Designing My First Home on Kauai – Getting a Feel for the Place

I’m designing my first home on the island of Kauai this week (it’s about damn time). After spending some time playing tourist, I can’t imagine why anyone would want to build here when there is plenty of land available in windswept North Dakota. Different strokes and all that.

Robyn doesn’t fly in until tomorrow, so I took the day off today and hiked the Kalalau trail, perhaps the most beautiful hike on the planet. After losing count of all the tropical flowers and growing weary of sublime beauty, I finally arrived hot and sweaty at a 200 foot waterfall, thus presenting me with my only decision of the day. Would it be the skimpy Speedo or au natural?
