After ziplining we headed North to do some sight-seeing and have a little more relaxed day. Now - My Dad says that he came to the islands to see me; and he says that he had a music conference to attend; but I think the real reason he came was to get a piece of Haupia up in Hanalei! After we enjoyed our mid-day desserts (and I think he snitched some of mine!) we headed to Turtle Cove and ended up seeing about a dozen turtles or so bounding in the waves. They were awesome! We walked over to Queen’s Bath but it was way too crowded. We enjoyed sitting and watching the turtles for awhile and then we headed off to check out the St. Regis hotel.
We walked around the incredible grounds and the huge lobby just staring and marveling at how beautiful it all was. Side note, rooms here start at $650 a night!
There are two waterfalls on the side of the road – the fairly busy main highway – that I have wanted to photograph since I’ve been here. My dad dropped me off on the side of the road and went up a little farther to a turnout while I doubled back on a big bridge to get the shots. The lighting wasn’t great, but it is better than nothing. Here is one of the falls.
Check back tomorrow to see pictures of the beautiful sunset we watched that night!
