Kauai I
March 30 - April 2, 2017




Kauai, here we come




The movie is more exciting




Than the scenery for the boys




Lihue airport




A walk on the beach




Brennecke beach




Right across from our rental house in Poipu




Poipu beach




Sunset




Calm




An early morning walk at 6:00am




Peter




Philip




Many one lane bridges




On our way to the North end of the island




The beach we were aiming for was closed for high winds




This dry cave was our highlight




The boys had to be separated - luckily we had a big enough rental




We found our own private beach




With no lifeguard to tell us what (not) to do




Beautiful shore




Us two




Us four




Peter found something to build on




He loves to construct




Looking for more building material




That's my house




Happy




Nice secluded houses




A river to play in




Papa and sons the builders




Watch out




A log raft




A crab shell Peter found




Rafting on the river




That log was too heavy to move




Philip also busy




Helping Peter build




Then resting




Hanalei bay after lunch ice cream treat




Messy boy




Princeville lookout




Little prince in Princeville




Panorama




Arrival back to Poipu




Evening walk




Moon over the palms




Early morning walk




Roosters and chicken everywhere




Chicks




Philip on a manicured resort lawn




Barefeet back on the beach




Just in time for breakfast




Our little rental house very conveniently located




Peter coloring




Back on Poipu beach




Very shallow




Brennecke beach




Also called Breakneack beach




High surf




Pretty powerful waves




But these boys are brave




They just want to go in




Philip with Papa




Peter body surfing by himself




Goggle fixing




Time for a short break




To dig in the sand




For hours




And hours




Papa our from a swim (or fight with the waves?)




Watching the waves




Look at that ginormous one




In a big hole




Yes, that's deep




Another nice day ends




Papa reading in the evening




Koloa downtown




West Popiu




Blow hole




Island breakfast




Followed by another morning walk




A honu - Hawaiian green sea turtle




Crashing waves




How close do you want to get




As close as you can, I want to get wet




Philip is happy he got wet!




Still watching




Peter more cautious




Splash




Resting with Mommy on a hard lava rock bench




Garden island scenery




Back on the beach




Paradise for the boys




Afternoon walk in Poipu




At some expensive resorts




Looking for an arch from our tourbook




Found lots of interesting rocks




And splashing waves




With rainbows




And sea salt in the cracks




But no arches




Beautiful view at the end of a dirt road




And a path to a cave




The cave entrance closed




So we follow the river




Where it meets the ocean




And walk back to the car

Back
