We spent an amazing week in Hawaii early in December, and now whenever we are on our way to go somewhere, Miles suggests hopefully that we are on our way to the “Hawaii house”! We took the advice of some friends and used VRBO to find a place to stay, and it worked out beautifully. We found a lovely big house owned by some grandparents who live in California and rent out the place for most the year. There is a caretaker who lives on the ground floor, but other than him, there is no one else on the 5 acre site. No one, that is, other than this guy and about 200 of his closest friends and family!
We stayed on Kauai, which is famous for its wild chickens. Their origin is a long story involving hurricanes and a lack of predators, but suffice to say, these guys run the place and are proud of it! Also, they have no sense of time, so apart from a very brief pause in the crowing shortly after dusk, they just keep on doing their (very loud) thing.
Anyhow, roosters aside, we had a fabulous trip, thanks in no small part to Mr. Miles, who traveled very well. He was pretty good on the plane and even managed to get a bit of shut-eye.
Once we arrived and got settled in, there was no shortage of things that he loved. If you ask Miles what he did he in Hawaii, you’re sure to hear all about the fans that he turned on and off, how he sat down in the water at the beach, and how Mummy’s ponytail got REALLY WET when she went swimming!
Rather than try to narrate our trip, here are some photos to give you an idea of how we spent our week. You can click on an image to enter the gallery, which will let you see the captions in full.
