Hawaii, A Winter Getaway, is known to have some of the best beaches in the world. I have been blessed enough to visit all of them over the years in my travels to Hawaii. This winter I visited Kauai, known for being the wettest of all the Hawaiian islands, with lots of rain meaning very lush tropical gardens all over the island. On the North side of Kauai in the town of Hanalei  you get a real feel for the relaxed lifestyle of the islanders that call this place home. All the businesses are locally owned and operated so it’s easy to get to know and understand why they make their home here. Being surrounded by a beautiful rainforest affords such activities as hiking to beautiful waterfalls, canoeing and paddle boarding in the many streams that run down from the mountains. I want to share some of the beautiful scenery of my trip and hope to inspire you to put this place on your list of places to visit.

First day on the Island adjusting to what is known as Island time. Island time is what the people who live there refer to as their daily attitude towards time. In other words, RELAX! What’s the hurry? Nothing to get upset about, Every thing is going to be all right. If I could just bottle this attitude and bring it home! Oh well, I’ll just enjoy it while I’m here.

Having a relaxed attitude also means plan to be relaxed with what your wearing and expect to get wet and dirty everyday if you want to have fun! Today we are going out on a sunset cruise to the Napali Coast and I am so excited to share the incredible views with you. All of the Jurassic Park movies were filmed on this island and I think that just from looking at some of the pictures you will see why.

I’m wearing a top from Trina Turk’s workout attire along with some of her  black capri  leggings. Get the Details… Print top, (sorry this style is no longer available).

The haze you see in this picture is what they call Vog in Hawaii. We call it fog on the mainland. This comes from volcanic ash being blown over from the other islands. Common in the winter months, but still beautiful. Hawaii A Winter Getaway

So perfect it almost doesn’t seem real!

Yes that is a cave… The water in the winter, because of the swells, does not allow us to go inside the caves so definitely a place to check out in the summer months. Still not a bad view.

We were joined by a pod of dolphins that showed up to say hi! So cool to watch them right off the front of the boat.
