One of the most incredible experiences of my life! You MUST take a doors-off helicopter tour when you are in Kauai. Worth every penny!
We liked having a smaller helicopter so we each had a view. The doors-off helicopters have 4 passengers (1 in front and 3 in the back). The right side is the best – although a good helicopter pilot will circle around spots so everyone gets a great view. We did Jack Harper tours and LOVED it! Hubby rented out the entire helicopter so there were only the 3 of us (plus the pilot) and every seat was a good view.
Honest-to-goodness one of the most incredible experiences ever.
Have you done this before? What did you think?
Ryan’s first time surfing and he did great! (All those years of riding unicycle paid off, right?) . Love this shot of him catching a wave.
While hubby and I work, Ryan is working too. He’s writing a sci-fi story and has 26,000 words (over 100 pages!) written so far. He complained about how boring his summer books for school were so we challenged him to do something creative this summer and write something more entertaining.
He’s 13 and will have a novel completed by the end of the summer! How cool is that?!
Makes me think that if he can do it, I can do it too! I had a contract with a great book agent based in London who worked with a NY agency. But I let distractions get in the way of actually writing something. Perhaps it’s time to change that.
Sometimes our children really are our greatest teachers.
Played tourist after finishing work for the day. It’s sooooo beautiful here!
And because we went on an impromptu hike, I was the only one wearing a dress and flip flops. (It was a pretty intense trail!). But I was hands down the cutest hiker on the trails! 😂
Loved this hat from the Dollar Store….but it blew off once we reached the cliffs of the Napali Coast. Thankfully it was only $1. By far the most flattering hat I’ve ever owned.
We are trying something new. Working from someplace other than home.
It all started with an email that one of our business partners was spending the month in Hawaii, and she suggested we all meet there to discuss next-step strategies for that company. Because the 3 main partners live in different states, everyone had to travel for in-person meetings anyway. Why not meet someplace new?
So Alan and decided to extend the meeting and also work on other things to make it a month long working vacation.
These are the sunrise views from our “office” on the North Shore for the rest of July! This is our home base for filming, writing, and planning current and upcoming projects.
We miss our guard dog – he always has to stay home with family at the house – but something tells me we will endure! 😜
Wishing you a beautiful July as well!
