N is for a Nawiliwili Name Poem

F.Y.I. I am taking part in the A to Z Challenge.  Stop by tomorrow and check out my Ode to the letter O.

Natural channel for the large ships        
At the south end of Hawaii Route 51   
West is Niumalu Beach Park.              
Is the name of the harbor not the town 
Located at the mouth of the Hule'ia  Stream 
Island of Kauai 
Waialeale Mt. is considered the wettest place on Earth
Is named after the indigenous Wiliwili trees 
Lihue, the main town on Kauai.

There's not much you can say about a port except that ships dock there. This port is the port for Kauai which is the only reason I have even heard of Nawiliwili. However, I needed an N for the A to Z Challenge, not a K, so Nawiliwili fit the bill. Plus, I LOVE the sound of it, Nawiliwili, one of the few Hawaiian words I can pronounce.

LOL. You did a great post - that's an imaginative way of doing an "N" post
