Kauai 3.13.10

Being 6 hours behind here in Hawaii left me awake rather early on our first morning. I was able to catch a lovely sunrise at the beach of the Hilton Kauai we were staying at just for the one night. Later in the morning we headed to the house we will be staying at for the week near Lawai Beach. On the way we stopped at Wailua Falls. We were pressed for time so had to do a Chevy Chase like moment from Vacation, gawking at the falls rather quickly before heading out. The falls were quite impressive. State officials originally pegged the height at around 80 feet. It’s deceptive because the vista you are at is above the falls. Some locals were convinced the falls were much higher, so they did their own measurements (twice to be sure) and found the falls to be approximately 170 feet. That is higher than Niagra Falls, but Niagra has a heck of a lot more water going over it.

I was up early the next morning, again, and within the first hour I saw two rainbows, including the double rainbow in the last shot below.

  1. Gorgeous! I loved Hawaii and it looks like you are having so much fun! The time change meant we were up for sunrises as well–I think it’s most definitely worth it! Have fun!!
