Raise Your Hand If You’re Tired of Kauai Photos

I’ve received a few emails requesting photos of the house we stayed in while in Kauai.

The above photo is a picture of the living room.

It’s (so far) the only “house” photo I’ve translated from RAW to JPEG.  I’ll try to get a few more done for you soon.

I’ve also had people ask to see “lots more” Hawaii photos.

I’m still getting re-situated in Orange County and I haven’t even looked at all my photos yet.

I’ve been tackling laundry, pain doctor appointments, un-sun-bleaching my hair and other important-ish tasks.

(I also had to have a new pane of glass installed in a window because we had to break into our own house when we got home.)

I’m also trying to get school shopping done for two of my kids.

In other words,

I’ll be more organized and in more of a regular routine next week.

I hope.

Someone asked me if our trip to Kauai was the “perfect” vacation.

No, it was not.

I really don’t believe there IS such a thing.

I love Hawaii, and I love Kauai.

I don’t miss tropical humidity or mosquitoes though.

(And yes, I’m a humidity WUS … but can you blame me?  I’ve spent my entire life in a very dry climate.)

I also don’t miss gecko lizards startling me on a regular basis.

Geckos are cute.

My son used to have one for a pet.

I’m not afraid of them.


When you aren’t expecting a lizard to run across your kitchen counter, it might make you jump and gasp out loud.

By the way, geckos eat mosquitoes.

Geckos are considered good luck in Hawaii.

So is rain.

So are rainbows.

Basically, everything in Hawaii brings good luck.

I DO miss having the ocean out every window.

I DO miss falling asleep to the sound of waves.

I DO miss the beautiful cloud formations which are ever-changing in the tropical sky.

And the beautiful stars at night.

And Happy Hour in “our” backyard.

I also miss “the view” driving about town.

(Yes, I clicked a lot of photos from the car, through the windshield.  Briefcase is very accustomed to the sound of a shutter as he drives!)

More than anything, I miss being surrounded by so much beauty.

Kauai has quite an abundance of tropical beauty.

    Gorgeous photos. Please continue to share. 🙂 Geckos and counters = gasping, I agree! They are cute though.

    I had a incident recently where I was locked out of my house after picking my car up at the shop. I had to wait until a family member returned home so I could get in. I tried to figure out how to break into my house and found it was pretty secure. Thanks for not following me home like agreed, family! grr…

    I was trying to figure out what window I would like to replace so I could break in but avoid getting arrested. I had it all planned out if I needed to. (really you can’t answer your cell phone, why do you have it?!)
    Finally, the family gets home and one particular family member says to me…why wouldn’t you call a locksmith, after all…it was the middle of the day?

    Should have heard the crickets in my head! Locksmith? I forgot they exist! Never used one, but I have my ninja burglary skills all planned out… Horrible feeling to be locked out! I can’t imagine coming home from vacation to that situation.

    Take a bit of time, settle in and then share, share, share! (please) 🙂

    All right, that does it. Beloved says we need to plan a vacation in February – that’s when I start to go bugshit crazy from winter – and I’m going to do my best to talk him into Hawaii. He has enough frequent flier miles with Delta that we could both go first class free of charge and, by golly, if we have to use all of his Holiday Inn points while we’re there in the process, I’m okay with that, too.

    Ah, I got lucky when we got back from our vacation. My teenager was the only person to have a house key!
    The house looks beautiful and if geckos were the worst of it, awesome 🙂

    Gotta gripe though, web designers not doing so good on mobile side. When you have time please flog them for me. The type is incredibly small and scrolls of the screen. One more thing, right?!! But I get on the computer to look at your beautiful pictures, so no worries there. I just get on the phone first thing in the morning because your posts usually either crack me up or make me smile. Great way to start a day! But no pressure 🙂

    Being I’ve never been there I’m thoroughly enjoying your Hawaii shots. Have a good recovery week.
