Went to the airport and got lunch at Maui Snackbar, then boarded the plane for Kaua’i. Our plane, which was Hawaiian Airlines, was called ‘Amakihi

Some beautiful views of Maui as we flew for Kaua’i.

Our car for Kaua’i. We were pretty excited to be able to rent the two most quintessential Hawaii cars for this trip.

We saw Daniel’s family at the house where we are staying. It is very nice, and they had already gotten checked in. We were planning on going to Hanapepe for the street fair, but Daniel’s family decided to get pizza so we went alone. Hanapepe is famous as the town that inspired the Disney movie Lilo and Stitch, which Catherine especially loves. As we came into town, one of the booths had some children hula dancing and they were playing “He Mele No Lilo,” (the title of this blog post comes from the translated lyrics of the song, and also describes the weather). A better welcome to Kaua’i couldn’t be found.

Except, perhaps, in the form of malasadas, which we bought from one stand to have for dessert.

Our dinner came from Chipwrecked, a food truck with Hawaiian-inspired nachos. We got kalua pork with crispy spam and jalapeños, lilikoi-habanero hot sauce, and cole slaw. Catherine called it the best nacho she’s ever had.

Catherine got this baseball cap, and designed the image on the hat herself.

We found an amazing store in Hanapepe, which was very similar to Lahaina Printsellers. They had reproductions of old maps, including original prints from the 18th century. It was an amazing store, and we had a long conversation with the salesperson and ended up buying something!
