Sad to admit...this was our last full day on the island! Just as our skin was getting adjusted to the sun, our bodies have adjusted to the time change and we are finally stepping out and enjoying everything the ocean has to offer! We decided to spend a good part of the day at Hanalei Bay. Body Surfing was the activity that Noah and Leah enjoyed the most. Despite the high winds and current advisories. We found a great beach area that was clear and had wonderful waves for the kids to ride. Our only wish is that we would have rented a surf board. Everyone was making it look so easy. However, the kids did get to experience the thrill of "catching the wave!"
After a long day in the sun, we headed over to Bubba's Burgers for a late lunch! This is a must visit establishment! Bill Clinton and Adam Sandler were some recent visitors! All of us enjoyed a double bubba, except for Leah, she requested a corn dog.
We thought we would catch one final sunset from the St. Regis Hotel and a quick cocktail. It was wonderful and the music was exceptional. Dinner options weren't too great at the St. Regis, so we thought we would try the new The Tavern at Princeville on the Prince Golf course--well, it was EXCEPTIONAL!!! Food was fantastic, atmosphere was fabulous and they totally catered to the kids. The kids menu was better than most fancy restaurant entree's. This is a place we would certainly recommend and we all gave it a thumbs up!
Finally, we decided to sneak 18 holes in at the new Kauai Mini-Golf Course. This too, was a highlight. Noah allegedly beat Mom by 1 shot. I think he cheated. We all enjoyed this one! Four thumbs up!
Hopefully we get everything packed and to the airport in time. We start our journey back home tomorrow. Our flip flops should be back on the ground in Minneapolis on Friday morning--so get rid of the snow!!! Aloha!
