Kauai

In 1985 I visited Kauai for five days and fell in love with it's beauty. When I returned on this cruise I felt exactly the same. Hubby said it was indeed the most beautiful island. We have plans to return at some point and spend a month during the winter, that way we can explore every aspect of this gorgeous island.

Hubby taking a picture of the two of us before we went to dinner the second time at the steakhouse with the Judge and Paula. See that beautiful necklace? Empress Bee of muffin53 made that and it's even prettier in person. If you want to order something pretty from Miss Bee go HERE. Thank you Miss Bee, I got lots of compliments on this piece.
I'm going to end our Hawaii posts with my beloved towel animals. Our suite was pretty full by the end of our cruise. I told all of them goodbye and also warned them that the room stewards were going to take them away, but that they would remake them for other guests to enjoy. Thanks for coming along on our cruise. I hope you enjoyed it half as much as we did.

The last two towel pieces I intentionally saved for the last piece of this post. The caterpillar was made by Miss Novi (room steward) the first night on board, and the heart the last sea day. We gave her our tip for taking such good care of us for two weeks and when we returned to our suite to pack she had made this heart. It made both of us smile.

  1. My former web site guru Walt went to Kauai about 15 years ago to visit a friend who had moved there. Upon arriving back home, he and his wife sat dow, discussed it briefly, decided to quit their jobs, sell everything, and go live in Paradise for the rest of their lives.

    And so they did.

    Are you sure a month is going to be enough?

    Will you have a guest room?

    Just wondering.

    :)

    Big hugs honey xoxo

  7. Can I just say that the photo of you two is just adorable times ten! I just LOOOOVE it! You are quite the good-looking couple!

    I bet if I saw Kauai, I'd be bawling my eyes out from the beauty. The photos make it look simply gorgeous!

    And the necklace Bee made was just beautiful. It's perfect.

  8. Haven't been to Kauai, Sandee. Thank you for showing and telling about it. It is supposed to be the MOST unspoiled tourist island, right?

    I loved your animals. Too bad you had to leave them. The catipillar is gorgeous! I would sneak him into my suitcase along with ... (can't say here). :)

    Bee makes really pretty jewelery doesn't she. I like that necklace. It looks good on you.

  11. Kauai is definitely on my bucket list .. I hear it's better than Oahu or Maui, and they were gorgeous! Great way to end the post, with a sweet towel heart .. those towels also make me think of Disney World for some reason ...

  12. I would love a winter month there; and that beautiful necklace! Very special, all the way around. I felt like I was back in our own room onboard the Dream. Sigh. I'll be ready for another cruise...pity that we don't have one lined up:(

    Enjoying our kiddos final day here. Warm hugs from windy WPB, honey...

  17. Gorgeous pictures. I am so jealous. I've never been to Kauai. Years ago, I went to Maui and Oahu. Kauai's landscape has it all, mountains, beach, green lush fields. Simply beautiful.
