We’ve gone to Gillin’s Beach a bunch of times (at least 1, 2, 3 times), where you go down the private road and through the Grove Farm gate to the parking area and then hike down to the beach. Usually we get to the beach and plop down there or go to the right and sit. This time we hiked more to the left and hiked down the beach for a bit til we got over more towards Maha`ulepu Beach. So beautiful. We sort of had to drag the boys out of the house because it was football Sunday, but it was so worth it. Little did they know that we wouldn’t even be able to get cell service for score updates!

By the way, Maha`ulepu is a research site and habitat for endangered plants and animals and is also a sacred area for native Hawaiians. To learn more about Maha`ulepu preservation, check out Malama Maha`ulepu.

Goodbye Kauai Marriott!

After a long day at the pool and the beach, Paul and Kate had to pack it up and get ready for their flight back to Chicago. How depressing! They so did not want to leave! Especially Paul!

To procrastinate, Paul walkedl me over to show me the Kauai Marriott weather station.

Goodbye big, beautiful pool!

Paul said goodbye to the stray cats that live on the resort.

Goodbye koi!

Driving on Kaumuali?i. Goodbye Kauai Marriott resort! It was fun!

The Kauai Marriott Resort is located at Kalapaki Beach, so when we needed a break from the pool, we just walked over to the beach. I’d never been to Kalapaki Beach so it was cool to check it out. The beach is located in a cove, or a bay, so the water is not very rough. I loved the mountains and cliffs nearby. I wondered if everyone I knew pooled their money if we’d ever be able to afford one of those houses overlooking the beach!
