We decided to walk down and check out Pu'u Poa beach in front of the St Regis. It was very calm and quite pretty.
We're going to take our snorkel gear down this morning and check out the reef. After our trek back up the hill (you won't gain weight staying here, everywhere you go on these grounds requires some kind of steep walk lol) we rested by the pool for a second. HBR has this neat Adopt an Orchid program where you purchase an orchid then the gardeners help you plant it exactly where you want. There's some very pretty ones.
We had a tee time scheduled at 1:09 at the Makai course. As guests at HBR we were able to golf for 119 each after 1:00 because we had two golfers in our party. We went early to have some lunch and were actually able to get out early too because they weren't busy. Here's some of the better photos of the gorgeous course.
It was an enjoyable round (except for my putting on the back 9) and I'd recommend the course. If you are a non golfer they have a sunset golf cart tour you can take to enjoy the views. We got back and after a dip in the pool, we did up some Kauai shrimp with pasta salad and enjoyed another spectacular north shore sunset from our lanai.
So ends another day. Not sure of our plans today. Snorkel at Pu'u Poa and maybe check out some other beaches.
