From Kauai

We woke up early after a sticky-no sleep night at the hostel. I don't know what my deal was, but I was way too warm to sleep. Around midnight, I decided to try to sleep on the concrete floor because it was colder and under the window. That worked a little bit. I got a couple hours down there and then was cold enough to go to the bed for another 2 hours from maybe 4-6. Rough night. But whatever. It was free.

We drove to Koke'e park, where you can overlook the north-shore cliffs. Waimea canyon on the way up was spectacular. It was really pretty, but the fog rolled in and it was raining a little bit.
On the way back down, the sky was clearer and the sun had moved overhead so the view of the canyon made for some excellent views.


We drove down this little side road towards a military site and got to see a pretty nice view of one of the valleys. There was a goat on the cliff....
We then drove down and around to the end of the road on the west side at Polihale beach. It was a huge beach with hardly any people. I got to body-surf some small waves for about an hour. An excellent way to spend the afternoon!!
We then headed back towards town, stopped by a blowhole and some lithified sand dunes at Po'ipu and caught the plane home around 9pm. Two wonderful days!
