I’ve had Hawaii on my mind lately.
Maybe it’s my brain’s way of escaping holiday stress. (Or this horrible pain flare-up?)
When I was visiting Maui last summer, I made a decision to return to Hawaii within a year to photograph the island of Kauai.
For those of you who haven’t had an opportunity to visit Hawaii, Kauai is (to me) the most picturesque of the islands. It also gets the most rain … so there’s a drawback.
One family I know saved vacation money for years to visit Kauai, only to have it pour all day, every day, during their visit. (They visited during the month of December, but even for December that much rain is unusual.)
I’ve been visiting Kauai-related websites recently.
I’m making mental lists of what areas I want to photograph, what costs I’d incur, and whether or not I could hire a hawt local to haul my photography gear around for me.
Exploring Kauai involves a lot of hiking. Hiking, with heavy photography gear and a useless arm, would cause problems for me.
(Of course, traveling around Kauai with a hawt photo assistant might cause problems for me too.)
I’ve been to Kauai before, but it’s been quite awhile.
I should be making lists of all the holiday related tasks I’m hopelessly behind on.
Instead, I’m sitting on my couch, in a pain med induced mental fog,
Dreaming of photographing another Hawaii sunset like this one:
Have you ever visited Kauai?
If so, I’d love to hear your tips and suggestions!
