In May 2006 we took a family vacation to the island of Kauai in Hawaii.

We stayed at Waimea Plantation Cottages. This was our home for 11 nights:

We relaxed out on the Lanai and around the property:

The property has lots of natural beauty:

Of course, we spent lots of time at the beach:

We drove around Waimea Canyon, which Mark Twain called the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific":

We took part in a "traditional" Luau:

Cathy and Andy took a helicopter tour around the island with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters:

We drove up to the north side of the island to see Hanalei Bay,
where Puff the Magic Dragon lives by the sea:

And visited many of the typical spots.

Kilauea Lighthouse:

Spouting Horn

Wailua Falls (Fantasy Island)

We went to a farmers market in Koloa and found Apple Bananas, delicious mangos and Horned Kiwis:

We had such a great time that we want to start planning our next trip to Hawaii soon !
