After breakfast and showers, we headed up north to the Hanalei Colony Resort, where we walked on the beautiful beach for awhile. Lots of waves here but beautiful colors. I took some pictures, then we headed to the spa onsite called Hanalei Day Spa, where we got massages. Very good massages for both and afterwards we went to the onsite restaurant, Mediterranean Gourmet. I've heard great things about this restaurant and have been wanting to try it for a long time. They also have several offerings that are gluten free, so I can actually eat more than a salad. We both ordered fish lettuce wraps that had ono in them and had hummus, taboulleh, and babaganoush. We both really enjoyed our food and while the service was great, the food took quite awhile to arrive.
After lunch, we went for a drive to the end of the road, and noticed that at Ke'e the beach was closed for swimming/snorkeling due to the surf.
We made another stop at Paradice for more shave ice and headed home for a rest and down time.
In the evening, we headed to the St. Regis to meet up with one of Tracy's coworkers and her husband who also were on the island. We went a little early to watch the sunset and walk around. It's a beautiful property and I hope to stay there some day, even if for one night, just to see what it's like.
We met the couple in the bar and had a few drinks and pupus, and while it was pretty darn expensive, the food (rice cracker ahi and barbeque beef skewers) was amazing. The mai tais weren't bad either.,.
