Today we drove down to Hanalei bay to go to the farmer's market. The weather was not great but it did clear up later in the morning. The farmer's markets here are amazing. Everything is fresh and grown right here on the island. There is a variety of produce that you would never see on the mainland. Much of what was available, I did not even recognize.
If you look in the background, there are several waterfalls on the mountains.
After buying great local produce, we drove along the north shore to the lighthouse for a little sightseeing. It is always great. The waves crashing on the shore below and birds close by and on the cliffs. The Boobie birds nest above the cliffs. The white spots in the picture are the birds. In many places in Kauai, there are signs warning of highway crossings of Nene, the Hawaiian goose. Nene, is pronounced "nay nay". Several times all traffic will come to a halt for them to cross safely.
We had lunch in Kapa'a at Coconut's Fish Cafe. They had really nice fish and salads. Then off to another farmer's market that also had a lot of craft booths.
Drove back to Princeville and we took a walk down to the shore line to get a few pictures.
After spending most of the day walking or riding in the car, a visit to the hot tub and pool was required. It is a nice pool area with two hot tubs and a kid's area with a shallow entry.
On the way back, we took pictures of several of the flowers around the complex. Almost everything on the island has a beautiful flower.
It turned out to be a nice day.
6,700 steps or 3.3miles and 15 floors.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
