This May we went to Kauai. After we got home we talked about people who love Hawaii. We couldn't help but say, well you love Hawaii but we love Kauai. It was amazing and great and awesome and most of all B. E. A. utiful!
We were invited to come by the most friendly, amazing, and wonderful people on the planet. And not to mention their adorable perfect baby. How are we so lucky to get to go to paradise with these amazing people you ask? I still don't know.
On the way to Queen's Bath we saw this awesome water fall. Of course we stopped and snapped a million pictures while the natives walked by like it was NBD. I would pay big money to see them in the desert taking a picture next to a Saguaro.
The next hike we went on took a little convincing to get me on. Considering my last hiking adventure. The view was well worth it.
I would have been embarrassed how I looked on the hike, but you should have seen the men that popped out from off the trail. They looked like Hawaiian hobo's not even wearing shoes!
The destination was amazing. A fresh water river that ran into the ocean. Plus the bonus spring on the side of the mountain. Hello, heaven.
I know Coconut water is the hugest health craze. I would never be one to admit that I am part of anything health or craze, but it was WAY better than any stinkin' thing found at Costco. After going on a hike, in which we didn't bring enough water nothing tasted better.
On the East side of the island there are these amazing canyons that can only be accessed by a 14 day hike or by boat. I picked the boat.
They filmed a lot of the movie Jurassic Park here. When I was younger I wasn't old enough to watch the movie. We watched in Kauai one of the nights we were their and it was amazing! We were lucky enough to go zip-lining on the private property where the movie was filmed it was gorgeous.
We also went to "The Grand Canyon of The Pacific". Let's just say it was The Grand Canyon except green. We just stood there and stared.
The whole time we were their Fletcher wanted pick a coconut from a tree. He finally did on the last day. It was a little too ripe for him.
