Kauai (non skiing)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Made it to Kauai for 10 days. Backpacked. Popped the question. Condo-ed. Beached. Paddleboarded. Drank. Ate sushi. And watched sunsets and rainbows.

Car camp.


Kalalau trail.


Hanakapi'ai Beach.


Kalalau trail.


Kalalau trail.


Heading into Kalalau beach.


We got engaged on Kalalau beach. The camera stopped working the moment we got to the beach. So, no pictures of campsites. No pictures of engagements. No pictures of the beach. We took a Napali cruise. We got photos of the beach from there. They'll have to do.

The waterfall you are very stoked for after the hike in.


The cave in the middle was our campsite. That's where I popped the question.


Some of the area you hike through.


Condo time.


The soon to be ol' ball and chain.


Here's a sunset.


I was really there. Here's proof.


More Sarah.


Standard issue Kilauea lighthouse photo.


Standard issue Waimea canyon shot.


Hanalei pier.


Hanalei.


We'll finish her off with a Hanalei rainbow from the lanai.


Thanks for readin'

Splitter, I Love Kauai!
We eloped and spent our honeymoon in Hawaii - 2 Weeks!!!!
Our favourite jaunt was the 4 days on Kauai!!!
Worst part of the trip, the film was ruined somehow, and all our pics from that part were ruined. This was 20 years ago, before digital.

Man, you continue to inspire euphoric feelings!

Congratulations! We love Kauai and were just there too with our 2 y/o. Looks like you had a nice stay at Hanalei Bay Resort (HBR) when you were done hiking/camping on the Kalaulau Trail.

Did you see the hammerhead sharks in Hanalei Bay? I went swimming, and after I came out some people suggested I talk with the lifeguard, and he was about to post shark warnings on the beach. Once I started looking for sharks, it took me about 5 minutes to see a dark shape (about 6' long) following some fish around the bay within about 50 yards of shore.

Yeah, we stayed at Hanalei Bay Resort. It was nice to have a kitchen.

We didn't see any sharks in the bay. One day we were headed paddle boarding in the bay. All of the other surfers and paddleboarders were leaving when we drove up. We thought the conditions just sucked. But they were great. So we paddled all over the bay, around to Princeville and then headed in to the beach for a break and some swimming. Turns out they had sharks that day and the warnings were up. We were a long way from where we put in. So we paddled back through the bay, sticking close, but not 50 yards from the shore and made it back to the car.

Mrs. Yuki & I found a nice beach shack all to ourselves just south of the public campground. Best and most relaxing vacation ever.

Thanks for the photos ..... brought back lots of memories.
