Kauai, Hawaii Days 6 & 7

Yep, if you're keeping track, I skipped day 5.  Well to be fair there have been several days spent just lazing around by the pool.  We've also discovered several fun shopping places that have taken up some time.  But now on to the fun stuff!  Yesterday we drove to the north side of the island.  First we stopped at the Kilauea Lighthouse.  It couldn't be more perfect.

Off we went to Hanalei beach and stopped for a few drinks at the St. Regis in Princeville. We continue to agree that the Ko'a Kea Hotel and Resort was the best possible choice.  Though the beach at Hanalei is pretty amazing.

We had a leisurely drive back to the south side, stopping at an amazing burger place to avoid some of the traffic.   

That brings us to today.  Our last full day of vacation.  Today started out lazy and ended with an amazing boat ride up the coast.  You may remember the Na Pali coast from the helicopter tour, but you didn't quite see it like this.  And I apologize in advance for the many sunset photos.  It was so lovely to be out on the boat for hours.  I can't recommend doing this enough!

Tomorrow there won't be much more.  Breakfast at a new favorite place and the slow return to the airport.  Never thought I'd say this, but I can't wait to get back.  Until next time!

Kauai, Hawaii Day 4

As promised, I have come back to upload photos of the helicopter tour we took today.  R & I ended up with a 75 minute flight from Lihue.  I have to say our pilot was pretty great.  We had a rocking soundtrack for the whole tour.  Lots of great 70's music to make you feel like you belonged up in the air!  We covered "Jurassic" Falls, to the theme song from Jurassic Park of course.  We flew across the island and then up the Na Pali coast.  So many waterfalls!  So here it is... the massive grouping of photos from this amazing flight.  The last two photos are taken from the ground near the waterfall you can see in the two photos before.  Yep, we hadn't had enough of waterfalls!
