I’m a little sad about having to leave Kauai this morning, but vacations never last forever…
Who am I kidding? I’m very sad about it. No more falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the beach, no more secret swimming holes and snorkeling spots, no more lush tropical landscapes, jungle hikes, waterfalls or fresh papaya picked from farms down the street!
And what about the kitties!? Poor Tuxie, Tortie Girl and Tabby Mac. Who will feed the kitties!?
Oh…I know someone else will. I hope. It’s time for me to pass the torch/Friskies box to another CCL.
In other news, we kept busy yesterday, trying to squeeze in as much fun as possible on our last day here. We started with a kayak ride up the Wailua River (just one small part of it) and a hike to the Secret Falls, and finished the day at Ke’e Beach, located at the very end of the paved road that runs along the east and north sides of the island. There’s nothing else beyond it except treacherous jungle hikes and steep cliffs along the coast.
It’s going to be tough leaving this beautiful island, but that’s the thing about beauty — it’s everywhere we look. This time tomorrow I’ll be back in the Bay, so I’ll see you again soon from California.
But before that, here’s one last look (for now) at lovely Kauai…

This way to adventure!
Are you sure we’re not lost?

Looks like the secret’s out!

On the way to Ke’e Beach
Stop at Red Hot Mamma’s for a burrito before Ke’e Beach. It’s the last stop for food and drinks about one mile before the end of the paved road.
That’s Ke’e Beach down there…

Aloha, from your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. See you again soon from California!
