ML and I are in vacation mode…big time!
We arrived in Kauai yesterday afternoon, (we missed our first flight…imagine that….)to one of the most gorgeous hotels that we have ever stayed in on a recomendation of my High School friend, Mike Mullins. Mike lived in Kauai for about 10 or so years. He and his wife made a list of “must do’s” for us and we are steadily making our way through the list.
One of the things that Mike forgot to mention or just didn’t think to mention is the large number of cocks on this island. Every time I turn around, I see another cock…they are every where! I have to say, however, that I have always thought of chickens being fairly stupid creatures. But these cocks seem to be pretty smart. I haven’t seen any carcasses on the road…hmmm….

In any case, one of the items that Mike told us that we had to do was go to the waterfalls. We kayaked on the Wailua river (sorry if I butchered the spelling)with our friends, Liz, James, and Cassie. The kayaking was no joke! I am already sore from doing it. (And I admit, Michael did most of it!) In any case, we then had to hike a mile plus to get to the waterfalls. This was no ordinary hike. This was through thick, nasty, mud and through rivers and streams.
We finally arrived at the waterfalls…the hike and sore shoulders were well worth it as the water falls were absolutely gorgeous! Vacation can’t get much better than this….
