|A little strip of clouds added to the view of the setting sun in Poipu Beach, Kauai.|
|The sunset started like this, bright and relatively clear.|
|Then, it progresses to this point, giving us hope the cloud would provide an amazing view.|
|It was getting more interesting by the second, not minute. Note the streak at the bottom right.|
Off we went on an at least 10 minute walk to our room, frustrated as we crawled around tarps scattered all over the walkway floors. There was construction occurring in almost every area. This stuff usually doesn't bother us. But, at $300 a night, it would have been worth a mention when we checked in and perhaps provide us with a quieter area.
Here's the link to our review in TripAdvisor.
|When it progressed to this point, we knew we were in for a treat.|
After spending a bit of time relaxing and making a reservation for dinner at the popular Merriman's Fish House Restaurant located in a new nearby center, Kakui'ula Village, a shopping mall which in Poipu Beach that would appeal to avid shoppers.
|As darkness fell, it presented this view.|
Eyes peeled at the display on the camera, I stood in place, careful attempting to avoid making a single movement to ensure a clear shot of the breathtaking scene before us. We couldn't have been more excited to add yet another sunset photo to the dozens we've accumulated over the past few years of travel.

When we arrived at Merriman's Fish House at 6:45, we asked if we could get in earlier. They were booked although, downstairs on the lower level, they had a casual burger and pizza restaurant. We decided to give it a try when the kindly hostess called to discover they did in fact have an available table.
Here's the link to the review we posted on Merriman's Pizza and Burger Restaurant at TripAdvisor for details.
|With little sun remaining by the time we got to our room, we decided to spend an hour by this uncrowded smaller pool in the area of our distant room. Oddly, we had to walk to the main pool to get beach towels. That made no sense.|
Back at the hotel by 9 pm, we settled in for a good night's sleep and an early morning exit with a plan to head to Costco and Walmart in Lihue. More on that tomorrow.
Thanks, dear readers, for stopping by. It means the world to us.

|Louise and Danie came to pick up after our overnight at the Crocodile River Safari Lodge. As we approached our home, we spotted these giraffes, necks in a tangled mess. We all howled with laughter and joy for this scene. It was getting to be time to say goodbye to our human and animal friends as departure day loomed.
