Along with the lush scenery I tried to capture the flavor of the Island with some street photography. Laura brought an up-to date guide book. The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook. Mine was 19 years old, and prices and recommendations have changed. My son, who lived in Kapa’a in 2000 provided me with points of interest also.
My Fuji x100f is suited for street photography, and came in handy at the airport and when we explored towns. Along with my xt2 I brought along lenses for landscapes, and distance, lowlight, and all around general shooting. The dilemma my friends and I faced each day was what lens should we take with us. We joked around thinking there should be an app for that purpose. And who knows, maybe there will be an app for this someday?
There is no direct flight to Kauai. My flight landed in Honolulu in over 5 hours. Traversing this airport is quite a task. I took note of this and planned to use an airport cart for my carry-ons next time.
Old town Koloa is a quaint town with a sugar plantation past. Had a lot of fun exploring here.
Koloa has this great ice cream shop, Koloa Mill Ice Cream and Coffee. Be sure to stop by, you won’t regret it! Another treat on this Island is Shave Ice. Not only is it fun to eat, it is fun to watch it being made. It does take a bit of technique to eat it without looking like an amateur.
Hanalei is another fun town to check out. Had to pull out our rain gear to protect our gear. The rain comes and goes quickly.
I end here today with the hope of getting time tomorrow to continue with some more of my photo images.
