Non Isla Kauai Trip July 29 - August 8, 2007 Part 1

A friend and I went to Kauai 7/29 – 8/8. I first visited Kauai in 1983 so I have seen many changes on the island. This was something like my 19 or 20th trip to Kauai but my friend’s first. So I got to play tour guide and show her all great places that I love on the island. The same friend went to Maui with me last year which was her first time ever to Hawaii.
We stayed at Kauai Beach Villas which is just a couple of miles north of the airport in Lihue. We did have a peek of the ocean from the lanai. It was relaxing to sit on the lanai and have our morning tea and coffee while watching the ducks and swans. The grounds were very nicely landscaped with lots of varying palms and flowers.

Poipu Beach Park has always been one of my favorite county beaches.

View from the outdoor bar at the Hyatt in Poipu where we drank a “Red Dirt” margarita. If you have ever been to Kauai you know why this drink got its name.

9/11/92 Hurricane Iniki was not predicted to hit Kauai head on. But over night the hurricane track took a sharp turn and hit Kauai as a Cat 5. The local farmers didn’t prepare for the storm so chickens were scattered all over the island. To this day you can find chickens everywhere from the airport to the beaches.
