Kaua'i 2023 Day 3: Dancing in the Moonlight

all seasons in one day 84 °F

Aubrey decorated her ukulele with flowers that she found on her morning walk.

We had a breakfast of sweet bread and pineapple again.

After that, Daniel picked a pink plumeria from a nearby tree for Catherine, and then we went to Koloa to pick up a quick lunch. The town of Koloa was very crowded, and it was hard to find a place to park. We went in and bought some spam musubi and some guava juice to have as a picnic lunch. We then set off for Hanalei Bay, on the opposite side of the island from where we are staying.

We stopped at a place with a scenic lookout along the way, and had a picnic in the back of our Jeep. There were a lot of chickens around, and the view of the ocean was beautiful. We had a wonderful picnic there and then headed onwards to Hanalei Bay.

Hanalei Bay was beautiful, with warm water to swim in but some rain falling every so often. We had a wonderful time there, but we didn't take a lot of pictures because we didn't have our phones with us in the water. Then we headed home, with a vague plan of walking to Kalapaki Joe's from the house where we're staying. We weren't quite sure whether everyone would go or if only some of us would go, and we knew the kids were starting to fall asleep. We decided not to stop for shave ice to get there on time.

Geckos are everywhere at the house. This one is in our bathroom. Later it moved elsewhere, and Dalton told Catherine "maybe he's in your bed snuggled up to sleep." This sounds like a dream to the animal-loving Dalton, but is more of a nightmare to Catherine.

Dalton also wanted to place his stuffed pineapple next to the real pineapple that we had brought home.

We all ended up walking to Kalapaki Joe's. At first we were somewhat concerned that it was too loud, but Aubrey was excited when she heard Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" being played as part of the live music. We decided to stay. The live music ended up being very good, pleasing everyone with a mixture of seventies music, modern pop, and Hawaiian music. "Dancing in the Moonlight" was one of the highlights. The food was good, and it ended up being extremely fun.

It was a wonderful evening and we are excited to continue our adventures tomorrow.
