Kauai 2017

Winter 2017 started out with a bang. Bitter cold and tons of snow for the entire west. It got old really fast. We had no idea when we booked our trip to Hawaii that it would be the coldest snowiest week in years. When we drove to the airport it was mighty cold. We figure there was at least a 100 degree difference between Rexburg and Kauai. 
 We had a lay over in Honolulu. Our flight in there was so fun. The plane flew around the Island and the flight attendant gave a nice commentary on what we were seeing below. Diamond Head view was a amazing. 

 We love to get up early and see the sunrise. The seals come out of the water to sleep on the beach. 

 Sunday we went to Church and then headed for a drive up Waimea Canyon. Every year that we go there it is fogged in and you cannot see the views. This day was perfect and we had a great day looking at all of the overlooks. The Baldwins were able to come with us this year. We had a great time. 
 Fluffy was as excited as we were to see all of the sites.

 Fluffy was intrigued by the fat that Jurassic Park was filmed on the Island of Kauai. We re enacted some scenes. 
 Meanwhile back in Idaho the winter struggle continued. Andy shoveled part of his roof and minutes later it collapsed under the weight of snow and ice. I love storms but very happy to be where it is warm and sunny this week.
