Kauai Day Six

We hopped in our jeep this morning and we were off!
First stop was Java Kai for breakfast. The food was great - I had the best pineapple muffin and a fruit smoothie and Scott had waffles - but the people working there were the rudest I have ever seen in my life. The lady taking my order practically yelled at me.
But we are in Kauai -- so we headed off to some beautiful spots. It was SUCH a beautiful day!!!


We hit our favorite beach (until we discovered an even better one later in the day!)
We had pizza for lunch. Seriously - I'm so scared to see the scales when we get back!
Right by our hotel - there is kind of a "secret" beach called Hideaways. You have to take a very steep trail to get to it. We didn't go last time and we decided we would try it this time. You have to hang on to a rope to go down the cliff ..........
This is looking down at the beach from about halfway down

The beach was GORGEOUS! We loved it so much. We plan to go again - even the hike back nearly killed us.
Tonight we ate at Saffron. It was VERY good. Scott had beef tenderloin and I had paella.
We came back and watched American Idol results. Go David Cook!!!! That's all I'm saying!!!!

P.S. I got my yellow dress at Forever 21. I was really trying to branch out on color - I'm normally a black dress girl. But yellow is the "in" color this summer so I thought I would try it! ha!

I am loving following your days in Hawaii! It looks absolutely breathtaking and a place I must go as soon as possible! And every time I see pictures of your food, my mouth starts watering, especially the desserts. I'm so thankful you're having a great time!

Lindsey said...

I'm glad to know (kind of) another couple that goes on vacation and eats out every meal. I mean, I totally think that is what vacations should be about. Rest, food, and sand.

ACC-mom said...

The Garners said...

The yellow dress looks great!

The secret beach is AMAZING--wow!!!

I'm very excited about the AI results...but a little stressed b/c we'll be in GS next week during the finale. I hope we can watch it, but with 4 kids and not knowing what our schedule will be and no DVR, I'm worried! :) We'll record it here of course, but it will be almost impossible not to hear who wins! I think both Davids are great--I'd be happy with either as the winner.

Nicole M Wood said...

The Browns said...

Kelly I love the dress...you look fab! When you get back you need to post some not-to-expensive, but nice places to get summer dresses. I'm fixing to have my FIRST summer in Vegas & I'm not a shorts person. I think I will be living in dresses & capris (but those might get hot). Anyways, if you ever get the chance, post a few places :D

Have fun girl!
