Benchmarking in paradise...aahhh!

 

Visited this interesting benchmark, TU1964,while vacationing on Kauai. The orignal drill hole in the red brick

pier dates from 1910 -- making it a 93 year old

benchmark -- my oldest find to date!

Also found 4 geocaches. Geocaching and benchmarking are nice additions to a vacation as they lead to interesting places that I would not otherwise see.

Seeing those pictures brings back some wounderful memories...My Dad was in charge of installing an under water test range off of Barking Sands, at the other end of the main road aroud Kauai in 1967, and brought my Mom and me out for the summer. How great it was to be there ...16 years old with a car and lots of free time!! Hanilai was my favorite place to go to...there is a little beach at the very end of the road, just before the cliffs start, that was truely beautiful. Thanks for the memories, and glad you gained some, too.
