Day 27 – Hanging at the Harbor
Disclaimer: The second hike described in my blog post today, can be dangerous, do this at your own risk. In no way am I encouraging this hike, this is merely a description of our day.
We planned our day around a trip to the farmer’s market at the community college, so all activities were centered around Lihue and Nawiliwili.
After we picked up the much needed fruit at the farmer’s market, we drove over to Ha Coffee Bar for a cappuccino and a Hawaiian pour over.
After enjoying the jolt, we wound our way over to Kuki’i Point. What a scenic spot and another place that required good footwear to walk around the rocks.
From here we walked back up the hill and walked through the grounds of Timbers resort to another secluded area, where the wave action was even better.
Once we made it down to the rocks, I found a spot and sat, while Mike went exploring.
We were mighty hungry after exploring this area. We lunched at Kauai Beer Company. We each enjoyed a beer and shared shrimp and grits with a salad. This shrimp and grits were some of the tastiest we’ve had.
After the refueling, we explored the Ninini Point Lighthouse. Didn’t realize it but it is at the end of the airport and offers great views of airplanes flying overhead. We were also able to see the area we were at before lunch and yikes, good thing Mike wasn’t standing on that higher area because the waves had grown larger and would have wiped him out.
On our way out, we stopped at the 13th hole of the Ocean Course to snap some photos for a friend, who is starting a travel company. The views from the hole were magnificent.
We arrived home well past 3 p.m. both of us were tired. During the interlude to sunset viewing, we downloaded photos, napped, researched tomorrow’s adventures, and had dinner.
We honestly didn’t expect much from the harbor from the reading we did. It was surprisingly exciting and beautiful. Glad we took the chance to explore this area.
