Christmas in Hawaii
The highlight of this trip was spending time and catching up with Steve’s nephew Bruce, his wife Tove-Lise and their daughter, Isabelle. We spent five days swimming in both the pool at the Kaua’i Marriott and the ocean at Kalapaki Beach and enjoying the variety of restaurants on property. For excellent Italian food, I recommend Café Portofino. Be sure to try the Scaloppine Piccata – you won’t be sorry. The owner, Giuseppe Avocadi, is from San Remo and he is delightful and attentive. You can’t beat the ambience since Café Portofino overlooks Kalapaki Beach which is mesmerizing at night with the tiki torches lit.
