Aloha. So, after all that gelato, we needed some time to rest…on to Poipu Beach! The only time I had been to this beach was on New Year’s Eve and it was dark, so I didn’t know what to look for. We stopped off at Sheraton Beach while looking for Poipu Beach before finally finding it. Then we all just soaked up some sun for a while…it was so wonderful and relaxing! Nancy and I took a walk over to the sand bar. The picture below is the sand bar with waves coming in from both sides - it makes kind of a path. So, of course I took this picture for Aunt Nancy who loves paths! I love this picture, too!
Then onto some coffee! As I mentioned in my previous blogs, everything was a surprise to Nancy. So, while driving amongst rows and rows of coffee trees I told her to start guessing, she had no idea! I told her to just “look around,” she still didn’t get it. Somehow she finally got it and realized all of these trees were coffee trees! She was very excited, as was I! We arrived at the Kauai Coffee Company and we took a stroll through the coffee fields. They have a path that you follow and it has signs along the way telling you about how they make their coffee; it is very interesting! Then we all tried a few different types of coffee. There is one flavor called Estate Roasted Hawaiian Hazelnut and another called Chocolate Macadamia Nut, both very good!
Next, Glass Beach! A little tricky finding it, but we did and it was wonderful! The last time I was here the glass seems to be getting depleted, but it looks like the ocean is bringing up some more glass. I love this beach and I think it is so unique!
Have a wonderful day and tune in tomorrow to hear about some yummy food!
