Hiking down to Hideaways Beach on the North Shore of Kauai, a great snorkeling spot for intermediate and advanced snorkelers (because the trek down to it involves ropes and steep stairs!).
My last day here on Kauai…
I’m so, so sad to be going. In a few hours, I’ll be on a plane headed back to the Bay Area.
I can’t wait to see Tabs again, but I’m not ready to leave these warm waters or my Kauai kitties here at the hotel.
El Hub thinks I should call the hotel (the Marriott at Kalapaki Bay) every once in a while to ask the front desk how the cats are doing… I think that’s perhaps a little too crazy cat lady, myself, but I haven’t ruled it out.
Before I pack up (le sigh), here’s one last look at Kauai…
Cookie (short for Cookies ‘n’ Cream) the beach kitty works at Ke’e Beach on the North Shore.
Cookie: “I claim this man’s foot as my own!”
Cookie: full-time beach cat, part-time parking attendant.

Duuuuude! What a night… I’m SO wasted!
The mighty Dragonfruit! — most powerful of all the tropical fruits.
I sliced it open with a plastic butter knife in my hotel room (note: wasn’t easy). It tastes like a watery, less tart Kiwi. Muy delicioso.
The aftermath! Isn’t that pink super cool?
I’ll miss you, Kauai. Until we meet again…
