My friend Ellen and I enjoyed exploring Moloa`a Bay Ranch Costal Trail and tried our best to get to Kaakaanui Cove. A lovely day watching turtles and seabirds under Kauai's beautiful blue sky--
Earth Day at it's best!!
|Moloa`a Beach is also know as the location where they filmed the pilot for Gilligan's Island.|
"Now this is a tale of our castaways"
|sign says it all...|
|Here we go...|
|Ellen blazing the trail.|
|a look at Kaakaaui Cove--so close yet so far...Cove is just around the corner,|
lots of boulder hopping and a very steep descent from this cliff.
|Ellen using the designated trail...land owner erected this fence,|
preventing us from easy access to Kaakaanui Cove.
|this is what happens to barbed wire in salty air conditions|
|Can't really see them, but there were about a dozen green sea |
turtles in the water doing whatever sea turtles do!!

|On the way home I stopped at this "Tiny Home Bakery" just two blocks from|
the beach for some yummy bread to go with tonight's lasagna.
