When I think of Hawaii, I think tropical paradise. The island of Kauai was a little different than what I was expecting. The weather was windy and rainy, maybe in the high 60s, when I visited. I live in the Seattle area and I see enough rain that I definitely don’t need to see it while I’m on vacation. This was summertime, and we were all expecting nice weather.
