Coffee in Kauai From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Thanks for joining me today for a little coffee break and more Kauai moments. Grab your coffee and come on in.

So we spent our last night doing what we did the first night, cooking dinner and eating in. As a matter of fact, we ate out just a couple of times. Rodney and Cheryl’s resourcefulness were absolutely amazing and Cheryl truly has a knack of being able to turn a chore into a cheerful experience! As I share this realization, it makes me smile and reminds me that this trip had so many positives, but like many things, it was time to wrap it up.

They guys already had their minds on their jobs and a couple of times Cheryl and I reminded them that we were still on vacation. It was definitely an eye-opener for me, though, realizing that it wasn’t just a George thing but more of a “guy” thing, slipping in and out of vacation as home came closer to reality.

We had an amazing breakfast, using most of the leftovers. Then we finished our cleanup, laundry and packing and packed the ice chests for the day. We weren’t able to get a late checkout, so we set off for an unknown adventure with George behind the wheel. Our first stop was to one of the remaining waterfalls – the name escapes me now. Looking at it from the fence, it looked like a thin white ribbon flowing in the wind.

Our next stop turned out to be a locals hangout, but you had to cross over a flowing stream to get to its peaceful grounds. The smells and the sounds were captivating and I so could have stayed there all day with my Bible, laptop, and a chair and have been quite content. It was the perfect spot to have a picnic. Maybe next time, I thought as we headed back to the car.

I was so excited when I realized where George had taken us next. We parked and though I was still in a lot of pain, I walked as fast as I could to one of the most breathtaking sights of Kauai, for me anyway. He knew how much it meant to me to get back here and it squeezed my heart with one of those a-ha moments because he remembered. See, I had taken a beautiful picture of this waterfall the first time we had come to

My favorite waterfall

Kauai and I actually had it as my background on my desktop computer at home. Well, just a couple of months ago, that computer crashed and the picture was lost and I never did find it in all my disks. So, here we were, at this unforgettable waterfall.

After those moments, we set out to find another beach that we hadn’t been to yet, which wasn’t really all that hard, and yet, getting to the one we finally ended up at took a bit of doing. The beach was definitely a locals beach and yet, it was nearly deserted. It wasn’t a swimming beach for sure because only the best of the rock climbers could get out to a place where they could swim, but then again, they’d be out with the sharks! It was a beautiful as it was dangerous though, and it was here that we spent the next few hours, relaxing in the sun, the sound of the waves holding us willing captives here in Kauai, and I cherished every last minute of it.

There was like a ledge created by the rocks where only the high tide would hit and all the crevices and inlets taunted us with curiosity so we even did a bit of exploring, surprise, surprise! Not! George found a crab that had a fish tail in its mouth and so for a few minutes, he and the crab played hide-and-seek while George tried to separate the crab from the tail!.

It makes me giggle as I rewind the memory. I wish I could replay the tape for you and let you hear this voice he uses to talk to creatures, including our four-legged creatures at home. No, I don’t want to think about home yet!

I’ll let you go for now. Thanks for joining me for a little break filled with Kauai memories and moments. Join me Wednesday for the conclusion of Coffee in Kauai!
