Another 6 AM hike along the lava shelf to find Queen’s Bath. We saw two little waterfalls along the way.
Yay, found it!
Ready to snorkel…
no, just kidding. The waves were way too big and we were definitely deterred by the sign with the number of people who have died here.
What my postcard says it’s supposed to look like while calm.
Teddy got into the sunscreen. I think he’s telling me that he’s all ready to go out.
Rainbow over Hanalei Valley Lookout as we drove out today // Farmer’s Market // Yummy smoothie, Teddy approved!
Opaekaa Falls. The water flow is much smaller than in the postcards; due to lack of rain, I think.
There were so many peacocks at Kamokila Hawaiian Village and we followed them all around the place until one finally opened up. We didn’t do anything to make it open; rather, I think it opened up because it wanted us to take pictures and then leave it alone.
Kamokila Hawaiian Village offers various small excursions, and we had wanted to do an outrigger canoe ride along the Wailua River to Secret Falls, but since it was the day after the 4th of July, the person who would have been our guide had called in “sick.” Booo. Turns out he arrived as we were leaving but told us that it was too muddy for the two year olds to hike to the waterfall. We were on our way to the next adventure anyhow–a train ride at the Kilohana Plantation (I think a disproportionate number of places start with “K” on Kauai)
