These first pictures are of us in Waimea. It is the grand canyon of the South Pacific, as John Wayne said back in the 50's, according to the reading material over there. It was absolutely amazing, unfortunately, you will not all see the amazingness because the day we went there it was engulfed in a cloud, and we all got soaked. But in person it was truly something else. I think the canyon pictures themselves look a little bit like another world or the moon or something....kinda freaky.
I really loved this tree laying down like this....cool...
Took this while driving by a beach...I loved the colors of the two blues..the sky and ocean.
These are called the twin falls. They are the falls in Fantasy Island show....Remember that show???? Da Plane Da Plane. There was a really cool hike that you could go on that ended in swimming down at the bottom of the falls. I would have loved to go on the hike, but it was real steep, and the girls never would have made it.
These next pictures are the day we took the train ride, and toured the sugar plantation. There was some gorgeous scenery!
Little plantation cottage....didn't get the whole thing...so quaint!
Look at that sky!!! I just hardly ever see a sky this blue...especially here in Utah.

I wish that I had more pictures. Both of the girls got sick on the trip and were down for a day each, but luckily felt better quickly. This day Belle was still not up to par, and started running a fever. I have to say that I really want to go back. I want to see the Na Pali coast, and do some of the hikes. I cannot even tell you of the majesty of the NaPali Coast. The sheer black cliffs are absolutely breathtaking with the blue ocean and the white capped waves crashing onto the black rocks below! Just amazing. I wish I had a camera on the plane, and I would have taken a picture, I have really never seen anything like it. I "heard" that it was where they filmed Jurassic Park.
Well, I do have lots more pictures coming up, and of course Belle's birthday post....so until next time....I bid you farewell. (now I get to make dinner and drag my children to back to school night without hubby who is working......fun)
*I promise next week I will have my wordless wednesday and Thursday thirteen up!
