As I was sitting on the Lanai enjoying a delicious cup of Kauai Coffee I get a text message from a friend of mine in LaRonge asking if we were going to be there that week with the Canadian Challenge Sled Dog Race!
I quickly snap this photo of the sunrise, teasing him that I am sitting on the Lanai enjoying the beautiful warm weather of Kauai, while he is maybe not enjoying as much as living with the snow, wind and cold temperatures of a typical Saskatchewan winter.
Nawiliwili Harbor is a Pride of America Cruise ship....that ship was very quiet and quick! We knew it would be arriving first thing in the morning and I had been watching for it but it was like it came in from now where. Not 5 minutes prior I was watching for it and it was in front of me. My daughter laughed at me for not noticing it, but when busy texting you don't necessarily notice things.
I quickly snap a couple of photos and send them to my friend, showing him was just pulling in. My friend's reply was "I wish I was on that instead of sitting in the office watching the snow"!
The cruise ship sure dwarfs this little tug boat that brought it into the Harbor.
It sure didn't take long for the tug boat to get the "Pride of America" docked and the passengers were deboarding for their day in beautiful Lihue, Kauai!

The best photo of the Pride of America all lite up at night that I could get off our Lanai. The ship stayed docked at the Nawiliwili Harbor in Lihue, Kauia for the night.
The Pride of America pulled out of port on Thrusday afternoon around 2:30 pm with the Tug Boat towing it back out to the open ocean.
As one set of visitors arrive by air, one set of leave The Garden Island by boat!
It didn't take long for the tug boat to get the Cruise Ship away from the dock and turned around to take it back out to the open waters of the Pacific Ocean. It was really neat to watch it leave the harbor with such ease.
Heading back into the Harbor!!
