Greetings from Waimea, Kauai! Tom and I arrived safely and have had Internet sporadically so I am hoping to make a quick post with some pictures of our first day here on this lovely island. A\For the first half of our trip we are staying in a small cottage, close enough to the beach that you are lulled to sleep by the slap of the waves on the shore. Very relaxing! The plane ride over though is very long and we were happy to have our feet back on the ground.
So on Day 1 we toured the Waimea Canyon area and Kokee State Park. Here is a picture of the Waimea Canyon, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.
At sunset we walked down to the beach near our cottage. Here's a picture of the sunset. Just a little cloudy.
