After boiling in the hot sun, we went for a leisurely turn down the Hyatt's winding lazy river pool. Twice. Then we played in their salt water lagoon and got a Luau Pig Cuban sandwich for lunch. The Hyatt remains one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.
After our day at the Hyatt, we went to Lihue and picked up our rental car. The lady would stop at nothing to upgrade us to a convertible. "You're on your honeymoon, right?" "No." "But you're here by yourselves, so it's like your honeymoon." "No, I'm with my in-laws." "But you have your own car, so it's like a honeymoon." Alas, we walked away with our sensible sedan.
Then Mike and I drove ourselves to our first shave ice at Old Koloa Town. We ate it like ravenous monkeys. Then we spent a couple of hours reading at the pool and reading in the pool.
Then we went for dinner at a new place called Merriman's in Poipu, which strives to be completely local in the food it serves. It was one of those restaurants that gives you smaller portions and is very expensive, but is actually worth the hype. Delicious food.
