Wow - I'd forgotten how long it takes to get to the islands. We all managed to get to the Kauai airport at about the same time, so that worked for us. All of our luggage made it too, which was an especially nice perk!
Unfortunately it was cloudy and rainy when we landed. But out spirits were lifted when we got to our hotel and saw how beautiful everything was at the resort.
In case you want to check out our digs, here are a few pictures ...

The Kauai Marriott is on the east side of the island, in the middle of Kalapaki Beach. It's a great little beach in Nawiliwili Bay. It's a perfect area for us. The water is calm enough to swim, with sometimes enough waves to boogie board. We've seen lots of surfers in the bay too! I think we found the perfect place to hang our hats.
