Kauai has amazing weather, we had a convertable and we knew we were going
for a drive. We had already been south and explored the area around
the hotel, so it was to the end of the road. Setting off from Kapa'a,
we drove North. Driving past Kapa'a proper, the countryside opened
up to massive sugar cane fields or small farms. The Anahola mountains
come out the landscape, and pullover let us and anyone else with an instimatic
try and capture their grandure.
Our first real destination was the Kilauea
. After the lighthouse, we continued driving west high
above the ocean. At Hanalei bay the road decends down to ocean level
and where you can get beack access.
Near the end of the road is the Haena Beach park with it's dry cave where
a higher sea level eroded a large shelter under the cliff face.
The connected park is also brilliant to see. With the northern exposure
the winter conditions are spectacular if brutal.
After a brief walk around Ke'e beach, we drove back, but not before stopping
Hanalei park for a shaved ice and burgers.
