Kapa'a, Kaua'i - Olympic Cafe

§       Kayaking down the Wailua River (class 1) on a nice warm, rainy morning

§       In a two-person kayak, it was still quite a workout………used muscles I forgot I had…..hadn’t kayak for a good 2 years

§       A mile hike to a waterfall……mosquitoes, hens and roosters galore littering the way……..hens and roosters??? Hiking using the $5 dollar retro slip-on shoes I bought at Payless (in replacement of my ACG that I packed in my luggage)….not bad, didn’t slip or fall in the muddy woods

§       And then another mile back to the kayaks

§       The paddle back to the pier was three times the workout after hiking 2 miles: dealing with the traffic on the riverbend, upstream currents, strong winds, and the beating sun….

Kapa'a, Kaua'i - Olympic Cafe - Coconut Pineapple Pancakes!
.the guide had to double back for some friends just because of those conditions. It was quite a rigorous morning, though it wasn’t the struggle I thought it would be

§       Onto tubing…….hmmmmm, what the heck is that exactly

§       Ahhhh yes…….a lazy ride down an old sugar plantation canal waterway while passing through some tunnels, which is what made it fun and interesting, otherwise, it could be easily overlooked

§       The tubing ended in a watering hole, where a late lunch was set up

§       I have never eaten SO MUCH turkey sandwich in my life! This would be the 3rd day for a turkey sandwich lunch………and twice just this day!!!!!!!

§       Blossoming Lotus restaurant in Kapa’a, a vegan restaurant…..nice, and that’s saying a lot coming from a meatatarian, haha!!! And finally had coconut juice…….there wasn’t a whole lot of vendors throughout the island, which was baffling…..or when we do see one, it’s normally closed

§       No contact with the airline baggage claim
