Beautiful Kauai

 Every year in Kauai we make the trip to the Allerton Gardens. They are really beautiful, a hidden gem near our condo. Many TV shows and movies have been filmed here. 
 This year we had a great guide. Our favorite. He told Jeff he liked his Einstein t-shirt. He was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. 
 There is a lily pad pond. Tons of cute not so little frogs and toads. 
 Our guide told us we would see this area of golden bamboo in the new Johnny Depp pirates movie. Can't wait. 
 Our annual photo taken in the trees that hid the dinosaur eggs in Jurassic Park. 
 I also love this little hide away. There is a room with a bench under this flowering canopy. I love it under there. 
 This year we went to a luau. There was a lot of beautiful things here. These trees are not painted. Notice Jeff wearing his collection of beads. 
 The little town of Hannapepe has this swinging bridge. It really gets swaying. 

 The sign above me says no diving. Jeff did not like me even pretending to jump off of it. 
 In Hawaii they eat of all things Spam. I do not get it. Mystery meat would be a better name for it. This is taken at McDonald's. Spam at McDonald's????? Creepy. 
We drove up to Waimea to see the view. This is all we saw. Lots of vog. They call it vog instead of fog. Whatever it was it was thick and not going away. This is the third year we have not been able to see the view. Guess we will have to go back and try again.

Seeing Kauai with Mary and Jeff as tour guides is amazing, they know all of the coolest spots. The Allerton gardens offered beautiful sites and very interesting history. A must see in Kauai.

I want to go back so bad... even though my beach is gone :( Have loved seeing all of your pictures!

What wonderful memories these pictures bring! We were actually planning on going next year until Beth said that the beach in front of the little house we like to rent is gone! We are heartbroken! I can't imagine that those miles of deserted beach no longer exist.
