Capturing Kauai – Cactus, Canyon, Turkey Trots – Thanksgiving

On Thanksgiving day there is a 5K (3.1 mile) Turkey Trot Run on the Beach in Waimea, Kauai Hawaii.  The course is from the Public Pier to the Small Boat Harbor and back.  What a great Trot this race represents.  The coolest aspect is that families, kids, and dogs of all ages participate.

The route is a subset of what Linda and I walk and or run almost every day.  She and I are blessed.

On this day – Thanksgiving 2021 – Linda and I will cover the 4 miles on the beach at dawn, hang around the yard, prepare a Thanksgiving meal, hike the Grand Canyon of The Pacific, and consume Thanksgiving Dinner.

The Turkey Trot is about to start.
Runners of all ages and all sizes run on the beach or the beach trail.


The Cactus are blooming in the back yard.


In all sorts of colors


Linda prepares the Thanksgiving Day Feast with assistance from the Border Collies – Sage and Willow.
