Beaches - #Kauai, #Hawaii - #SaturdaySnapshots

Recently my husband and I spent six days and five nights in beautiful Kauai, Hawaii. For the next several weeks I'll feature photos from our vacation.

Today's subject is Kauai's beaches. Having spent many childhood vacations at Padre Island and Port Aransas on the Texas Gulf Coast, I'm accustomed to those gentle waves and warm shallow waters.  Kauai's breakers are much more dramatic. They roar, smash into rocks, surge toward the shore, and send clouds of spray skyward. I love that! 

The photos below were taken on the eastern half of the island. We stayed in Princeville on the northern shore of Kauai and explored up and down the coast.

Anahola Beach Park

Nice paved walking trail overlooking 
this section of beach.

Spouting Horn Park, near Koloa

View from the grounds of our resort.
I believe that's Kalihiwai Bay.

We had hoped for sunny skies, an escape from the rainy Pacific Northwest. That's not the way things worked out. However, even though rain fell almost every day during our vacation, we ignored the weather and had a great time.

  1. What gorgeous photos! You have a way of framing pictures that makes them even more beautiful.
    Are those Jade plants growing in the bottom photo?

  2. I'm astonished at how there are no people. That's a nice bonus, in addition to the amazing beauty of the spot. There's just something wonderful about the sound of the waves.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your trip.

  3. Fabulous photos! I'm glad you had this enjoyable time away. Thanks for sharing.

  4. What a wonderful holiday. Can't wait to see more.

  5. Even though I can see the ocean every day if I wanted to, I still love seeing the ocean from the perspective of others! I love the images that you captured.

  6. What gorgeous photos!

    We spent our honeymoon in Hawaii but went to Oahu (my husband had family there) and Maui - we've never been to Kauai, but it looks absolutely stunning - just what we like, with more natural beauty and less development. Have to go someday!

    Looks like an amazing trip!
