Happy new year! May your year bring great peace and joy, and of course, good health!
I haven’t posted in ages, and it’s not as though I haven’t been cooking and eating (a lot of both, actually). My sister and her family came to stay for the holidays, and while we cooked up a storm nearly every evening, I just couldn’t manage to photograph and/or write up anything. I’m sure you know how it is having people in your home and at your table every meal.
Then immediately after they departed, I went with my own little family to the gorgeous, still remarkably undeveloped island of Kauai. I hadn’t been since I was a child, and I was thrilled to see so much wild, virtually untouched land and incredible beauty. Since I love travel at least as much as I love food and cooking, I’d like to share these photos. I promise to post some yummy recipes very soon.
We spent the first three nights on the north shore near Hanalei Bay. Rain showers made our beach photos a little dark and grayish but those same showers keep the north shore incredibly lush and green.
We visited many beaches, swam with two giant sea turtles (remind me to ask for a Go-Pro for my birthday this year), took shelter from the rain in the deepest cave I’ve ever seen and hiked a mildly treacherous path high up along the Na Pali coast. More of the south shore in my next post…
