Wonderful images. I especially like the one of your gorgeous wife, and the one of you laying face down in the sand.

Great shots! Now you know why I live here on Kauai. Lumahai is such a fantastic beach. At least outside of the winter it is. In winter, those rocks you were standing on are often under 5 feet of water as huge waves come crashing across. That's what usually kills people there.

Oh and here is a little piece of trivia for you. The beach everyone calls Lumahai is not actually Lumahai beach. It is actually called Kahalahala, and the far end of the beach is called Lumahai. As you saw, it's not really a marked spot. Just one of those you either read about in guide books or by chance you see cars there. It used to be a full on locals beach. Then all the tourists and everyone started showing up after it got published in the Ultimate Guidebook. That is when the name changed. The name Lumahai actually means dangerous waters in Hawaiian. So people started calling Kahalahala Lumahai to get people to stop coming, since the waters were dangerous. But since very few people speak Hawaiian, they didn't know and the guidebook said it was a great spot. So that is how that beach got two names.
