The Garden Isle

 2011-09-04

During my time in Hawaii, I decided to make the best of it and exercise my adventurous side to explore the island. Typically, I'm the conservative one and the Hubby is the curious, free-spirit tourist when we travel. I decided to take a lesson from his book and see what I could find.

Spouting Horn - water rushes under a lava shelf and bursts through a small opening at the surface.


Beautiful waterfall at 500 feet elevation on the way up to Waimea Canyon. The following six photos are taken at the canyon lookout.






Next stop was the Pou Hinahina Lookout...



Photo at the Ni'Ihau Lookout (it's the little island at the horizon).



Stop # 3 was the Kalalau Lookout...absolutely stunning view!


On Sunday, I decided to have dinner at The Plantations Garden Restaurant located in Poipu Beach.  Being an orchid lover, I was sure to snap a few photos!

Thanks for the comments!! I am absolutely in love with Hawaii! The Hubby and I were married on Maui, and after a little visit to the fertility rock on Molokai (Hawaiian folklore), we learned we were pregnant upon our return home from our second trip!!

Loving the blog hop!
