Kauai Holiday continued


We have had some busy days here on Kauai!  Our friend Jen came to join us for the weekend and we had so much fun.  On Friday we went down to Salt Pond Beach…an amazing beach with lots of surf.  Jerry went into the water but the rest of us just sat on the beach and enjoyed the beautiful view and the sunny warm day.  Jen came in the evening and we went out for supper at a neat outdoor restaurant in Koloa at a beautiful spot where we could enjoy great conversation and great food.

Saturday we hopped into the car and drove to the Ke’e Beach, the end of the road beach which is absolutely amazing.  We hung out there all day, walking the beaches, enjoying the waves, Jerry and Jen snorkeling, exploring the tunnels and eating at Kalypso where we started out with Lava Flow drinks…amazing!  Long drive back to our condo but all in all it was an amazing day!

Sunday was Football Relaxing Day and we hung out around the cliffs watching the waves and Jen trekked and found all kinds of places to take some amazing photos.  We enjoyed a great barbacued meal in the evening and enjoyed a relaxing evening.

Monday we headed out to Waimea Canyon a spectacular and we headed up to the end of the road to enjoy the panorama view of the ocean and looking hundreds of feet down to the ocean.  We watched helicopters come in with their sightseers but we could hardly make them out at the ocean shore.  We ended up at the Shrimp Shack at Waimea town for coconut shrimp and french fries…the best on the island.  Jen then realized that she had some problems with her flight that she had booked, and would be leaving a little earlier, so we headed back to the condo and then took her out to the airport to head back to Maui.  We had received a call from our car rental place that we needed to bring our car in for some reason, so end of the story we ended up with a different vehicle, a van this time, which makes for great sightseeing.  Tuesday was spent just hanging out with enjoying a great lunch in Lihue outside on the lanai overlooking the water, of fish and chips and crab cakes…delicious…but lots to eat.  The rest of the day was spent relaxing and an evening of playing cards…which is always fun….and we are always glad nobody knows us or can hear us!!!!

Today huge waves as the trade winds are blowing hard…downpoured during the night so very humid and warm today.  Just returned from watching huge waves crash on the cliffs…amazing!  Now to another day in the sun and embracing the beautiful weather.  There is a blizzard back home in Saskatchewan which makes it even seem more beautiful here.
