Kauai: A belated honeymoon

20.05.2016 – 27.05.2016

After saying goodbye to San Francisco, we boarded a plane for a two week visit to Hawaii. Parker had been when he was young, but this was Rachel’s first visit to the Hawaiian Islands. It was a beautiful and extremely relaxing trip for both of us. We ate an absurd amount of fish (mostly uncooked) and drank an absurd amount of Kona Brewing Company’s offerings. Two years later, we were happy to celebrate a “real” honeymoon trip.

Bye bye, San Francisco. We were able to see the Farallon Islands so clearly.

The Cathedral of the Napali Coast [Honopu Valley] This was a hard won photo as we took a zodiac [ridgid inflatable boat] tour that went out on extremely rough waters. Absolutely one of the highlights of our trip.
