2003 - Kauai trip 2, Dad's first Kauai visit: Kalalau Trail; resort scuba dive; South Pacific Dinner Show; Waimea Canyon

In 2001 we took our 1st trip to Kauai and fell in love with the little island. Since we owned an every other year week in Pahio Kauai Beach Villas there, in 2002 we went to The Big Island. With 2 trips to Oahu, 1 to Kauai, and 1 to The Big Island since 1999, we were anxious to get back to Kauai in 2003. But this time we knew 1 week wasn't going to be long enough. So I rented another week in our resort complex and we went back for our 2nd Kauai vacation for 2 wonderful weeks. My Dad even joined us for one of those weeks.

2003---Orlando, Feb., with Dad and Angie

This was our first trip to Orlando using Dad’s timeshare at Orange Lake Resort for the 5th week of the year. Angie happened to be on winter break from UMKC, so she was able to go with us.

We spent a few days of our week at Disney. We made it back to Epcot---Dad’s favorite. Here they are waiting to go into the America’s theatre.
