We’ve been exploring the island of Kauai over the last couple of days. The most breathtaking scenery so far was at Waimea Canyon. After a snaking our way up a narrow road to 3500 feet we were treated to the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” … the photos don’t really do it justice.
Did the locals thing today and parked on the beach at Hanalei (where Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea). This beach has become our favourite. The weather changed every 20 minutes … rain – sun. The surf was really good but it was a long paddle out to the reef. There was only one other guy out so there were plenty of waves. Cathy hired her own SUP today and had a great time paddling around the bay.
We are enjoying the local seafood and, of course, the tasty cocktails.
Looking forward to the helicopter tour tomorrow.
