I am back at home after two weeks of vacation. Once Jason and I left Hawaii and landed back in Charlotte we loaded up the car and drove to Ocean Isle Beach to meet the rest of our family for our yearly beach trip. It was an exhausting day of travel but completely worth it once we were able to join everyone for what I consider my favorite week of the year.
While in Hawaii we stayed on the island of Kauai (also known as the “Garden Isle”). There are hundreds of hiking trails on the island as well as tropical rainforest, waterfalls, and mountains so we spent most of our time exploring the island. We knew from looking at pictures how beautiful Kauai is but I still wasn’t prepared to see some of the things that we did. There were moments when it literally took my breath away.
