Day 7 – January 31, 2015
Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii
Aloha Kauai Courtyard
On our last full day we decided to check out the Kauai Museum. It’s a small museum that is absolutely jam packed with artifacts and info about the islands past, present and future.
There were sections on the original indigenous people of Hawaii, the missionaries that came, the sugar cane industry, the wildlife, the role of Hawaii during WWII and more, it was hard to keep it all straight!
Right in the lobby there was a lovely gentleman demonstrating how to hand tie a fishing net.
We spent a few hours at the museum and learnt so much. We probably could have spent even longer but I get museum fatigue after a couple hours and needed a beach break.
On our very first night we watched the sun set at Salt Pond Beach Park so we thought it was only fitting to return and watch the sun set on our last night. Kauai has been absolutely lovely. It’s hard for me to do a “relaxing vacation” but I’ve done my best and this little island has treated us very well.
