KAYAKING ON HANALEI RIVER, BAY… SNORKELING ON HIDDEN BEACH… HULA IN KAPAA… RUSSIAN FORT SUNSET – ALL IN ONE LONG DAY
What a day Wednesday was. Non-stop adventures from morning till dusk on a beautiful island of Kauai. Here’s a selection of photos from more than 150 pictures we have taken. In due course, I plan to put together a short film about it all. For now, here are some still shots along with a video clip filmed in the Hidden Beach of Hanalei Bay, followed by a slideshow.
But first, check out the headline news that greeted us when we arrived in Lihue (Kauai) on Tuesday evening:
“Different strokes for different folks” would be my caption. While the world seems to be on fire again, and another war is in the offing, the headline news on this laid back island is the death of a sea turtle. Way to go Kauai!

BACK AT HOTEL FOR ANOTHER SWIM, BEACH HULA
We got back to the hotel by mid-afternoon. After a short break, we went for another swim at the nearly deserted beach in front of our Kapaa hotel (see the map).
The waves on the southeast side of the island were quite a bit bigger than in Hanalei Bay. There was also a strong current that pulled me away from shore. For the first time in my life, I got to experience what it is like to swim against the current. Would not recommend it to anyone.
Eventually, I caught a ride on a big wave that took me back to shore. That’s where Elizabeth joined me. As I was telling her what happened, another wave knocked both of us on our butts. One at a time. It was fun…
After we cleaned up, Elizabeth danced hula on the beach to the tune of the music being played on hotel loudspeakers in the pool area behind us.
