I was very fortunate to celebrate my 53rd birthday on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. We were blessed with beautiful weather. We enjoyed golfing, walking, riding bikes, snorkeling, reading, relaxing, and eating! I'd heard that there were lots of chickens on the island, but the roosters are quite beautiful. We saw two different types of dolphin, spinner and bottlenose; and mama whales with their baby. Listen to this rooster:

Wish I could capture the lovely scent of this plumeria...

On the interior houses are built on stilts/pilings to protect them from flash floods from the mountains.

Cute bird couple

Shave Ice - like a snow cone to me, but the real treat was the macadamia ice cream on the bottom and the Azuki beans in the middle.

Pono Kai condo kitchen and Joe, the chef! We bought lots of fish from Costco.

Beautiful Waimea Canyon

Golf at the luxurious PRINCE north shore golf course (Jane, did you notice PRINCE?)

All things come to an end; dinner at the Cafe Portofino, next to the Marriott, prior to our 10:30 pm flight home.

I've been inspired to post a 10 on 10; I love seeing everyone else's - you all are so creative and getting more creative each month - with themes and everything (Mario & Ely's Clean & Dirty) Very cool. Here's a day in my life, 4/10/08:
Bob, our 17 year old cat. Jenny brought him home as a "free" kitty during a Tahuya Days 4th of July event.
Louie, our 5 year old, gift to Joe for Father's Day. He goes to work with us and most everywhere we go.
Joe & Chris hard at work.Shannon on lunch break; started working with us on 4/7.

SHOP DOGS
Chris' dog Bugsy, Billy's dog Rocco, and Louie (missing) get daily noon walks.I'm hard at work; notice the Pen-Ent company shirt!

This is sad. Our best friends are moving to Kuwait in June. We went to their pre weekend Garage Sale.

Our french friends, Christine & Pascal, with their dog Charly in their garage.



Christine & Pascal's 16 year old Sultanna. They got her in Kuwait.

Our friend Jean Claude, owner of La Belle Pastry on Main Street in Bellevue, dropped by the garage sale with lots of pastries and bread. I was lucky to snap a photo of these Napoleons before they were devoured.

Hope you enjoyed my day!
