Day 6 in Hawaii

Our first day in the northern part of Kauai was full of fun! We started by hiking down to the beach at the bottom of the cliff we were staying on.

The sand here was like sesame seeds. It stuck you everything. Felt very strange!

So way out on the point is the Kilauea Lighthouse. It's part of a Wildlife Refuge. Mostly birds.

This is a frigate. They kind of look like pterodactyls. They said they ride on currents and can't really take off unless they are very high up.

They were landing on this island right in front of the lighthouse. And out a little farther from the island we saw several whales surfacing in the water. No pictures unfortunately.

The lighthouse close up!

To the right of the lighthouse was this cliff that stuck out. Can you see the white dots. Those are nesting red-footed boobies. They were all over the cliff.

And the day wasn't complete without the endangered Hawaiian NeNe paying us a visit at our lanai.
They look like geese.
One last picture at the lighthouse.

Have a wonderful Wednesday! Hope you enjoy the pictures!
