Kaua'i 2023 Day 2: To Valhalla!

semi-overcast 85 °F

Before we were up, the kids, Hilary, and Ed went on a walk to the beach. Dalton collected this cup of plumeria blossoms for everyone.

We slept in and finally feel rested after our long day of travel. Then we got up to have a small breakfast: pineapple from Oahu, some taro-flavored sweet bread (Aubrey loves "pink and purple bread" and remembers it from our previous trip here) and some cans of Hawaiian coffee. It was delicious. After breakfast the rest of the group went to do some grocery shopping and get some souvenirs. We drove to Koloa to get a lunch.

Now that we had our lunch, we decided to walk to Shipwreck Beach and have our picnic. Daniel picked a plumeria for Catherine, and we walked on the beautiful path to the beach.

Our picnic consisted of lilikoi juice, spam musubi, and Maui onion chips.

We also had li hing mui powdered mango slices for dessert.

People were jumping off of this rock, which reminded Catherine of this scene from the show Norsemen[/i]. Catherine yelled "to Valhalla!" as this person jumped.

This cat seems to live near the house where we're staying. Catherine wanted to name it Pudge (after Pudge the Fish from [i]Lilo and Stitch
) but Dalton wanted to name it Sweetie Cat. It seems to be comfortable and reasonably well fed.

After that we went to Poipu Beach with everyone, and swam in the small, child-friendly area to swim. Dalton especially loved "fighting" the waves by punching them. It was a very fun afternoon, and after the beach we went to the pool before walking back to the house.

We finished the evening by watching the All Ireland Football Final between Dublin and Kerry. We wondered how many people on Kaua'i, or even in Hawaii, were watching this. Of course it was played earlier and we were watching it recorded.
