Day #9: Kauai (North)

Today, we made the drive to northern shore of Kauai to the Princeville, Hanalei Bay, and Haena State Park area. At a few points, we experienced a little drizzle but otherwise had good weather. The surf was really up on Kauai’s north shore, making for some impressive vistas:

Unfortunately, pictures don’t really do it justice, as the scale of the waves (some 20 feet high at certain points) was difficult to capture. 


Not safe for swimming…

In Haena State Park, we visited the Maniniholo Dry Cave, which is safe to enter and explore with children.

On our way back, we stopped in Hanalei for lunch at Puka Dog (a purveyor of Hawaiian style hot dogs that feature a special garlic sauce, tropical fruit relish, and mustard — all squeezed into a cored rather than sliced hot dog bun):

After this, Emerson and I shared a shave ice:

We spent the late afternoon at the hotel’s pool and grabbed dinner near the hotel.
