We only had two things planned for today and one of those didn't work out. I called Smith's Luau first thing this morning about getting tickets for tonight's show only (after the meal) and was told that they were sold out. (I guess all the cruisers off the boat filled up the place.) Suppose I should have called last week to get the tickets. Well, you live and learn.
We did have a nice two hour brunch with our new friends, Pastor John and Susan Mills, from the Nazarene Church. We ate at the Ono Family Restaurant in Kapaa. The tropical pancakes I had were good enough to kill for.
Before our brunch we stopped by Wal-Mart to check out the cheap souvenirs. I don't think you really have visited a new place until you shop in the Wal-Mart. After Wal-Mart we went over to Hilo Hatties to get our matching outfits for Wednesday night's anniversary dinner at the Bali Hai restaurant as well as a few more souvenirs.
After brunch we chilled at the condo for a couple of hours before heading over to Poipu area for some sightseeing. We went by Spouting Horn. The same lack of waves that made our ocean tour Sunday afternoon so pleasant made Spouting Horn less than spectacular. At least I can better imagine how the water could be shooting up through that hole on a good day now that I have seen a little water on a bad day.
After Spouting Horn we just rode down the beach looking at all the resort complexes and drooled all over ourselves. We then stopped in the Travel Channel famous Puka Dogs at the Poipu Shopping Center for a Polish Sausage. If you like Polish Sausage you will love this place.
We then headed back to the east shore and had a 30 minute sunset walk on the concrete pathway at Lyndgate State Park along the shoreline. Then to condo pool for a nice relaxing and refreshing dip. That place can be romantic when you are the only two there.
So our "slow" day turned out to be a great day. But how could any day in Kauai be a bad day?
