Sara Hopper's Guest Blog from Kauai

Sara Hopper, Director of Social Media Content for MSLO and who also works on this blog, recently visited Poipu Beach, Kauai, and wanted to share some of her photos and what she learned about the Hawaiian culture.

My sister, Meg, and I live on opposite sides of the country and, instead of visiting each other, go on vacation together a few times a year. This year, we decided to visit the Hawaiian island of Kauai. It is the oldest of the main Hawaiian islands and the fourth largest. It is nicknamed the Garden Isle, which is certainly apparent by the abundance of plants and flowers. We took advantage of a lot of beach time, but since we like to be active we also went on a few types of excursions. While the vacation was very relaxing, it was also very educational as I learned much about the history and culture of Hawaii. We had a lovely time and will fortunately be returning sooner than we thought; when Meg returned home from vacation, her boyfriend proposed to her and the two will be married on the beach in Kauai at the end of August!
