Train ride at Kilohana Plantation. We almost didn’t make it, and called ahead to have them hold the train just 2 more minutes! (they probably would have anyway, because things aren’t so punctual on “Island time”) It was well-narrated and we saw lots of different Hawaiian plants: Koa trees, rainbow eucalyptus, tahitian gardenias, cashew trees, and all of the tropical fruit plants (yes, I wrote it all down as I took pictures, because otherwise, I’d have ended up with a bunch of random plant pictures). I really appreciated the tour because I knew we wouldn’t have time to visit any of the botanical gardens on this trip.
Halfway through, the train stops and they give you bread to feed to the wild pigs and goats! Aside from the free-range chickens roaming everywhere, wild pigs are the next most populated animal on Kauai.
POG (Passion, orange, guava) Shave Ice at Hee Fat General Store, and Acai Bowl at Juice Bar & Cafe (well, in the car in the parking lot of Juice Bar & Cafe)
Betsy and I were looking for Christmas ornaments and came across this store of beautiful, tropics-inspired glass pieces (just looking, not touching…)
Very artistic golf shot! And while Al and Betsy were golfing, we did the “short” walk/hike from our rented house to the beach.
Wow, walking with beach gear and two 2-year olds? It wasn’t very short… we almost didn’t make it…
Of course it was worth it! We are with our cousins at ‘Anini Beach. Teddy is playing baseball with a stick and piece of coral, old school 🙂
