The condensed Android version of our vacation … Day 3 began with beauty in our yard. This house has gorgeous, spacious, GREEN grounds with palms, coconuts, roosters/chickens/frogs & giant snails, limes, bananas & avocados and streams [filled with icky, stagnant water … just to keep it all real]. Day 3 included Monopoly, and if that wasn’t enough tantrum-inducing activity, we headed out to mini-golf afterwards (oy. who thought that was a good idea? [Big Dude] “Memories to last a lifetime!”).
Day 4 we drove to Waimea Canyon, took the Jeep offroading along Mohihi Camp 10 road,
followed by a much-anticipated stop at the Kauai Coffee Company (free samples!!).
Day 5 was all reading (and some work) all day. No Android.
Day 6 began with sunrise at Moloa’a, and continued with the Kalaulau Trail hike – a trail with the most astounding visual splendor. And Ants. Millions of Ants. And Very BIG Hills – up and down and up and down and up and down. The Teen and Littlest Dude stopped at the beach at the 2 mile mark. The rest of us continued on to go to the Falls. I made it to the 3 mile mark before turning back (my ankles were NOT up to the task of the last mile of boulder scrambling). Big & Middle Dude made it all the way to the Falls (which were spectacular – I’ll post those pics later after I pull them off Big Dude’s phone) at the 4 mile mark. I thought I was going to DIE on the hike back – so embarrassing how many times I needed to stop and how many people passed me by while I tried not to puke. The day ended as it began, at Moloa’a beach, this time for sunset. With sore muscles.
