While we were on Kauai, we took a day trip to Hanalei. Along the way, we stopped and spent time at Anini Beach. But, before heading down to the beach, we walked Anini Beach Road. There’s very little traffic on Anini Beach Road once you get past the county park. Also, the further you go, the fewer people you’ll see. This is where the paved road turns to dirt, has only houses on one side, beach on the other, and dead ends where there are no facilities. That walk, however, can be addictive to those who get lost in the scenery.
We saw some spectacular homes and some that are now “well-worn.” One was even used in the 1992 comedy Honeymoon in Vegas starring James Caan and Nicholas Cage. The one that sticks out for me, however, is the green garage and shack in the slide show. It, too, reminded me of a movie set and I kept expecting to see someone who looked like South Pacific’s Luther Billis walk around carrying a cold drink and making deals with the locals.
By the way, I’m always on the lookout for good Hawaii photos. If you have some you’d like to share, let me know and we’ll talk about featuring your shots on Friday Fotos!
Hint: you can manually advance through the slides by placing your mouse over the slideshow and clicking the pause button, then use the forward/back buttons to navigate.
