Greetings from Paradise

Probably not much quilty content for a couple of weeks, as we're on vacation in Hawaii. This week on the north shore of Kauai, the garden isle. We've been here several times before, so there's no need to run around frantically trying to see everything! Short list:
  • Kapaia Stitchery (fab quilt shop with lots of batiks and asian designs that they develop and then have printed in Japan),
  • some great silk-screen t-shirts from a shop on the way to Poipu that I can't remember the name of,
  • a drive up the canyon,
  • a stop or two at Tin Can Mailman (funky used book store),
  • way overpriced drinks on the deck of the Princeville Hotel while awaiting the sunset (and hoping for the green flash!)
  • some snorkeling!
We were kept up last night by a rooster crowing outside our window, starting at 2:15 a.m. The wild chickens are all over this island. At 6:30 he started some other loud activity with a bevy of hens -- I felt like I was hearing a porno film! Luckily they were all in or under a big tree so I didn't have to decide whether to watch...

Having a lazy morning now, enjoying the wi-fi and some Peets Coffee that we found in the local supermarket. I promise more photos when it stops raining.

Dang roosters! They're no good, I tell ya! :)

Other than that, sounds like a fun time. Enjoy!
