I've been lurking around here ever since we began planning our 10th anniversary trip, and now it is just around the corner, and I'm getting nervous and excited!
I'd like to share my rough plan and get any advice or input you experts have to offer, so here goes...
Wed. Nov. 10 - Arrive at 5:30 in Lihue. Pick up car and check in at Pali Ke Kua. Dinner somewhere.
Thur. Nov. 11 (our anniversary) - Hang out at Hideaways Beach, explore the Hanalei area. Dinner somewhere nice. I'm thinking about Hukalau Lanai - maybe the sample menu with the wines, but I'm open to other suggestions in the Hanalei/Princeville/Kapaa are
Fri. Nov. 12 - Rent bikes at Coconut Coasters and explore the Coconut Coast. Smith's Luau in the evening.
Sat. Nov. 13 - Farmer's Market in Hanalei, then rent some kayaks and kayak the Hanalei River
Sun. Nov. 14 - Head out early to Waimea Canyon and hike the Pihea Swamp Trail. (I'm thinking this will take pretty much all day, right) Catch some sites on our way back to Princeville. Maybe dinner at Mark's Place??
Mon. Nov. 15 - Hike the first 2 miles of Kalalau and probably up to the falls. Hang out at Kee.
Tues. Nov. 16 - Fly out of Lihue at 9:30. Note really sure about this day.
Thanks for looking. As you can see, this is just the major plans for the days. I'd appreciate any input on problems in my plan, or opportunities to add something in easily that we might miss. Also, maybe suggestions on where to pick up lunches to take on the hikes and kayak trips.
Thanks for much for all your help that I have already gleaned from these forums!
