Woke up to a bright, sunny day ((: What a difference from Pittsburgh. This was the view from our hotel room. Awesome isn’t it? Listening to the waves crash in as we forced ourselves to wake up and enjoy the day.
Walked along the long stretch of private beach. So beautiful ((:
Then we decided to eat some local food. Bought Hawaiian food takeout! Its called Poke (pronounced pok-ey). I got spicy crab & spicy ahi.
He got scallop and spicy baby lobster.
It was soooo good! ((: surprisingly. And mariott has a expedia booth, so went there to get some deals for activities ((: She recommended that we did a helicopter trip that day because it was sunny and beautiful (and Hawaii is usually misty or windy). We also got a deal for a boat trip for the next day. The helicopter trip is about 275 per person. and the Boat trip was about 150. If you get those deals from expedia you get a free T-shirt and a free dvd for your trip for the helicopter ride! ((:
The helicopter we were going to get on
looks cool huh
This is the famous waterfall in Jurassic Park
This is a “tree tunnel” that used to be 3 mile long, but after a hurricane it is only 1 mile long. We were on our way to Poipu beach. Looked for restaurant on yelp and most of the restaurants had mains that were 30+. So if you’re looking for a place to stay in Kauai, keep that in mind. Poipu is definitely for the richer older couples. Kapaa (where we stayed) was probably for the middle class tourists. There was a lot of food there and mains were only 10-30.
Dinner at Brenneckes Beach Restaurant ((: We got clam chowder again, but this wasn’t as good as the one at Buzz’s Wharf. I got seared ahi with ravioli
He got fish and chip. It wasn’t that great, but it was one of the more affordable restaurants in poipu. We’ve spent more than what we signed up for so we went to the cheaper place )):
Went back to our hotel and spent the rest of the night in our room. Definitely spent a lot more time in our room in Kauai compared to Maui. And i’m glad for that because we slept so little in Maui!
