Today was the day we moved from HBR down to the south side of the island. We needed to clean up the condo, do laundry, and check out, which seems to always take some time.
We decided that we enjoyed the bbq boar so much that we just had to have it again, so stopped in Anahola to eat and then made another stop at Walmart in Lihue to pick up some gifts for people at home and some other things. We then headed down to the Poipu area.
For our past few trips we've been renting a condo either north or east for a few days and then staying at the Grand Hyatt for the remainder of the trip. We always really enjoy staying there and I refer to it as my "happy place". This time I was using my points to stay there and we were very pleased to find out we had been upgraded to a partial ocean view room. Some people don't like to split up the trip like that, but it has worked for us. It also gives us an opportunity to spend quality time on both sides of the island.
We walked around the grounds and the beach and enjoyed an expensive mai tai at the pool.
We didn't want to have an expensive dinner but I needed to eat something so we drove to Kukuiula and walked around. We got a few things at Living Foods and then I got a burger at Merriman's downstairs.
We headed back and had a quiet evening.
