Homage to Beautiful Kauai

Homage to Beautiful Kauai

I’ve added a new page that pays homage to the beautiful island of Kauai, where I was raised and think is the most beautiful of all the Hawaiian Islands.  I am of course biased having grown up there and I just wanted to share a post about my home island because I think Kauai is what most people around the world still envision when they think of Hawaii.


I promise to update the gallery on the Beautiful Kauai page with more photos as I collect more from my parents and when I get back there myself to visit, which is not nearly often enough!
