One Week on Kauai

After Mr. Man messed up his foot on the first-day hike, we thought a gentle bike ride a good idea. So we rented these beach cruisers with wide handle bars, three gears, and wobbly frames and coasted along a 5-mile path along the ocean.

This island is 100% our fav.

The water is cooler than it was in Oahu last year but that could have been simply because our skin had been slightly toasted the days before.

The feral chickens are everywhere!

We took the advice of some hikers we met and snuck onto a resort, parked the car, and hiked down a fairly steep ravine to see sea turtles. The grass was as high as Steve!

We saw several turtles playing in the surf and swimming but it was hard to get photos of them. We saw more colorful chickens.

Played and swam on more beaches – this is the Anini beach but old locals call it Wanini. The ‘W’ fell of the sign some decades ago and it got accidentally renamed.

This was by far my favorite. No crowds, great shade, and just lovely.

Then, we took a helicopter ride!

Saw Jurassic falls and flew along the Napali coast.
