The Islands Are Calling

Kauai Countdown – The Travel Bug is getting ready to hit the road…more like hit the tarmac for a trip to her happy place.  When I leave April 4th it will be my fourth trip to the Garden Island, Kauai.  Many people ask me what keeps me coming back?  If you’ve ever been to Kauai, you might not ask me that question though.  Its just such a laid back place, although not as laid back as it used to be.  There’s more than one traffic light on the island now, and there’s traffic during rush hour!  But the soul of Kauai is still as sweet. And with the wet winter and spring we've had, I'm so ready for sunshine and trade breezes.  

I’m doing something this trip I’ve never done before – taking a photography workshop.  It will be a five hour nighttime shoot with Kauai Adventure Photography.  I’ve even rented a special lens so I can get some of those “awwww” worthy shots of the Milky Way while I’m there.  An interview with owner Patrick Kelly is coming up on our First Edition Travel Bug segment this Monday morning. 

 

This Dog – reminds me of me….so excited to get off on vacation.  I’m willing to jump to the top of the kennel, just to get out. Check out his story here:http://www.9news.com/life/pets/climbing-shelter-dog-captures-hearts/424845492 

 

Grandpa Love – I close with this.  One of my most cherished possession is letters I received from my grandpa.  We now communicate by e-mail or Facebook, but a long, long time ago, we used to write letters to each other.  Its what people did.  I love this story of a Grandpa who wrote down the fun he and his granddaughter had over the years.  Grandpas are special people!  Hope you enjoy this story

ALOHA!!
