Relaxing on Kauai.

We have been on the island of Kauai for about a week now and it has been amazing. It is prettier than Oahu and there are less people around. One thing that is still the same here on Kauai is the chicken and the roosters. Wow they are everywhere! I have never seen to many chickens running around. We thought on the last island that they must have escaped from somewhere but there are just as many here!

 The last couple of days we have gone from relaxing, snorkelling and throwing balls on the beach. To swimming in the pool.

We have found this beautiful little beach that they have made a pond in with fish. You swim in the pond which is in the ocean but you don’t get the big waves splashing you everywhere. In the pond there is a reef with lots of fish, octopus and turtles. Stephen took Henry out this morning to show him. He loves it.

 This afternoon we spent about 2 hours in the pool with Henry swimming under water collecting things from the bottom of the pool. It’s the new thing, to swim under water. Henry is finding this so much fun. He can’t swim properly yet but he has no fear. He took his armbands off and just jumped in. Now we have to keep telling him to keep his head above the water.

Every night we borrow a film from the front desk. It is always a cartoon of course and it is always Henrys choice. So far we have seen, Robots, the Minions, the Croods and Pinocchio. We all sit on the sofa and cuddle up.  It is a lovely way to end the day.

 Tonight, is our last night in this hotel, we move to an Airbnb tomorrow on the southwest side of Kauai. We shall see what adventures that side will bring.

 Possibly some canoeing.

These two are the most important people in my life.

The body board has been a huge hit. The waves were huge the other day and Stephen got a good workout going out in them.

The water is amazing. So warm and clean.

This was a great disscovery for Henry, that you can go under water if you hold your breath!

It is difficult not to join in when there is so much excitment!
