paradise - Kauai with Friends

 I went with these 4 lovely ladies on a week's vacation to Kauai.  Tami, the one next to me has a timeshare there and was gracious enough to invite our whole ladies group to spend the week there.  Only 4 of us were able to go.  The second & third pictures were from our room, so we got to wake up to this each morning.  Tami was a great tour guide.  She took us to the north end of the island where it is typically wet but we had a great sunny day.  We also visited Waimea Canyon which is considered the Grand Canyon of Kauai.  And a catamaran trip to the part of the island that can only be seen by boat.  And of course to a couple of beaches, one of which the seals decided to come swim with us.  We had such a great time and I got to extend my summer for another week.

Thanks for stopping by.
