I need to thank TA's again for recommending that we push through late night car rental and stay in Kapaa instead of near the airport. Wailua/kappa is a lovely region. We already miss the lanai right on the ocean, however, we love Poipu Beach. Boring day checking out and picking up groceries but we did not get very wet. Walmart and Costco were out of rash guard shirts so we headed to KMart. They are found in the sporting goods dept. We moved in and did our walk about to find the barbecues. We wandered down to Poipu Beach and two whales were performing. We even saw a full breach! OMG I never saw that the entire time the last time I was here. DH cooked a delicious steak from Costco. I bought corn on the cob and garlic bread at Foodland in Kapaa. It is a really nice store. Thanks again to forum, I knew to give my phone number to qualify for the discounts.
We are settled in and will check the suggested weather websites in the am as a fellow tourist suggested a storm is predicted.
