In the last post, I said something about not having to go to Europe or a tropical paradise for a wonderful family time. I still stand by my statement. Yet. I will go to any of the Hawaiian islands in a heartbeat! My family seem to go there every eight years or so. Last time was two winters ago. We spent a fabulous week in Kauai, the Garden Island. I saw ripe mangoes, bananas, grapefruits, etc. hanging in the trees everywhere in February!
On the way to some place, we caught a glimpse of a lovely beach. We pulled over and scrambled down to the beach. We stood along a narrow strip of a secluded sandy beach. The view was breathtaking. It was a perfect spot to spread out a picnic basket and loll on the beach. We took some pictures and climbed back up to the car with a happy feeling that one gets after a spontaneous adventure.
