Waimea Plantation Cottages are located on Kauai’s southwestern shore, beautifully situated just outside the tiny town of Waimea.
We spent a couple nights here on our trip last week. …sigh….such a sweet spot. Each cottage is unique, decorated with simple furnishings, incorporating some gorgeous vintage Hawaiian fabrics. Quiet whirring ceiling fans, airy kitchens, a claw foot tub. It’s semi-luxe but also really homey. And a great base for our time exploring Waimea Canyon and some western beaches.
Forgive the music on their website and have a closer look: waimeaplantation.com. The beach isn’t swimmable but there’s a nice pool overlooking the Pacific. The first six pictures are mine, the rest courtesy of Waimea’s site.

I’ve been on the lookout for a comfortable, normal strap for my little point and shoot camera. This Popular Disgrace strap from Crumpler is just the thing.
$15 and available in four colors, it has a cushy neoprene strap to but the overall design is so slim and unobtrusive that I don’t feel too lame wearing it out on hikes and trips.

Today, Tim and I set off for a week on Kauai!
I am so excited for a mix of jungle trekking, shaved ice snacking, remote beach camping and straight-up downtime. If you have any tips on the island, please let me know!

The annual tradition of SNOGA took place in Vermont this weekend. 25 women, two generations, one big house and a schedule of yoga, meditation, snowshoeing and big family-style meals. It’s the best.
It’s a welcome break from phones and wallets all weekend but I did take some photos on a walk yesterday at Plymouth Notch.

Spent the other weekend in Bend, Oregon hiking around Smith Rock State Park where we watched crazy/impressive rock climbers repel down from “Monkey Face” rock; skiing and trekking at Mount Bachelor and the necessary face-plant of a nap after it was all over. Beautiful place!
(Pictures by us; and yes, got a bit filter happy with my new Snapseed app)

Dargelos is a small company based in the Brooklyn Navy Yards who makes some really elegant solutions for city cyclists. I especially love the waterproof waxed canvas tote, which doubles as a backpack. ($95-210 in a few colors)
The belt pouch ($78) is also great and seems super handy. For high design reflectivity, check out the Tufts and Lightning Vest, both pictured below.
Shop online at Dargelos.cc.

My dear friend took these photos of folk dancers in Puebla, Mexico last spring. I love the overhead view, the spinning tops of color and fabric, the bold contrast against the grey stone below.

And happy about it.
