A few weeks ago, while still in Hawaii, Casey and I hopped over to Kauai for four days. The last time I was there was a few years back and we were both ready for some tropical nature. We spent our first day on the west side at a secluded beach with long stretches of sand and tall lava rock cliffs behind us. After leaving the beach, we basically drove around the island to get to our camp grounds on the north shore.
The best part of the day was, hands down, our visit to Queens Bath.
The next day, we headed for Waimea Canyon. It was mostly a drive up and around the canyon, but we got out for a good two hour hike.
Our last day took us to Wailua river. With the morning rooster, we were ready for a day of kayaking.
We jumped into out double kayak and paddled up the smooth, calm Wailua river. I was excited since this was the first time I have kayaked and always wanted to. It was, at first, a lot more physical than I thought. But soon enough I got the hang of thing and we easily made our way to a trail.
The trail was just over a mile in and took us through mud, decaying foliage and slippery rocks.
Finally, I'm all caught up and can post in real time (more or less). Not sure how frequently posts will be now that I'm back in the city, but hopefully the adventures will be frequent enough to keep posting regularly.
