Arriving in Kauai after 13 hours flight time, airport time extra.
Enacted my new travel tradition, alight from plane and go ASAP to a craft brewery, if available. Kauai Beer Company was only 2 miles away from the airport. Locally brewed beer and creative menu. The beers pictured are only 4 ounces, put your eyes back in your head. That's only a pint each.
Made it to our rented cottage in Wailua.
Entrance to the grounds.
There were several cottages and a big ohana house on the property. Kayaks and bikes were available gratis, and the property was right on the Wailua river with boat entrance. We didn't get to use the boats or bikes, too busy seeing the island and hiking.
