1. The warm, balmy, perfumed air wafting over my face while sleeping at night.
2. Sunset over Bali Hai from Hideaways Beach.
3. Breakfast of fresh papaya, mango and pineapple on the balcony.
4. Fresh grilled fish on the lanai from Hanalei Dolphin.
5. Snorkeling at Tunnels Beach.
6. Taking a helicopter tour, being overwhelmed by the glory of it all, and not even caring if we crash.
7. No alarm clocks, no schedule, no stress.
8. The wonderful, friendly, laid-back people of the islands.
9. The million photo opportunities at every turn.
10. Driving in the convertible with the top down and an "IZ" CD playing on the radio.

(Sigh) Can't wait until we get back in August 2004.

1) Kalalau Trail (Napali coast) - all the way to the waterfall!!!
2) Sunday champagne brunch at Princeville
3) Martinis at Living Room at Princeville
4) Awesome Italian dinner with Bali Hai sunset view at La Cascata Restaurant in Princeville
5) Tubing with Kauai Backcountry Adventures
6) Snorkeling anywhere: Tunnels, Ke'e, Poipu
7) Martinis at Stevenson's Library at Poipu Hyatt
8) Shopping
9) Hearing the waves 24/7 pound onto the lava rocks below our awesome condo at Makahuena in Poipu.
10) Watching turtles swim right below our balcony.

Much of what others have listed but must also add:
Hawaian-Portugese bakeries - yummy yummy stuff - there is one along the main road between the east and south coast - wish I could remember the name.
