Kauai - Day Four 5-24-06

Yesterday we finally had good weather so we drove over to the north side of the island (after eating breakfast). We stopped at all the beaches on that side. Up to this point we were tossed up on whether we liked Maui or Kauai better but we know for sure now. Kauai is the most beautiful place we have ever been. I'm going to post several pictures today. We found the most awesome beach we have ever seen. We plan on spending most of the day there today. It's unbelievable. We drove as far as we could go on the island and then came back. We stopped and ate lunch at Tropical Taco. Then we came back to the hotel in the afternoon and spent a little time just relaxing by the pool. Last night we drove to Kapa'a - a town about 20 miles away and ate at a japenese steakhouse. It was good but I think we prefer Shogun. I missed Shogun's salad - at this place instead you get a bowl of pickles, salad shrimp and imitation crab meat. huh? We then went to cold stone creamery for ice cream and Scott got coffee at starbucks and then we came back and watched the American Idol finals. We couldn't resist. ha! I still think Chris should have won but Taylor would be my next pick.
The picture of the building is our hotel. And the red jeep is our car. See all the chickens/roosters. Thousands of them live on the island and they just roam all around everywhere. Everytime we are on the beach or eating - there are roosters right near us. It's a little scary. And they crow CONSTANTLY. We have been sleeping the with the windows open every night so we can hear the ocean plus it's very cool at night but the roosters always wake us up.
Have a great day!

These are all great pictures!! I remember the roosters there...they are a little creepy!!! Isn't it just amazing that a place like Kauai exists (not that I don't like Arkansas, but it's just SO different and amazingly pretty there and we felt like we were a million miles from the "real world"). I love looking at all the pictures--it's so neat that you're updating from there. Enjoy the rest of your stay! (P.S. I'm glad you got to see A.I. there, too) :)
