Off the Grid ....A Summer Adventure

Summertime is one of my most favorite times on this island of Kaua'i. To spend a day with good friends and taking in the magnificent scenery that most folks never get the opportunity to experience is ono good!

On this day we went to a large ranch that had cattle and horses among a bounty of trees filled with fruit and flowers.
At one point the truck was completely surrounded with cattle. There was this one young bull and a huge adult bull who was as big as the truck.My favorite time was the time I spent with the horses. Mahina and Hoku were as glad to see me as I was to visit with them.

There were so many flowers growing all over and in full bloom. My friend, Frankie at one time took care of all these flowers and fruit trees.

There was this wonderful Kala, Taro patch in the middle of the ranch.


As we were leaving the ranch there was this wonderful scene of one lone cow, two mama mares with their new foals and two Nene geese looking out from the tall grass reminding all of us just how blessed we are to live on Kaua'i!
Mahalo's to Nelson, Carol, and my dear friend Frankie for one of the best adventures experienced this summer!
