Touring Kauai

30 06 2010

Aloha everyone!

Been gone. I went holoholo (driving) on Kauai with DH and his sister Penny’s family from Pennsylvania. Two days and one night. Six people, one van.

Kalalau Valley

From Lihue Airport, around the island in a counter-clockwise direction the first day to the end of the road at Kee Beach; then clockwise to the end of the road (PuuoKila lookout) on the second day, touring the highlights most first-time visitors see.

My camera of choice for some time now is the iPhone 3G version 3.1.2. Hope you enjoy my unaltered photos and that they inspire you to create!

Fern Grotto at Wailua River

Old Kilauea Lighthouse - a national historic landmark. The surrounding area is a national wildlife refuge.

Endangered nene (native Hawaiian goose) (Branta sandvicensis)

Hanalei Valley with loi kalo (taro gardens)

Hanalei Bay and sailboats

Maniniholo Dry Cave

Kee Beach

Northwest Kauai from Kee Beach

Alekoko (Menehune Fishpond)

Waimea Canyon. I see their faces now.

In the clouds. When we arrived at the ma uka lookout to Kalalau Valley, we looked out to a sea of white, waiting patiently until the clouds lifted to reveal the valley and the surf far below (see top photo)
