Hawaii: Day 8

For our last day we headed up to Waimea Canyon.  Ava enjoyed chasing the chickens. The canyon was beautiful, but also really cold.  I did not appreciate how cold it would be up there because the rest of Hawaii was so warm.  Ava was displeased. We did some driving in the canyons and stopped at […]

Hawaii: Day 7

Day 7 We went back to Poipu Beach and ate poke on the beach.  All the chickens swarmed because we brought out food. Ava was getting mad at the chickens and she wasn’t really interested in swimming. We went back home to get Ava in a better mood.  After a few hours of relaxing, we […]

Hawaii Day 6

In the morning we headed back to Crazy Beach.  The waves were so intense that we only stood in the water up to our ankles and it still knocked us down. A lifeguard actually came out and told us not to go in the water.  None of that stopped the surfers, though, who looked like […]

Hawaii Days 4 and 5

Day 4 We went back to Poipu Beach.  Ava was in a stage where instead of being nice to the birds she just yelled at them.  We had been talking about how one of the sparrows was dirty and I think she took it to heart and decided that all the birds on the beach […]

Hawaii Day 3

Day 3 We woke up and watched the birds rise with the sunrise around 6:50.  I try to burn images like this to my brain: This year Jon bought us specialized snorkel equipment that was amazing.  Poipu Beach is one of the best places for snorkelling so we tried it out there.  Ava was excited […]

Ava and Hawaii Beaches

Kauai has a lot of beaches and Ava loves them all.  She categorized the waves as baby waves, mommy waves, and daddy waves.  Ava was a huge fan of the daddy waves.  She also repeatedly asked to go into the deep water. Ava loved the feeling of the strong waves that would explode over the […]

Hawaii

In the year since we went to Hawaii, my brain made parts of Kauai into my happy place.  I would be writing a patent application and a picture of the trees on this one road would appear in my mind.  You feel like you’re driving through a jungle because the trees on each side of […]

In Hawaii there was a little cove near the house we rented that is a known spot for seeing turtles.  The turtles were fairly shy, but there were two Black-crowned Night Herons that gave lovely displays.  Here is the adult: The juvenile was even closer to us.  I find it interesting that the juvenile has […]

Waimea Canyon State Park

Moving to the West Coast after growing up in New England was a culture shock.  But it was also strange because the landscape was so different.  The hills are dry and yellow and not at all like the lush green beauty of New England. Visiting the Waimea Canyon State Park in Hawaii was nice because […]
