Day 306/Day 12

Down to Hanalei and the beach! There are several one lane bridges, at least three like this one. It is two concrete I-beams with a slab laid betwen them, resting on the bottom of the “I”.  Simple, fast and “cheap”. Apparently the storms in 2018 and 2019 were hard on the old bridges.  The locals […]

Day 305/Day 11 – Part 2

We lined up at the gate at 5:30.  We met a nice couple from San Francisco or there-abouts, and shared and umbrella during the brief rain storm during our dinner. Sorry, no food photos… This was the lead person for both the fire show and the coconut husking demo at the start. Hawaiians have a […]

Day 305/Day11 – Part 1

It started out a bit rainy.  But we had been passing by this nice looking mini-golf that apparently had, of all things, a “fire show” one Wednesday nights…we got two tickets! Then we ran down to Ka’paa, but we decided to explore a bit and ran through the actual town, not just the touristy bits.  […]

Day 304/Day 10 – Part 4

The long, wet road home! We drove around after lunch, and about when we headed back to the beach at Poipu it started to sprinkle…but we saw a rainbow! Rain in Poipu… “There’s a Giant Leek in the Street!” (Classical reference…go ahead and ask.  I dare you!) Then the sun broke out, we found a […]

Day 304/Day 10 – Part 3

We were driving along minding our own business when what should appear, but the Kaua’i Coffee Company fields and Gift Shop!  We really like their coffee, so stop we did! Coffee Beans…3100 acres, >4,000,000 coffee bean bushes! What else might they have there? Why of course, a giant tin chicken! Here is the Dailylife Wife […]

Day 304/Day 10 – Part 2

The Spouting Horn!  This is a lava tube through the rocks, that the water rushes into and the spouts upwards as a geyser. They say there used to be a much bigger one just around the corner, but a plantation owner blew it up because the salt water spray wasn’t good for his pineapple crop. […]

Day 304/Day 10 – Part 1

A bit of the previous evening that deserves to be seen… A then can we start the day with a rainbow!  (Photo by the DLW) We headed south today to Poipu Beach to see if there were actually turtles there as reported.  The landscape changes dramatically from what we have up north in Princeville. The […]

Day 303 Addendum

I thought some maps of the Hanalei NWR and area might be nice.  The first three are from the Apple map program on my laptop.  The last is from the Hanalei NWR website. ~Curtis in Princeville and Hanalei! {!-{>

Day 303/Day 9

A quick run up the road past Hanalei.  This is the overlook! We use this overlook a lot.  Several of the photos on the Blog are from it.  This is looking down the beach before where our beach photos are taken. There is a large cave near the end of the road.  People wade around […]

Day 302/Day 8

A beautiful morning to take out the trash! Oh, and the wildlife, too!  In the Unit.  Well, it is the first one we have seen in Hawai’i, so I guess we are lucky!  The man with the Raid can said they get into rental cars (and ruined a lot of them over the pandemic while […]
