We started our day with mass at St. Raphael’s in Koloa. Afterwards we went to the “leftovers” brunch hosted by Daniel’s Aunt Jackie.

Aubrey explaining that her cats sleep the entire time she is gone. She found the idea that Flora is an “energy ball” immensely funny.

We stopped near Kealia Beach for our picnic. It was a beautiful spot.

We then arrived at our destination: Hanalei Bay! Daniel’s parents met us there but they didn’t want to swim. It is an amazing bay with gentle waves and warm water, at least today.

After we swam we headed back through the traffic to Poipu. The traffic was only really bad on the bridge. After that we could move freely.

We walked down to Poipu Beach for the sunset gathering with Daniel’s family.

After it was dark we decided to have dinner at Brennecke’s. Kevin and Charlotte and Robbie and Shane came with us. It was a fun night and we enjoyed visiting with them.

Hawaii Day 6: Exploring the Island

semi-overcast 84 °F

We started our Sunday by going to the Traditional Latin Mass in Waihe'e, which was a little bit of a drive away from where we're staying. It was nice to see a different part of the island, and the people we talked to afterwards were very friendly. It is an extremely small community. Across the street, there was a warning about some rather dangerous dogs, but thankfully we didn't encounter them.

After we left, we went to Tasty Crust, a diner in Wailuku. It was an interesting, small place. The clientele seemed to be almost all local, and most people obviously already knew each other. Nevertheless, the service was friendly and the food was delicious.

We had banana pancakes, linguiça, and a biscuit. Katie and Anthony got omelettes, and we all split a piece of macadamia nut pie for dessert. Everything was excellent.

We then went on a hike to see some ancient petroglyphs. We parked near the general store, and then hiked along the trail until we got to the cliffs where they were. It was very hot as we hiked, but we persisted until we reached our destination.

The petroglyphs. These were close to the road, and may have been faked, but looked a lot like the ones we saw at the actual site.90_C1AB3D1A-4..B9B8381F500.jpg90_E6A8980C-B..61EDDB31976.jpg90_F8974F8D-1..2926D207933.jpg90_5EBF7DA0-0..4CDDF41ADE2.jpg
The definite petroglyphs. These apparently tell a story, and we were able to identify several human figures holding various objects, as well as what appeared to be a canoe. The information card explained the glyphs but didn't say what the story was.

We had a great time hiking!

Found this by the side of the road. The perfect souvenir? But it probably would be hard to bring it home...we left it by the side of the road.

We then sat at a table downstairs overlooking the ocean and played cards for a while.

We ended the evening at Mulligan's, an Irish pub in Wailea. There was live music, which was vaguely Irish (they played a couple Pogues songs amid mainstream pop and rock). The food was very good, and we had a great time.
