Queen’s Bath

 

The idea of an outdoor shower is one of those notions that stays in my mind. Maybe someday I’ll finally get to put one in my own home. I’ve known people who included one in their home plans.

The Hawai`ian queens, however, took that notion one step beyond my own fantasies. Can you imagine being able to walk out your back door, down a steep incline and take your bath in a warm tropical pool? No doubt they had a few servants to scrub their backs or to help them dry off.

The photo of Queen’s Bath above is one I took on a trip to Kauai a couple years ago of such a place. For a look at the hike we made down to the pool, check out this YouTube done by someone who lives on Kauai.

A hui hou!
