Forecast was good for our favorite beach so we again went to Moloa Bay. To our surprise, the rain was pouring down when we arrived. Basically it was blue sky everywhere except over “our” beach. We sat in the car for 10 minutes until the rain stopped and the sky cleared. The rest of the day was great.
Went to Moloa Bay for a day in the sun. In Kapaa town we stopped at Moloa Bay Coffee store to buy coffee.
After the beach we stopped at Moloa Bay Coffee farm to get a tour by the owners John and Daphne. They showed us their coffee trees and, more importantly, their cocoa trees. And cinnamon trees and banana trees and much more. Very friendly.
In evening we had leftovers at home while watching American Idol.
Got up late and skipped the Farmer’s Market to go directly to Moloa Bay. The day was beautiful with lots of sun, some wind to cool it down a notch, and a lot of sand. We had a fun time.
On our way home we got caught in a traffic jam so instead of crawling forward we stopped at Brick Oven Pizza for dinner. It was quite OK, and when we were finished the traffic jam was no more. Great!
One of Chie’s and my favorite beaches is Moloa Bay so today we took Robert there. Not only did Robert seem to like it too, but a one year old female Hawaiian Monk Seal seemed to like it too. She had arrived before we got there and was still there when we left.
We spent most of the day here, relaxing, swimming, reading and exploring the beach. At around 5 pm we packed our thing, said good bye to the seal and drove back to Poipu, after a brief stop at Safeway for grocery shopping.
Today was the second day at Kauai that we missed the sunset. We spent too much time on the beach (if that is something you can actually do) and too much time in the grocery store (yeah, that I can believe) so we were back home passed 6:30 pm. Though sunset aftermath was still quite beautiful.
