  • A Day in Sunny Poipu

    Destination: Kauai

    old koloa sugar mill and old trucksWhile tramping around "Sunny Poipu" on Kauai's South Shore with my Big Girl Camera, my iPhone, and fellow photographer Anne, the periodic rain showers that darkened the skies—seemingly out of nowhere and, then, disappeared with equal ease—conspired to keep us moving from one end of Kauai’s South Shore to the other, as we resorted to photographic techniques to make the best of each situation.

I watched as my husband threw our little guy into the air and heard his squeals of glee. This was why we had come to Kauai—for uninterrupted family time. As I thought about how much we all were benefiting in this break from the norm, my aunt walked over and plopped down in a chair next to me. She smiled, and her lips said it all. This was paradise, and we were living it together.

The tropical storm was downgraded to a tropical depression as it made its way across the Hawaiian Island chain, starting with Hawaii Island and moving northwest. By the time it arrived in Kauai this morning, the local paper had already printed its front page headline, “Flossie Fizzles.”
