As I sit in front of my computer, wearing my favorite flannel PJ's and Ugg's, trying to keep warm. I daydream of a warm day, in the not so distant past.
Off we went to Coconut Coasters in Kapaa, on the east coast of the island, to rent basic beach cruisers. This great bike shop is located on the new bike & pedistrian path, Ke Ala Hele Makalae: "The path that goes by the coast".
The path hugs the coast and you see areas that can't be seen by a car. The path will some day stretch from North of the airport, in Lihue to Anahola. It's a bit of secret with the vistors but the locals use for walking and biking.
This is what is left of an old Pineapple pier. It's the only reminent of the old plantation.
There are older pieces of history, along the path. But you wouldn't know it, if wasn't for this sign.
There are a few beach acesses, that you can't see from the road.
Along the path are these pavillons with tables. Perfect for picnic.
Reminincing of this day has indeed warmed me. Ahhh Kauai.
All of this beauty, 3 bikes and a few hours, only cost us $68. It was the bargain of our trip. So if you are ever on the island of Kauai, rent a bike, pack a picnic and ride the path. You won't regret it.
