Kaua'i 2023 Day 8: Rum Sunset

sunny 83 °F

We grabbed a quick breakfast at Sueoka's before going to Koloa Rum tasting and Gaylord's restaurant.

The restaurant is beautiful, and feels very pleasant with a nice breeze.

The food was very good. Daniel got pasta, Catherine got fish and chips. We split a dessert of sweet bread and taro bread pudding, which was delicious. Overall the restaurant was a great experience. It is in the former plantation house, which reminded us a little bit of a tropical version of Kincraig Castle.

Family Tree Farms blueberries, from Kingsburg or Reedley.

In the tasting room they had us make a mai tai, as well as taste a number of their varieties of rum. Catherine loves their rum punch, which we learned some secrets about how to make, and we bought a couple of bottles as well as some souvenirs. The rum tasting is really a fun and interesting experience.

We went to Poipu Beach for a beautiful sunset, much like we did four years ago. Dalton and Austin were playing in the water, and we ran into Catherine's family as we were about to leave. It was a beautiful sunset and a wonderful evening!

After the sunset Daniel, Catherine, and Hilary went to return some "lookie boards" (boogie boards with viewing portals) that they had rented for a quasi-snorkeling experience for the kids. We then went back to the house, then walked to Brennecke's for dinner and a couple drinks. On our way home we encountered Pudge/ Sweetie Cat, who followed us back to the house and then got cozy on the cushioned chairs outside the house. We hope that he has a nice life there by the house, and that the people who see him are always nice to him.
