Thanksgiving in KAUAI!

This Thanksgiving 8 of us island hopped over to the island of Kauai. It was so amazingly beautiful there. Honestly that was the most beautiful place I have ever been. We had made plans to take a 22 mile round trip hike, on the Na Pali coast line in Kauai. We borrowed many things from our bishops and set off on the plane with nothing but a hiking backpack packed lightly as we could get it for a week stay. I barely took anything. Most of my weight was in my food for the hike. This might take me a few posts to complete our journeys. Hope you enjoy!

The first day in Kauai we went to a swimming hole. The swimming hope was decked out with a rope swim, waterfalls, 30 foot cliff jumping. It was the best natural playground ever!

Wow I realize that it has been way to long since I’ve updated this. I’ve been so busy with so many things happening so I think I’ll post things in increments so you don’t get the whole thing at once.
Trip to town
So I had planned to go on a hike the Saturday morning after Lacey had left but it was rainy. So some of my friends were heading into town, (aka Honolulu,) I got a ride in with my roommates and they dropped me off at a random Saturday’s market. I mingled my way around and walked down to the little shopping center and had fun going around looking at shops until my friends arrived. My friends had ridden the bus and got off way to early so we finally met up after walking like eight blocks to find them. Haha But it was fun! We then went to the NEX which is a cheap place to buy things for people in the military. Kami, Chels and I after a long day of shopping called the bus to see when the next one went out, but we found out that the last one had already left! Yep yep so the closest one was about a mile away and was leaving in 10 min so we took off and sprinted a mile with our stuff and made it to the bus stop right as the bus was pulling up. Here is the picture of us at the bus stop, a little sweaty but so glad we made it.

Kami, Chelsea and I
By the time we made it back into town (the bus system takes FOREVER) we missed the last bus to Laie. Not knowing what to do we started calling people to see if they could come pick us up. At one point we were going to hit up a Denny’s until the early morning bus came but we got a hold of Gidion, who wasn’t far and he came and saved the day.
