Our last full day in Kauai began for me at 5 am when I quietly left the house to greet the dawn at the nearby Shipwreck Cove. After I returned, the family got up and we took an overall one hour drive to the Western side of the island where one of the most spectacular beaches can be found at the start of the Na Poli coast in Polihale State Park. The thing about the Hawaiian islands is that everyone can be Ansel Adams with an iPhone. It is virtually impossible to take a big shot on Kauai.
At dawn I walked along on the nearby cliffs of the Shipwreck Cove as the sun rose and transformed everything into a golden glow and then a vivid pink. I later found a solitary man who was fishing over the high cliff with one of the longest fishing lines I have ever seen. The dawn was so enchanting that I hope to do it again before we head for the airport in the morning.
The next stop was something that was irresistible after the trip with Captain Andy. As we worked up the Na Poli coast, the crew pointed out a beach that ran for a few miles to the start of the Na Poli coast. I had to see the Polihale beach up close.
This trip is not for people with sensitive backs or vulnerable vehicles. For almost 5 miles, you have to drive on a gravel and then a dirt road with huge bumps and holes. There were already two trucks with flat tires and two other vehicles were stuck at the end in the sand. We moved in our minivan at a 10 mile an hour space. The difficult pays off in the end with one of the most pristine and unique beaches in the world. The problem is that there is a dangerous under current as well as other perils. It is also worth noting that the sand at this beach is super soft and you sink a foot in some places. It makes for a very restful day, but the sand retains a great deal of heat. You should wear flip flops to get to the water from your car. We stayed very close to the beach and loved it. There were relatively few people on the beach.
I walked a couple miles down the beach to the point where the Na Poli coast begins. It is amazing to swim with the awesome mountains just off the beach. I know of no other beach with such a unique mix of soft sand, towering cliffs, and seclusion.
On our way home we stopped at Island Taco in Waimea which we terrific, though again surprisingly expensive like so much else on this island. Unfortunately, we went to Waimea Beach to see its famous black sand only to find that it was closed due to bacteria contamination. The stench was overwhelming. We did not want to end our wonderful time on Kauai with that memory of Waimea beach so we went back to Salt Pond beach for some late day body surfing.
It was an incredible day though the kids will have some sunburns to take home as memories in the morning.

Those most certainly are beautiful pictures. Unfortunately I myself was unable to take a vacation after being defrauded by the Pierce county Washington State Judiciary. Having them cover up the multiple appearances by my ex-wife’s unlicensed attorney Gregory E. Grahn who illegally with held my quit claim deed release to my custom built lake front home of the last 32 years, forced the loss of my new affordable mortgage loan, my home into default, and me finally into a un-needed and unwanted forced filing of bankruptsy. Violation of USC title 18 chap .9 sec. 3057 sub sec. 152-154 Bankruptcy fraud. Then after immediately notifying the the superior court clerk by filing contempt of court motion, them a emergency motion once again notifying the court about Grahn embezzling another $1500.00 from my money held in the attorneys Trust account and forcing this tremendous credit destroying travesty upon me , jeopardizing the kids and my home. But even though I have stamped time and date copies of these motions being filed in the Superior Court, the Clerk never placed them on docket to be heard in front of one of their criminally corrupt judges. Because if they would have, the truth about the unlicensed attorney(which at the time I knew nothing about because the superior Court kept that a secret) defrauding me and committing Fraud upon the Court , even after the Wa. State Bar and the Supreme Court had notified the Superior court telling them if Grahn attemped to continue to practice law unlicensed , to stop him. But the Superior court never did in my Case, nor as they were suppose to, did they ever dismiss the Case for being infected with fraud. Instead the Superior Court chose to defraud me, escape their liability for their unprofessional negligence allowing the unlicensed practice of law, then committed Federal mail fraud by sending out fraudulent Null & void Court orders in USPS passing them off as legal court orders. So I had no other choice in order to try and stop the illegal forced foreclosure and filing of bankruptcy by Grahn with holding the deed release to my home in contempt of court, I was forced to file B.R. having the very first documents I filed in B.R. Court be notice to the Judge Snyder, the Clerk,, the attorney for