Aloha Gentle Readers,
TWC is stuck here in So Cal's notorious June Gloom and my mind's wandered off to visions of bare feet, hot sun, sticky sand, and warm azure water that is always a bit saltier than the mainland beaches.
This reprise of a post from last June is dedicated to Faithful Reader Stephen R, who also enjoys a nice sunset.
After 8 plus hours we drag them kids away, kicking and screaming.
Napili Beach is alive with sounds that are something akin to a muffled version of the screams and mechanical clanks of a theme park thrill ride soothed by crashing surf and then layered with uninhibited, belly-aching laughter of children unable to contain their sheer joy. Taken together, it's musical. Perhaps a cross between a distant wind chime and Asian-influenced new age music. But not quite.
The beach is steep and then flattens out underwater so the kids can ride the surf up the beach and then it sucks them back down in a continuous cycle sort of like one of those carnival pirate ship rides.This is a don't-miss beach on an island of great beaches.
