“Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer the goal.”  Elbert Hubbard

We’ve had so much rain lately, it was pure pleasure to see such a stunningly gorgeous sunset tonight!  Every year on our visits to Kauai, we make it a point to have dinner at a wonderful restaurant in Poipu called Beach House Restaurant.  They have the best seafood that I’ve eaten just about anywhere.  I particularly love their Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi.  Yum!  We were fortunate enough to get a “front row seat” with an unobstructed view of the sunset.  I set the camera on our table on self timer and took this shot of us looking in to the sunset.  Just a beautiful memorable moment for us.  And a great way to round out this really wonderful trip.  We head back to San Francisco Bay Area on Saturday so our time here is quickly winding down.  




“Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and good things will be yours.”  Swedish Proverb

We had great plans today to tour the McBride Botanical Gardens in Poipu, Kauai.  We woke up to dark, stormy skies.  It had stormed all night long with stretches of heavy rain.  We hoped that perhaps it was a bit calmer and clearer on the south part of the Island, as it so often can be.  However when we arrived at the Gardens, the tours had been closed due to wind gusts up to 50mph.  

Instead, we drove around to a few spots that we’d visited before.  

My shot for today is at the Spouting Horn.  The surf is quite high right now so the Spouting Horn was giving off a good display.  I decided to get away from the crowds at the lookout, and walked down around the end of the fence and on to the lava rocks to get this better vantage point.  

The sun even came out for a few minutes!
