    I do t think we had permits. Can't recall. And we set up camp on the bluff a few miles from the final beach.

    And yes, lots of folks living up there. We met one memes Java Joe. He was a character.

    Bingo. Pier. I was there when the outer bay was 40' faces. Right next to the pier was junky, but not even head high. Pine Trees was pure death close outs.

    Kauai is truly a great place. I suggest a few things for your next trip. If you surfed Pine Trees (beach break in the middle of the bay) then you would be fine out on reefs. Maybe you were surfing...

    Ah, yes, ABC. I would not doubt that my memory has mixed the two stores into one store. It has been well over a decade. Need to get back.

    I imagine those poles sold at the tourist grocery that also has a bunch of boxes of chocolate coated macadamia. Can't remember the name of the place, but it reminded me of a Hawaiian Trader Joes for...

    We only stayed in state park campgrounds. But there is one at Tunnels. Or at least was one ten years ago. That was generally where we camped when surfing Hanalei. If we had to to move, we went east...
