The next pictures are from Kauai. Poor Diederik had to go to Hawaii for a business conference and added a few days vacation before the conference. Unfortunately Stephanie was not able to join him. The trip to Hawaii is quite long. It is actually farther away from New York then Europe. But Diederik cashed in some of his United miles and managed to get upgraded to First Class.
The first two pictures are from Larson's Beach, the semi-official nude beach on Kauai. The picture shows the best part of the beach, but the ocean floor is mostly (dead) coral and very hard to walk on. And there are plenty of rip currents (like on most beaches in Hawaii, so swimming is not always advised.
