Kauai 4 - Coconut Coast (Tues 06/15)

This morning after breakfast we headed to the East Side of the island known as the Coconut Coast. We stopped at a beach park and rented bikes. On this part of the island there is a 4 mile bike trail that follows the coastal beachside. We rode our bikes on the path taking in the spectacular views.

 After working up an appetite we stopped at a picnic table and ate our packed lunch of PB&J sandwiches with fresh fruit.

 After we rode to the end of the trail we walked down to the beach. The waves here were huge with a killer undertow so I didn't feel comfortable letting my boy get in the ocean here. So, instead we walked along the sand looking for sea glass.

 We actually found quite a bit, it's amazing how different the sand is on each beach. After our rest on the beach it was time to get the bikes back. As we headed back to the condo we stopped for a shave ice, which is obviously really big here. Once back at the condo we spent the rest of the afternoon at Poipu beach by our condo. Then for dinner we ate at Tidepools (our fancy splurge dinner).
Awesome organic green salad with Maui Onion salad dressing...yummy!

Max loved the chocolate lava cake!
Today was a great day....the right amount activity with beautiful beaches, topped off by a fabulous dinner.  Life is good on vacation!
