Rainbows to start, a Kalalau hike to follow, late breakfast, a bit of downtime to read and nap, a trip into Hanalei, a delicious dinner and a sunset. Yup, not a bad day at all.
We hit the Kalalau trail at 7 a.m., had permits to go beyond the beach, so that was the plan. The trail was dry, the trail was muddy, the trail was busy but we kept our legs moving along.
Returning from the hike, we jumped in the water at Kee to cool off, then headed back to the house for a late breakfast, early lunch. Afterwards, I read and napped, while Mike looked for new things for us to do tomorrow, that won’t require much effort. He was distracted by the dragonfly weathervane he noticed on the palm tree.
Late afternoon we drove into Hanalei to do some touristy shopping.
Dinner was the last of the fresh ono, encrusted in mac nuts served on a bed of taro slaw with pineapple, mango salsa. Followed by dessert of frozen yogurt, dragonfruit, pineapple, banana and papaya topped with lilikoi and mac nuts.
As we laid our towel out for sunset on Tunnels Beach, we noticed a rainbow arch in the sky.
The sun hit a cloud bank as it set. Seems to be the trend for the last week or so. However the after sunset cloud viewing was lovely.
I would say today counted as a pretty good day!
