Kaua’i is hard to convey with words. Photos help (a little).
Driving to the north shore.
We rented half of this cottage.
A studio space with kitchenette and lanai.
View out the back.
The island has wild roosters, hens, and chicks. Pretty much everywhere. Super fun.
A little handful of our farmers' market haul.
Anini Beach. A short hike down from our place.
Looking up at the false kamani tree.
Taking a dip in the Queen's Bath.
Exploring the lava pools.
Hiking back from Queen's bath.
On the same trail. Bran is in the stream.
We loved early mornings at Hanalei Coffee Roasters.
Coffee, cinnamon buns, and palm trees in Hanalei.
This bird came so close. Amazingly red.
Almost had a heart attack.
The reef in detail.
Hideaways Beach. My absolute favourite. Uncrowded with beautiful snorkeling.
Kauai beef for supper.
Limahuli Botanical Garden.
The Garden at Common Ground. Amazing restaurant.
Bran had a curry chicken wrap. The salad was from their garden.
I had kalua pork tacos. Most delicious taco of my life.
Secret Beach - our other favourite.
Slowly wading out.
Good sized waves for playing.
I got whopped a few times.
We stopped at a fruit stand for coconut water. Nabbed some longan fruit too!
Apple bananas and strawberry papaya.
A good combo.
I HAD to try this waffle. Papaya, apple banana, toasted coconut, coconut syrup.
Exploring roads at dusk.
Starting the Kalalau trail. Ke'e beach below. Swimming was amazing.
You can hunt wild boar on Kaua'i. This fellow was heading back with a catch.
The beginning of the Na Pali Coast.
Evening walk. Last night on the north shore.
We spent our last day on the south and west side of the island. Waimea canyon.
Pu’u o Kila Lookout. If we weren't in a giant cloud, you'd see this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nino_ary/5870964120/
Salt Pond Beach - one last view on the south shore before heading to the airport.
