I retraced my steps from yesterday to get to Lydgate State Park.  It's a recommended beach in my guidebook but I found it so-so.  Not much surf this Thanksgiving Day. 

About 2pm, I started to drift back south to a shopping area nearby.  It was pretty dead but some stores were closed due to the holiday.  I discovered other Islanders come to Kauai for a getaway, even a couple from the wetter northern coast of this island came for a few days.  I thought about a lunch at Bubba's Burgers, but the "Fresh Food Sucks" sign outside resulted in a 180 degree turn, smartly too.  No lunch. 

I'd heard a good place to visit was down the road by the botanical garden so that was good for an hour, then a stop at Baby Beach for a bit of sand time with my book.  It's a nice curving beach about 175 yds long where the water is protected by a reef making it a good spot for snorkelers  and ankle-biters.

I anticipate much the same rushing about tomorrow...  I have been enjoying the early morning star-gazings.  I'll try to get a photo tonight!
