Trip Report Back in Kauai ... with a Twist: an Ongoing, Boring Songdoc Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Well … this isn’t going to be much of a trip report because I’m recovering from surgery, and can’t do the hiking that I’d typically do in Kauai. But … hopefully, as I keep you apprised, I won’t bore you too dreadfully ;-).

Arrived Friday evening, October 4th. The flights on American (Nashville to Chicago; Chicago to LAX; LAX to Lihue) were uneventful—but the final flight arrived almost an hour late. Never did learn why. Having earned “Gold Elite” status, I was entitled to “Main Cabin Extra” seating at no extra charge. Those extra inches really made a nice difference.

DP was using AAdvantage FF miles and couldn’t get a flight until the next day. After such a long day, I typically stay at the Kauai Beach Resort near the airport that first night, and do a Costco and Wal-Mart run the next day before driving up to Princeville. This time, I used Priceline and got the Courtyard Marriott in Kapaa for $110/night. I really liked the hotel. It was a little more low-key than the KBR, and I preferred it. The staff was uniformly exceptional. My preference is the North Shore, but for someone looking for a central location (or an East Coast base) I'd recommend this hotel in a heartbeat.

DP’s flight wouldn’t arrive until 7:30 PM. I was given a 2 PM late checkout (at no extra charge—but beyond that would have cost $99) and was told I was welcome to enjoy the pool and grounds after my checkout.

Oh, but my first stop had to be Kountry Kitchen (in Kapa’a) for a fruit salad and one massive banana macadamia nut pancake. Now I was officially back in Kauai—and stuffed to the gills! Took a stroll along the walking path, feeling utterly at peace and satiated on every level. Ahhh …

The Kapa’a library (across the street from KK) was having a book, CD, DVD, & bake sale. I enjoyed browsing and bought some books (even though I do have a visitor’s library card).

Back at the Marriott Courtyard I dozed in a hammock and soaked in the Jacuzzi. Pure bliss after a more-than 15-hour travel day. Picked up a custom-made sandwich and some fruit at Foodland, and ate back at the pool.

I’d kept my toiletries and clean clothes handy, and used the outdoor shower to clean up, and a restroom for changing. Then it was off to Costco. A large, insulated bag served as my carry-on bag. I filled it with ice purchased at Costco, and was able to stock up on all the frozen foods and produce I’d need—without worrying about it spoiling before I got back to Princeville.

Next stop: Hamura’s Saimin. So, I managed to check off my top two food addictions in one day (Kountry Kitchen pancakes AND wonton saimin with a chicken BBQ stick). YUM!!!

Picked up DP at the airport and headed to Princeville. But … my devoted readers will be shocked to learn that my destination was NOT my beloved Sealodge condo. Stay tuned for the scoop …
