Waimea and the south side

The next morning we saw Kauai by helicopter (I’ll post those pictures later).  “We” did not include Peter and the twins, so we drove all the way up Waimea Canyon so they could also see the amazing “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”

In the meantime, everyone else golfed, and we met up afterwards to explore the area around Hanapepe.

Salt Pond Beach, where they still evaporate sea water to get salt the old-fashioned way

Glass Beach, where the waves have pounded pieces of glass from the nearby dump into tiny bits of sea glass…if only I could post a video of some of us collecting the “sand”

Poipu, where a gecko in the light fixture kept the twins amused while we went shopping.  You’ll have to imagine how they said “gecko” in their cute voices.
