We woke up at 4 this morning (since it was 9 our time) but tried to go back to sleep. We got up at 6 (yes on vacation) and got ready and went to Scott's favorite part of the day - breakfast. They have an incredible breakfast buffet here. I got papaya yogurt and Scott had several plates of everything. ha! Then we went to the grocery store and loaded up on drinks and snacks. We also got our lunch there. Scott got a sandwich and I got delicious sushi. We came back and attempted to lay out. It was pretty cloudy and a little rainy all day. At 3 it finally was raining pretty hard so we got in the car and drove around the north side of the island. There are a million one lane bridges but it was such a pretty drive. We stopped at K'ee beach - this is where they filmed South Pacific. It was beautiful and it stopped raining long enough for us to take pictures. There was also a cave across the street where water used to be. It was neat.
Last night we ate at a nearby restaurant called the Bali Hai. It was supposed to be the "most romantic restaurant in Hawaii." It was very beautiful - open looking at the mountain and all candle light. The food wasn't that great. We both got steaks and as Scott said "this is a little western sizzleish". ha! Not that we don't like western sizzlin but for the price we were paying - we expected a little more. We did get a good dessert! We were exhausted and went to bed early. Our first full day in kauai was wonderful - despite the rain! (Forecast is sunny the rest of the week)!
