Day 2 (Sunday, August 9th), in Kauai was filled with exploration, adventure, and silliness. We started out with Princeville Ranch Adventures ( North Shore, Kauai), then headed off to Anini Beach for a swim, then back to the hotel for a bit to get some pineapple, then off again to explore Hanalei Beach at sunset (see pics below). The colors that changed from gold, grey, turquoise, pinks, at sunset on Hanalei were stunning. We ended the day totally exhausted, but exhausted in a super good way, and hit the whirlpool to soak our bodies, and gaze at the stars. In Kauai, it feels like you can reach up and touch the stars at night, and there are so many of them! We didn't carve out enough time to linger for starry night time shots, considering most days we were up by 4:30 to 5:30 am, and wanted to hit the hot tub by 9/10pm, then get ready for bed. but we sure enjoyed looking at all the bright stars.
Shaved Ice Paradise
We had some shaved ice and macadamia milkshakes in Hanalei at Shaved Ice Paradise. After ordering we took a stroll behind the building to find this amazing view!
