Island of Kauai, HI

Last summer, my husband, Tom, and I vacationed on the island of Kauai, HI.  We had been there before which helped me focus more on taking photographs and less on gawking like a tourist.  The banner to this post was actually the view from our balcony at Shearwater in the town of Princeville.   Enjoy these photos because we really did enjoy our stay on The Garden Island.

Kealia Beach is located north of the town of Kapa’a on the island of Kauai.  This photo was taken from a bluff above the beach on a balmy, but windy, afternoon



It was great fun shooting photos of the beautiful sunset behind the pier at Hanalei Bay on Kauai.




Taro Fields “In the land of Hanalei” is a phrase from the song Puff the Magic Dragon.  This is the land that was its inspiration.  Visit there and you will see acres of taro, a Hawaiian food staple, growing in water-filled fields.  Add balmy trade winds and beaches everywhere and it truly is a magical place.


Nurse’s Beach, named from scenes from the movie “South Pacific”, is a great place for a swim. In fact, many film companies use the majestic mountains and beautiful beaches of Kauai as locations for their movies–King Kong, Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean just to name a few.
