Back from Hawaii and such a long time I didn't share pictures of a trip! Before it's too late and I give up blogging, I bring you with me, far and lost in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, after 10 days exploring two beautiful rocks we didn’t know yet, Kauai and the well-known Mauï island. Sailing and snorkeling around.
We loved Oahu and Big Island 2 years ago but the pleasure was equal to the first time, blown away by these 2 other beauties offered by mother nature. I let you appreciate by yourself with a selection of photos mainly taken by my talented husband. If you loved my pictures posted during the trip here, you will love even more this ones!
I came back with the head full of lovely memories of this family trip and a ton of pictures to sort. It was hard to make a selection since every single photo deserves attention. Here is the view on the Northern part of Kauai that tends to be more cloudy and greenish than the rest of the island.
Do you know the taro? It's up there we learned it's a traditional hawaiian plant, like a base aliment. Personally, I use it in powder for bubble teas and smoothies, my girls love it! It's a root and its use is similar to potatoes. For local people, this plant is essential and they had to gather into strong communities of farmers to preserve and protect the lands required to raise it.
I fell in love with these checked and watery landscapes, these fields just down the moutains, so flat, green and shinny.
Moutains, falling straight in the sea, corals and lava mixed together under water and this beautiful light in the blue of the ocean. The beaches of Kauai are gorgeous.
The girls had so much fun too and what a surprise to fall on friends the first day of the trip on the beach! Tunnels beach, located on the North part and close to our rental was definitely one of the highlight of our stay on Kauai. Relaxing, safe and non-crowded, it is kind of perfect beach.
Yes indeed, we loved the wild part of this island, far to resorts and crowdy beaches of the Southern part. Here above is a little trail to reach a secret tiny beach just down our condo.
We have been twice to South though. The first time to visit Waimea Canyon and we stopped here on our way up, amazed by the color and the softness of the hills.
