So… Will and I were supposed to go to Hawaii last year, but couldn’t sort out our schedules. We finally made it to Kauai earlier this month. We stayed in Lihue (south east part of the island) which made it pretty easy for us to get anywhere we wanted to go on the island. While Will and I were out exploring, Jamye was back at .retool. headquarters keeping the shop running smoothly.

We made it up to the north shore a couple of times during our stay. Some highlights were a self-guided tour of the Limahuli Garden & Preserve, Maniniholo dry cave, Waikanaloa wet cave, Secret Beach (and secret lava pools).
We hung out in Kapa’a a fair bit. There are several vegan friendly places to eat (more on that in a later post!) which made it quite appealing. We also enjoyed checking out the ‘Opaeka’a Falls and Wailua Falls. We did some kayaking on the Wailua River as well. The return trip was quite windy!
Highlights included the Makauwahi Cave, lithified cliffs in Po’ipu and the lava arch near the southern point of the island.
We made it to Hanapepe twice during the trip, including Friday night for the Art Walk, which featured a bunch of food trucks (again, more on that later). We also enjoyed the amazing views of Waimea Canyon.
That’s it for now. Stay tuned for posts on tasty vegan food and the gear I made for the trip – a carry on bag and a camera case.
