Around our neighborhood in Poipu, Kauai, Hawaii

(Last Updated On: May 28, 2020)

I didn’t think we were up in time for sunrise – we thought about it, then dawdled, then decided to get going – so it is a surprise when we reach the shore and find the sun still making its first appearance of the day.

Our B & B is located just a couple of blocks from the ocean in Po’ipu, near a coastline with a patchwork of crusty black lava frozen in place between sandy beaches.

The coastal vegetation includes cacti and huge sea grape-type plants, with a few odd trees thrown in for good measure.

The shore also supports a number of resorts and condos, most of which are much fancier than our comfortable little plantation house with its lei-draped tiki.

Our neighborhood is also home to a variety of interesting birds, including that familiar tropical nuisance the myna,

chatty little java sparrows,

and a white-rumped shama that looks like a slightly exotic robin.

Oh, and at least one snail.

All in all, a very nice neighborhood.
