1: long drive long flight long day(s) & NO kids Vacation Bliss
2: Spouting Horn
3: Home Sweet Home (for a week)!
4: Queen's Bath
5: Hawaiian Shaved Ice YUMMY-LICIOUS!
7: Wailua Falls This was our first "ADVENTURE" off the beaten path. We hiked down a steep, muddy slope and immersed ourselves in the muddy water at the bottom of the falls. There were ropes along the hillside to make the hike possible. At the bottom, the water spray from the falls soaked our cameras and clothes. Too bad, we didn't take a picture of Shayne climbing behind the falls - that guy is DARING!
8: Kipu Falls
9: Only Shayne dared to do the rope swing
10: Waimea Canyon | the pictures can't show the grandeur
12: Na Pali Coast We took a rafting adventure and loved it! Dolphins, turtles, waterfalls, and majestic terrain.
13: We stopped for lunch at a private beach. There, we enjoyed seeing Noni trees (they stink), a turtle covered beach, and the ruins of an old fishing town built out of stones..
14: Wailua River & Valley | Puka Dogs RULE!
15: 'Opaeaka'a Falls
16: Biking on the Coast Tandem biking is not as easy as it looks! There were a few moments of tension and we won't mention any names.
17: We snorkeled everyday. Ramen Noodles is a great fish food! | Snuba It wasn't all we hoped for, but we still had fun.
18: ...an early sunrise
19: Kalalau Trail along Na Pali Coast
20: our view from the trail
21: Rach's Henna Tattoo (she's such a rebel)
22: Secret Beach
23: It's our last day on Kaua'i. We find the "Secret Beach" and we are mesmerized by the waves
