Ahhh...How I surely miss living on KAUA'I.
Those were the adventurous years..hiking into the Kalalau valley, hunting wild goat and boar..pigs, camping on the beaches,checking out popular "Donkey's" beach..cruising to North Shore...Princeville, taking in the Waimea canyon etc
Of all the islands, KAUA'I in my opinion is the most beautiful,so much natural beauty...so much like the lush,verdant green of home.

Hawaii is just OK. Tahiti and Bora Bora are Paradise. Happy people who live off of the land.
