Lihue, HawaiiLihue, Hawaii Community SpotlightLihue is the capital city of Kauai Island, and despite it being heavily urbanized compared to other towns on the island, it still retains its charming tropical paradise feel. There are beautiful natural wonders, tourist-friendly areas, and landmark attractions that make the region quite attractive to locals and visitors alike. Like many other communities, Lihue was originally established as a sugarcane plantation by German colonists in 1849. The plantation industry declined through the years, and most mills and farms were abandoned and replaced by tourism which became the primary industry in Hawaii.Check out our original blog post at https://kauaicondosandhomes.com/. Top Attractions in LihueFor a lovely day tour learning more about the histo...

Throwback Thursday: Sabrage for the Sunset in KauaiSabrage is a ceremony where a bottle of champagne is opened with a sabre, harking back to Napoleonic times in France (well, that's what Google says!). There is even a special sword - a Champagne Sword - often used for sabrage. The St. Regis Hotel in Princeville, Kauai, celebrates the sunset every night with this ceremony which we enjoyed a number of times (most recently in 2017). The sunset, and views from the St. Regis, never disappointed!

Throwback Thursday: A New Kind of Graffiti  We were visiting Kauai in September 2017 and exploring the art town of Hanapepe. There is a swinging bridge there that's pretty cool to walk over - that's another story. But close by the bridge we noticed quite a bit of graffiti on some of the plants, the leaves of which were apparently quite suitable for amateur artists. It was sort of a shame to see them defaced, and the first time, other than seeing it on tree trunks, that I have seen plant leaf graffiti.

Throwback ThursdayRainbow in Princeville, Kauai  Like many, we miss the opportunity to travel because of the pandemic...well, we COULD, but... and have recently been talking about our past trips to Kauai and Maui, and how nice it would be to just pack up and go. But it's nice to have lots of photos to remember those trips for now. Rainbows are pretty common there, and always fun to see, especially when you are just sitting around relaxing by the pool overlooking the ocean, as we were here before dinner in Princeville, Kauai.
