Yosemite and Bass Lake

Yosemite is one of the best National Parks in America. We went during the month of August and most of the waterfalls are dried up by this time. But you can still enjoy the grandeur of the iconic views of El Capitan, Sentinel Dome, and Half Dome as well as taking a swim or jumping into the Merced river.

When traveling to Yosemite we stayed at the Pines Resort at Bass Lake in California. This cabin style lodging is located adjacent to the lake and has kitchen, living room, and balcony among some of their accommodations.

The lake has fishing and swimming and an assortment of watersports. We rented a couple of jet skis at the Bass Lake Boat Rentals and Watersports. I would highly recommend making reservations in advance as same day rentals can be very difficult during summer season.

Wailua Falls Hike in Kauai, Hawaii

Throwback to our trip last year to the island of Kauai in Hawaii. This twin waterfall was featured in the 80s TV show Fantasy Island. The hike down is difficult at parts and not recommended for everyone.

Also on Kauai we spent a lot of time snorkeling at Poipu State beach which is extremely family friendly. You can often find giant sea turtles laying on the beach and in just a few feet of water you will find a variety of tropical fish.

While on the island of Kauai, we stand at the Koloa Landing Resort for families is ideal. Had 2 bedrooms, open kitchen, dining room, and living room with floor to ceiling windows that slide open completely. Well maintained grounds with multiple swimming pools and slides.
