Hello and thanks to everyone who helped make our vacation great with helpfull advice, tips and pointers:) I picked up the ultimate kauai guidebook and was very pleased.
I was a little dissapointed that we didnt get to snorkel poipu since the day we went the weather was just as rainy as in princeville. We traveled west though and found the Sun at Salt Pond beach:) I was very surprised to find Ok snorkeling there all the way on the left end of the beach there was a small protected reef abundant with fish.
Overall the trip was WONDERFULL and lived up to all my expectation, but one...... Well maybe Ill discuss that another time or on another forum....We did a few tours THE one we LOVED was Kipu ranch andventures kipu falls tours. AWESOME!!
Well thanks again all:o) We will definately return next year and send a few friends and family members...... Maybe that will adjust some tourists to the fact that we (AFRICAN AMERICANS) enjoy paradise too and maybe just maybe then we wont get so many RUDE people who obviously left all manners and home training (if they were ever taught any) on the mainland .
Yeh I think that may help because I think some of them actually thought they discovered the Island and it was there own private retreat for their kind. Here I was thinking that we were all AMericans (American tourist were the only ones who couldnt stop gauking, pointing, and asking so many probing&inappropiate questions)
Oh well WE loved the Island and the natives though there were very few Native Hawaiians. Mostly imports from the mainland and abroad. We tried as much as we could to only buy from hawaiian owned and operated businesses. We got that information from the native Hawaiians who seemed to be happy to see more color visiting the Island... Its a shame the majority of the real deal Islanders dont even own property on their own paradise. Kind of reminscent of what happened to the Native Americans huh?
IF there be any other people of Color visiting this Island dont fret... If you have thick skin and the LOVE of GOD you will be
