Where I stayed
That was the longest day of travel that we've ever done. Up before dawn in Toronto, 3 flights (and 3 increasingly intrusive security checks) later, we arrived near midnight in Kauai (5am EST), and then drove 3/4 of the way around the island.
Very dark of course, and no street lighting on the highway, we could only gawp with amazement at the black silhouettes of mountains and sheer cliffs that the road weaved around and anticipate the beauty that would lay shrouded until morning.
We were surprised to discover that the gated, be-fountained road marked "Princeville" was our road into the what I can only describe as an american suburb. I think we drove into every gateway until we finally found our condo.