the mortgage Comp. Brian Lynch,(now B.R. Judge Lynch) the U.S. Trustee and the David M. Howe Trustee notifying them all about Grahn forcing me to B.R. and the Superior court never placing my filed motion for contempt of court, or my emergency motion to save my good hard earned credit and the family home from this forced filing of B.R. . None of these fellow members of the Bar Assoc. ever responded to this filed with the clerk notice about me being illegally forced to B.R. by the Illegal forced loss of my new mortgage loan and the superior court allowing Grahn to do this and never placing my filed motions on court Docket. They all covered for Grahn and the Criminally Corrupt Pierce county Wa. State Superior court. Even though all of my documents were correct, filed with the B.r. court and my case was paid and up to date, the Superior Court went ahead without jurisdiction and held a mock auction for my home that was never announced to the public for attendance by the public and sold my home to a insider who is the only one who attended this auction for a prime custom built lakefront chalet style home conservatively appraised at $435,000.00. With the insider already having a pre drafted cashiers check made out before this auction even started for the un real amount of $100,001.00 (which would not even pay for the bare property)and purchased my home at this mock auction. I went back to the B.R. Court and filed documents concerning this illegal theft, criminal conversion of my home without jurisdiction. The Court went and re-assigned my case to now Judge Lynch, who was the attorney for the mortgage company who I had already notified about Grahn and the Superior court who never even responded to my notice. I immediately filed documents for his recuse from the Case for conflict of interest. Judge Lynch refused to disqualify himself from the case for 4 more months. the Official prescribed course of action for violation of USC Title 18 chap.9 Section 3057 reads any officer of the court, any attorney who with holds any pertinent document belonging to the estate of the debtor has committed a crime against the United States Punishable with up to 5 years in the federal Penitentiary, and a $30,000.00 fine. Any Judge or Magistrate, or any mayor of a city or town not only has the authority , but the duty to report this to the U.S. Attorney and recommend a Grand Jury investigation. So I ask Judge Lynch while he was on the Stand why he himself or Judge Snyder never took Official action when I notified them via filed documents with the clerks office about violation of the 3057 Law? Judge Lynch replied by telling me that the B.R. Court was only a court of limited jurisdiction, so they didn’t think that they had the authority to report this to the U.S. Attorneyes cannot or recommend a Grand Jury Investigation.(No Kidding, he should be selling old worn out taxi’s to the public passing them off as one owner low mileage used cars) I replied by saying, let me get this straight, you didn’t think you had authority? Don’t you know? Authority to take Official Action on written and filed with the clerk of the court, notice of violation of a B.R. law in a B.R. Case in a B.R. Court because you are only a B.R. judge???? His ears turned red and he mumbled something, then jumped up and quickly walked(practically ran) into his chambers and never came back out. Later I received papers from the B.R. court saying that Judge Lynch had dismissed my case due to the Trustee claiming that all of my B.R. forms were either blank or just had scribble on them! Which had already been determined by the Clerks office that it was just their own scanner setting had been adjusted to light to adequately scan my documents and the assistant clerk had already verified this placing this on docket #56 for judge Lynch to see for himself. Did not matter, Judge Lynch still dismissed my case with prejudice , assigned my adversary Case to Judge Snyder to rule on. Which not only violated B.R. court rule 10(judges cannot assign Cases to each other) with Judge Snyder listed as the main defendant in that Adversary Case already. Did not matter , Judge Snyder still Ruled on that Case , dismissing HIMSELF!! It had also been noted that after judge Lynch did this totally illegal unethical move of assigning my case himself to the main defendant to Rule upon himself, he then finally recused himself from the Case. For which the void Judgement doctrine clearly states that when a Judge recuses him/her self from a Case, that it makes all of their Orders and rulings Null & Void, having no legal effect as if they never were. That the case must be provided a new unbiased judge in order for due process of Law to be furnished to the Case. It also says that any or all other ruling or orders produced from any other court are also null & void having no legal effect until a new unbiased judge is provided for the B.R. Case and it is allowed to finish. The B.R. court never provided me with a new unbiased judge ever. Both