Sunset over Queen’s Bath, on the north shore of Kauai. This was our first night on the island. A pretty big storm on its way but our Airbnb place was only about a mile away, so we decided to take the chance and hike out for sunset. Most of the hike was through some pretty wooded and dark areas, so we knew we would have to head back before it got too dark to see our way out. The hike was totally worth it, though. Watching sunset from here was spectacular. The sea seems calm right here but, about 100 feet away, it was blasting the shoreline with a vengeance….splashing way over our heads at times. It’s awesome watching the majesty of the ocean…enough power to destroy just about anything……yet so amazingly peaceful and captivating.
