  • While visiting Kauai I was told (by my friend and now wife) of a private, untouched beach called Secrets that was tucked away in a beautiful lagoon.

    Sadly, when we arrived, we discovered that Secrets had been trashed by the few who were privy to the lagoon.

    But maybe it wasn't people who trashed the lagoon. Maybe there was another mysterious explanation.

    After eating our picnic lunch I realized both of my sandals were missing. We didn't see another person on the beach the entire time. We searched the entire beach, but they just disappeared.

    There was enough trash on the beach, however, to create another pair of sandals, so I went ahead and helped clean up the beach by recycling.

    I am still trying to figure out what the big secret is.
