This is our last day on the island. I have some stray pictures to put up when I get home. We're beginning to feel Kauai is like a second home for us. We've stayed at the same resort four times since 2003. We even looked at some condos. I don't know how that would work for me, without having any of my own garden space. We're years away from buying anything here, if ever, so the concern is not immediate. I often feel a kind of tropical over-load when we're here for a week, but I'm not really having that now. In fact, I feel like gardening.
Anyway, yesterday was a beach day. We went to Molokea just south of Kilauea (the town in Kauai, not the volcano on the Big Island) looking for tidepools. We weren't the only people there, but we were close to being the only people there.
This beach was too rocky and rough for my meager swimming skills. I spent most of my beach time in the shallow waters off Kapa’a, rarely going out farther than I could stand up if I needed to--a meaningless insurance policy, I know how unpredictable the ocean can be. Still, no harm has come to me.
