Goodbye Hawaii

01 July 2011 | Hanalei Bay, Kauai
Hard to believe we've lingered 8 months in Hawaiian waters, and today is the day we're sailing out across the pacific again, heading for the California coast. What are we thinking, you might be asking yourself, as we have pondered this same question for the past few months. But, this Fall will mark 3 years for us being out cruising, and it's time to get back, work again, studies for Kelita, and reconnect with family & friends.

Yet, spending these past few days on Kauai, anchored in Hanalei Bay, has been a peaceful way for us to prepare for this crossing. This is the kind of spot a sailor should not miss. It is the most beautiful Hawaiian bay we've seen, as it takes us back to the majestic Marquesan islands of the South Pacific, with towering green cliffs, at least a half dozen waterfalls in sight from the boat, an endless white sand beach lined with palm trees, and a beautiful right point breaking 50-100 yards long over colorful coral. Yes, an island dream. In fact, it is the home of 'Puff the Magic Dragon', who lives by the sea, in the land of Hanalei.

We'll post again when we reach CA. Mahalos to all our friends here in the islands and all the great memories, we'll never forget. We'll carry & share the Aloha spirit as we venture forth to distant destinations. Aloha Hawaii.
