Day Two / Kaua'i

Aloha!

The day started with a rooster crowing at what sounded like the foot of our window around 6am. I woke up to it, but Sarah inexplicably slept through the whole thing. A few hours later we got up for breakfast and enjoyed a prime view for our first real meal in Kauai. 

Afterwards, we went to the beach for a day of leisure in the sun. We had mai tais, fish tacos, and poke for lunch—very island of us. But, we were drawn into the noise at the poolside bar from the contingent of Cubs fans that got their hearts ripped out by a homerun that tied the game. 

At the bar, behind the diehard fans, we met a couple of couples (fun with grammar!) that had no stake in the game, and we got to chatting. Jimmy and Tea were in from San Diego with their one year old daughter, Margot; James and Ashley were in from Boston, honeymooning as well. It was all cut short at the start of extra innings when the bartender said they were closing. The look of sheer fear on the Cubs fans' faces when they were told that they had to walk ten minutes to the closest sports bar to see the end of the game made us anxious for them, until they ran off and we finished the game in the comfort of our room. 

The night ended at a local pizza spot for dinner. It was definitely a local spot, that served pizza. Tomorrow we have an activity planned that will take our photos to new heights.

Until then, aloha!
