It was super full moon in Hawaii tonight – 12% larger and some 30% brighter than usual. Chie and I got in our car and drove to Polihale at 8 pm.
We arrived just past 9 pm and just in time to see the moon rise over the mountains. It was beautiful! The sand shone in a silvery tone, the ocean crushing in, the stars above – even some shooting stars.
There were many people on the beach, mostly locals judging from their cars… And the way they were howling at moon rising over the mountains 😉
We spent an hour or so moon bathing on the beach before we decided to return back home. When we passed the couple closest to us on our way back to the car we heard some moaning from under a pile of blankets… Probably a victim of some werewolf is my guess 😉
Woke up early in the morning by heavy rain. Slept some more and hopes it would go away. It did…
Until we unpacked all our things at the Poipu beach. Then it started to rain again.
So what to do? Well, in Kauai the most likely place to find the sun is in the south-west. So we went to Salt Pond. Arriving there it rained.
We continue further west to Polihae via some miles of dirt roads. At Polihae the sun was not shining but it was not raining, at least not when we arrived 😉
We spent an hour or so at Polihae, eating lunch and enjoying the last beach before the magnificent Napali coast. And then it started to rain 🙂
Well, if yo cannot go further west you have to go back east. We returned to Kiahuna beach… Where it rained, but only for a few minutes. The last few hours of the day here was sunny. And the waves was as usual fun to play in 🙂
Before returning home we stopped at Kukuiula shopping village where they had an organic market. Chie bought some Kauai grown award winning coffee. I bought a piece of blueberry pie and vanilla ice cream for desert… After eating crab cream sauce pasta that is 🙂
