I've had a change to decompress a bit after our trip so I thought I'd follow up with a list of the best and worst of the trip.
Best New Discovery - <a href="http://www.smithskauai.com/tropical_garden.html">Smith's Tropical Paradise</a> Best Restaurant - <a href="http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g60616-d600079-Reviews-Wahoo_s_Seafood_Grill_Bar-Kapaa_Kauai_Hawaii.html">Wahoo Seafood Restaurant: Kapa'a, Kauai</a> Best Fast Food - Ono Char Burger Best Snorkeling Spot - <a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&time=&date=&ttype=&q=kauai,+hi&ie=UTF8&ll=22.225468,-159.561095&spn=0.010071,0.019612&t=k&z=16&om=1">Tunnels Beach (Northshore)</a>. Worst Moment - The death of <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/inter-island_helicopters/1978347710/">Nolan McSkimming</a>. Nolan leaves behind a wife, and daughter and I'm certain much more. This affected both of us significantly.If you have an opportunity to visit Kauai I highly recommend checking out the places above.
