Trying to find the supermarket, we passed an abandoned industrial site of some sort. A mill, maybe. Being tourists on Kauai for the first time, naturally the_child and I went back there to shoot a few photos.
Once we'd gotten that out of our systems, we drove on down to Popui, where our hotel is. There were feral chickens everywhere.
A gorgeous road.
We got lost again in Popui, but eventually found our hotel and checked in. After sorting ourselves out, we walked around the pool and the beach front, encountering a Hawaiian monk seal. There were feral chickens everywhere.
After that we flopped our jet-lagged selves out a bit, caught some dinner and made an early night of it.
This morning I went walking at 4 am (Hawaii time). I got safety checked by a very friendly police officer, saw some people harvesting I don't know what in the tide pools by flashlight, watched the night sky over the surf show me fourth- and fifth-magnitude stars, and listened to the roosters crow. There were feral chickens everywhere.
On the balcony now with the birds singing up the sun. the_child has a surfing lesson in a couple of hours. Then we're off for a dinner cruise along the west coast of the island this afternoon. I suspect chicken will be on the menu.
Have I mentioned the feral chickens everywhere?
