Aloha to Kauai (and H50 Season 4 Premiere)

Hawaii Five O (H5O) returned on Friday night for its Season Four Premiere.  In celebration of Hawaii, I share pictures from Linda, who recently visited Kauai.  Linda gives us a tour ...

Since it seems there is rain someplace on the island a lot of the time, there are always rainbows.

Spouting Horn near Poipu on the south end of the island.

Poipu Beach...popular for snorkeling and sea turtles.

Red dirt making red water on the island....on the road to Waimea Canyon.

Waimea Canyon.

Jo Jo's Shave Ice in Waimea....directly across the street from Waimea High School. A must have is shave ice when visiting there.

The Na Pali Coast as seen from the can't drive into the Na Pali Coast as there are no roads. Helicopters and boat rides are popular for seeing it, along with hiking the Kalalau Trail into it.

Another view of the Na Pali coast as seen from the Waimea Canyon area from the Kalalau Lookout.

And one more view of Na Pali from the Pu'u O Kila Lookou.

Queen's Bath near Princeville. Snorkeling is only safe at low tide. At high tide waves will crash into the bath and could easily sweep you out to sea.

Hanalei Valley.

The Wailua River..... people kayak on it and boats take visitors to the Fern Grotto attraction via the river.

Wailua Falls.....These were seen at the beginning of the show "Fantasy Island" back in the 1980's.

Snorkel gear can be rented by the day or week for really cheap at Boss Frog's. (Also probably at Snorkel Bob's too).

Beautiful Anini Beach. 

Kilauea Lighthouse and bird sanctuary.

Nene (Hawaiian Goose) that we saw at the lighthouse. We saw several of them here.

Grilled Banana.....I am not adventurous when it comes to eating new things, so it took me a while to take a bite out of it. It was delicious!

Mahalo, Linda, for sharing your gorgeous photos!
