Unfortunately, reading on the Kindle app on the iPad in direct sun is really quite challenging. I gave up after the first day. Thankfully our condo has a library so I was able to find a (pretty terrible) romance novel I hadn't read yet to keep me occupied. I felt so old school.
I give Poipu a lot of crap (see above), but this beach was stellar, not terribly crowded, and the Kiahuna Plantation was a beautiful condo resort. Alas, not a timeshare so we can't ever exchange into it, but I wouldn't mind renting one of the remodeled units that have an ocean view. Given the cost differential between an ocean view room at the Sheraton next door, and these condos, it's a much better deal.
We left the beach around 4:30 p.m. so that we could get back to Princeville for dinner at 8 p.m. The drive home was crazy - the sky was constantly filled with one rainbow or another. A couple of times there were full double rainbows across the ocean. Stunning.
Before going to dinner we sat out on the cliff edge again to watch our final sunset of the trip. I also got eaten by mosquitos again ... just when the last set of bites had stopped itching.
It was very relaxing to sit there and watch the sun set behind Bali Hai. We also saw a cruise ship come around the bend with all of it's lights lit up - I imagine the folks on board were captivated by the sunset. Most people like the skies to be crystal clear when the sun goes down, but I love when there are some moody clouds in the sky because it gives the scene depth and throws a bunch of different colors.
