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.
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.
