On one of our first bike rides into town, I spied Kauai Athletic Club, less than one flat mile from the dinghy dock and decided to check it out. They had a senior membership plan and no long-term contract.

The path to KAC
Seems simple, but on a boat this can be a challenge. My boat choices are no shower at all until I can't stand myselft or a solar shower in the cockpit if I remember to fill the bag and let it sit in the sun for a few hours. And wait until after dark so as not to shock and dismay kayakers, fishermen, and anyone else passing by. I have also "showered" by heating water on the stove and pouring it into bicycle-type water bottles. In Lihue, this was the only onshore choice in the marina: outdoors, no curtain, cold water only. Yuck. In Hilo, we were lucky because we could ride to a nearby public pool and shower in the locker rooms.
