A Visit to Kilauea Lighthouse in Kaua’i, Hawaii

A Visit to Kilauea Lighthouse in Kaua’i, Hawaii

 

We spent an amazing 5 days in Kaua’i for my birthday in early November – I am still enjoying looking at the photos.

 

Pt. Reyes lighthouse north of San Francisco CAComing from New England, I am a big lighthouse fan. After all they are all over the place there, particularly in Maine and on Cape Cod.

 

Lighthouses are not so common here on the Left Coast, but we enjoyed a visit to Point Reyes north of San Francisco a couple of years ago to see that lighthouse (photo to the right).

 

It is amazing terrain with incredible views in all directions, and the drive there through Marin County is well worth the trip if you ever get the chance.

 

We were even able to see San Francisco, a distance of about 50 miles I think.

 

We could see the KILAUEA LIGHTHOUSE from our hotel room in Princeville, Kaua’i, about 5 miles I would guess across the ocean. It was great fun to visit and see it up close, and enjoy all the bird life at the wildlife refuge, including the national bird, the Nene (looks like a Canadian goose).
