When frosty weather comes to town, Kauai beckons me. Too bad I cannot go at will.
The menu from our flight to Kauai in 2001. On the cover is a painting by Kerryn Carland, a Passenger Service Agent for American Airlines. She is a member of the Hawaii Watercolor Society. If you can read the detail of the menu selections, you will see that we ate very well on that flight! Photos are:
an aerial view of Kalapaki Bay. I took that pic during the wonderful helicopter tour. Below that is a post card from the Kauai Marriott, also showing Kalapaki Bay and their fabulous swimming pool, the largest in Hawaii. Too bad it wasn't heated. I spent most of my time in one of the seven hot tubs surrounding the pool. If pool water isn't at least 85*, I don't want to be in it!
The photos on the top are: another view of the pool, and two views of the lagoon or pond in the lobby atrium of the Marriott. It was filled with tropical flowers and foliages, as well as koi, other tropical fish, ducks, swans and other birds. A beautiful place! The last item is a business card from a fun store in Kauai, named "Two Frogs Hugging". Try saying that 3 times fast!! Being a frog collector, I could not resist visiting that store and seeing all their wares. They have statues for sale, both small and large, of two frogs hugging. I know Ribbiticus would love it! Be sure to scroll down to the post below - it is Part 2.
