When we attempted to fly into Kauai our plane was delayed in Oahu and do we stayed the night in a hotel close to the airport. We then got up the next morning (on my birthday :) and flew to Kauai. We actually we weren't sure if we wanted to fly to Kauai at first because the rain was so bad and the damage and of course the roads were awful, but we decided to try it anyway. We are very glad we did! We weren't able to get to our original intended destination because the roads were washed out, so I bid on Priceline and we got half off this beautiful Hyatt resort in Poi'ū. The kids absolutely loved it. We actually tried to stay there the whole time but they were booked out. I am so glad they were now because up North is even prettier. We are heading back to the Hyatt tomorrow ( another great bid) but our time in the North had been wonderful!
