Kauai Photos

We visited alot of wonderful places in Kauai.  One of the things we did on the first day was take a one hour airplane tour.  This was actually my Dad's idea and to be honest, I was not exactly convinced it was something we needed to do.  All I could think of was a plane crash.

A couple weeks before the trip, I booked the airplane tour and tried to keep a positive attitude.  Here we are right before we took off!

Somehow- by luck... I ended up sitting next to the pilot (we were assigned seats based on weight)... lucky me!  Not!  My husband glared at me when the Pilot told me to sit in the seat next to him.  I must say I had the best view but I was a nervous wreck the whole time because all of the controls and pedals in front of me and at my feet where live.

Here are some of the photos I took with my phone... the window glare shows but you get the gist of how gorgeous it was. 
Touring the island by air on the first day helped us formulate a list of the places we wanted to visit during the week.

Later on during the week,, we went to a many of the places we saw from the air.  Here are a few of the favorite spots.

The Kikauea Point Lighthouse
 Waimea Canyon, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific
 Opaekaa Falls
Kalihiwai Beach
It really was a wonderful trip. 

Micaela could not get enough of the beach, she especially loved writing in the sand.  Thanks for scrolling down this far.
