Waimea and Hanalei, Kauai. Mari and I got away for a week of hiking and golfing! What a way to relax!

The lanai of our WONDERFUL cottage at Waimea Planation Cottages (It is THE place to stay on Kauai) The view from our lanai (See? there's the OCEAN!)
Another view of the peaceful lanai A make-shift "Stonehenge" of driftwood on Waimea Beach
Kawaikoi Stream, north of Sugi Grove, from the Pihea Trail in Kokee State Park Another quiet spot along the Kawaikoi Stream
Me, somewhere along the Pihea Trail Part of the ancient Pihea Trail was cut into the solid rock cliff
Looking north towards the Na Pali coast from the end of the road at Barking Sands Somewhere along the trail to a hidden irrigation tunnel under Mount Waialeale
Quiet stream we had to cross on the way to the tunnel Another view from the (now a bit more strenuous) trail to the irrigation tunnel
Still plodding along the trail in search of the tunnel A "tunnel" through the undergrowth along the way!
Another of several streams leading down from Mt. Waialeale A quiet trickle of cool mountain water along the trail
As we were bushwhacking our way up the mountain, it never seemed to get any closer! Pausing for a moment to consult to trail guide (how far is this tunnel?)
Water break! Take in the view (Is that a jungle out there or what?) What happened to the trail? (We never made it to the tunnel! We got started too late - that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)
A beautiful view back down the #4 fairway of the Oceans Links (Princeville Makai G.C.) with Hanalei Bay in the background Another view of Oceans #4
Stopping for a moment to take in the beauty of the mountain backdrop for the golf course Oh Yea! I got all of that one!
This is the worst lateral water hazard I've ever seen! Praying I took enough club to carry the water (see the lateral above). Check out Bali Hai in the background!
Hey wait a minute, That IS Bali Hai! A view of the North Kauai mountains from Princeville Makai
Boy, this sure was a gorgeous golf course and WHAT SCENERY! Three nines - all you can play for $55 (Kama Aina rate)! Showing a big cheese 'cause I played all 27 holes and stayed below 90 anyway you cut'em (44-45-44 with a birdie on each side)
Beautiful stained glass window inside the Hanalei Church Great looking hidden beach as seen from the Kilauea Lighthouse
