1999 Kauai

Who: Anita and Charles, Mom McCarthy and sister Gera
Where: Kauai, HI
When: March, 1999
Comment: We took Anita's mother and sister to Kauai in 1999. We stayed at a time-share just north of Lihue, the Kauai Beach Villas. Our flight on Suntrips/Ryanair from San Francisco to Kauai was delayed almost 16 hours; the plane broken down and they didn't have a replacement. We didn't get to Kauai until the morning of what was supposed to be our second day there. We went on the Kauai Movie Tour, a narrated bus ride showing various locations for movies shot in Kauai. We did the obligatory luau, the drive to the Waimea Canyon, and a boat ride around the north side to see the highly eroded Na Pali (Pali means "cliffs"). Our flight back was also delayed 8 hours in Honolulu. Moral of the story: don't fly Ryanair.
