At 1pm, I drove over to a lot only a block-and-a-half away. I spotted the realtor's sign a few days ago. The grassy lot was 10,000 sq ft, (~65'x150') a block off the coastline facing WSW, and surrounded by a 4' black lava wall. Quiet street. It's been for sale well over a year, starting at $1.5M and now listed at $995K. I'm thinking of a $875K offer and having Trevor design a 2800 sq ft "Frank Lloyd Wright" 2-level house, solar-assisted which is common here, renting out the ground floor 2 suites for $1,000/wk each. Al can build it! I need a few investors...
So after that hallucination, I drove 4-5 minutes east over to Poipu State Beach
Up early tomorrow for the flights home. I'm ready. This trip, although lonely, has been a wonderful shot in the arm and an education: Kauai is the island. It's authentic. It's largely escaped the rape by developers so common on the other islands.
