While visiting Kauai we spent about half a day exploring the different lookout points of Waimea Canyon. There were such beautiful views of mountains and ocean! The only downside (for me) was getting a little car sick on the winding elevation climb to about 5,000 feet. My husband had a BLAST weaving our compact rental car up the sharp curves. Those two things might have been connected…
This gal was selling fresh fruit and drinks near the lookout. It only took a few minutes to get her attention away from the phone to fetch us some fresh cut pineapple (which was yummy and comparably priced to buying fresh cut fruit at the grocery store in Hawaii).
Because he saw this sign he thought he had SEEN THE NENE and told all his friends at school how he saw nene, turtles, and sharks. (We did actually see a flock of nene birds near our cabin, but since they are endangered we kept our distance).
