Kauai

Simple and beautiful

Kauai is a lovely island, and, as you can see from some of the photos, is filled with colorful blooms and lush vegetation. We are docked in Nawiliwili Harbor (pronounced nah-WILLY-WILLY) (doesn't that sound cool?), and just got back from a shore excursion. We took a tour bus to Waimea Canyon, which Mark Twain dubbed "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific".

We've never been to the Grand Canyon, so we can't do a proper comparison, but we were suitably impressed today by the grandeur of this place - colorful strata of lava rock in this vast canyon in the uplands of Kauai island.

We just got back not long ago - it's 2:15 here, and there's a beach near the ship, so.....seeya later!

Glad you're where you are. Did you hear about the tornado on Oahu yesterday? Very rare. Ripped through a golf course pulling clubs right out of their bags. Stay safe. Beautiful pics. Judy and John