State and Federal Law requires a jury be assigned to all contested Real Estate proceedings. I had already filed several motions in B.R. court for a jury which all had been just ignored. I went to the Superior court Clerks office to file a Wa. State Superior court jury Demand. The Clerk refused to file my Jury Demand, lying to me telling me that it had to be a special Pierce county only Jury demand form. I checked online and there is no such thing as a Pierce county only Jury Demand form. So I created one for them and went back to the Clerks Office the following day with both my Washington State Superior court Jury Demand Form and my created P.C. only Jury demand form and demanded that they file both of them for which I have my copies of that are also stamped. At this same time, I prepaid for a 6 person jury that I was given a printed receipt for with the Case number clearly printed on that receipt. When I went to court, there was no jury, not even a real judge, the clerk had assigned the Case to a Court commissioner Johnson to do this illegal dirty work for the Judiciary. Having this be improper venue which also produces nothing more than Null & Void Orders and Rulings. Which due not require the court to void them, they are simply void period , having no legal standing, no jurisdiction or legal effect. I told Commissioner Johnson that this was improper venue and that he nor this court had any jurisdiction in this matter what so ever. He replied that this was a Federal Law and that he was unfamiliar with Federal Law . Which he is required to be totally familiar with Federal Law and recognize the Federal supremacy law. Did not matter, Commissioner Johnson was determined to do this illegal dirty work retaliation for the criminally corrupt judiciary and illegally transfer title and ownership to my home so as to injure me catastrophically to such a degree, that I would be unable to continue. Banking on the no where or no one to turn to scenario for me to just be screwed with this fraudulent Criminal RICO organized crime and the theft of , the criminal conversion of my home of the prior 32 years. It was not my fault that the attorney was unlicensed, it was not my fault that the Superior court was unprofessionally negligent, I was just simply getting a divorce from my wife, not my credit, my career, my home and everything I owned. Just my wife. but this cover up , these Criminal RICO Public Corrupt criminals & creeps were determined to remain unaccountable and make me the patsy for there screw ups and illegal activity. I left this proceeding in shock, and within just a couple weeks the Pierce County sheriffs Dept sent out 12 heavily armed sheriffs to my home complete with a signed order giving them the right to use deadly force to remove me from my own home and property!! A fraudulently obtained court order that had further felony intent written all over it. They broke into the property through the gate at the driveway, broke into the home, my separate office building, into the 5 car garage and shop, broke into all of my locked vehicles and stole them from private property, including my boats, trailers, tractor, and took them to a secret location and gave me a paper dated from 2 years before this date with a false address on it demanding cash only ransom be paid for the return of all my vehicles , boats etc. Then the sheriff in charge of this criminal armed robbery told me that I had to leave the entire area , that if I was even seen in the neighborhood of my home, that I would be arrested and taken into custody. The street was lined with sheriff cars everywhere, there were 4 big semi truck moving trailers there parked out in the street. As soon as the movers attempted to take my belongings, they were told by the insider /buyer that they had to leave and reschedule a date to come back and move my belongings. The sheriffs dept posted a deputy across the street from my home for 2 days 24 hrs a day. That sheriff sat their in his patrol car at the public’s expense and watched the insider Edward Voss and his associates haul truck load after truck load of my prized possessions, registered Art work, family heirlooms , everything I owned out of my driveway and rob me for all of it. So I was unable to take a vacation this year, focusing on just survival only.
did Turley try the “maui wowee” or the “kona gold?”
I thought that Shipwreck Cove was in the Caribbean.
Wow, that looks like the most pristine beach ever!
Pat my wife melted her flip flops in that sand, was the sugar cane still there? Glad to see you are enjoying family. Still can’t thank you and Dan for all your work on our behalf. (Oak Ridger)
Happy Trails, JT. Good to see some people in the pics. 🙂
What a thrilling walk at dawn that must have been. Your photo of sunrise is gorgeous and brings to mind a favorite quote of my mother’s:
” Never keep the curtains drawn, lest you miss some glory of the sky.”
Safe travels tomorrow, Professor, and many thanks for the photos and travel notes.
