Poipu is on the south coast of Kauai - so it's warm, dry, kind of like a desert with a beach along side it.
The rocky barrier makes a cove with safe, fun water for the kids. Much of Kauai has very dangerous riptides.
They were able to test out snorkeling here, and also the underwater camera. Mark actually caught this picture. Not too bad straight out of the camera. Most photos on my blog I photoshop before posting. It's been kind of fun just dumping them all straight off the card!
We hiked the coast. Again. Tired of hike pictures? I think we're all a little tired from the hikes! (Luckily I've made it to Maui already and am happily lounging right now)
We do love this hike though, to our favorite secret tide pool. They collect all kinds of hermit crabs and fish.
