You really know your on Kauai when your relaxing on the beach and then suddenly a beach chicken goes by. It seems no matter where you go you'll find one of these feathered friends.
One really nice surprise you may come across on a beach on Kauai is the Hawaiian monk seal. These are an endangered species. They will come ashore to rest. The best thing to do when you come across one is to keep your distance. There are volunteers on the island that will put up the ropes around the seals when they come ashore. You can see the ropes in the photos. These photos were taken at a distance with a zoom lense. This is just one of the many joys of coming to Kauai. These photos where taken on Poipu Beach.
Here's a picture of my family getting ready to enjoy dinner at Brick Oven Pizza. It's just south of the Pono Kai and right on Kuhio highway. The pies are in the $20 range and are made fresh with a fresh dough crust. It's nice to be able to take the leftovers back to the villa and have a nice lunch the next day. Quick friendly service too.
