Our family adventure Blog of places to go, food to eat, things to do & people to meet… where people gather.
Visiting Kauaiwas both relaxing and rejuvenating. Leaving simply made me sad. Our vacation details were unplanned, thus making the eight days unhurried. Usually when we plan out trips, it’s the flight to and from then the lodging. When we were in the planning stages, we visited http://www.kauai-hawaii.com/ just to see if there were “Must do or must see” activities and attractions.
On our way to get our baggage, there were kiosks with all kinds of tourist promotions and information. As I grab one of each, I am suddenly excited to do things even though my plan was to just be a beach bum and go beach hopping.
There is only one main highway on the island and unfortunately it does not do a complete loop. But you can see the entire island by air, land and sea. We rented an SUV in case we got adventurous and decided to brave some terrain to see hidden waterfalls and hike.
We spent the week at Bali Hai Villas in Princeville. If you have timeshare, it’s the way to go because food is so expensive on the island. $7 for a gallon of milk and $6 for a loaf of bread. Liquor on the other hand is very cheap.
Day One… We arrived via direct flight on Alaska Air from Seattleto Lihue. Stopped by Kapa’a Beach Park and found numerous roosters on the road, had lunch at Shivalik Indian Cuisine and swam a couple of hours at one of the resort’s pools. Later in the week, we found out the story about why there were so many roosters.
