kauai, hawaii // part ii

we basically went to a different beach everyday...

not pictured: a whole ton of snorkeling! sea turtles! monk seals! 

found a waterfall with a rainbow (only in kauai...)

drove around a lot

went on an epic, 22 mile long kalalau hike along the na pali coast:

(not pictured: blazing sun, loose dirt paths, terrifyingly high cliffs, endless switchbacks, wild goats, etc)

the reward!!! kalalau valley & beach. 

spent our last few days on the beach,

swung by waimea canyon,

&& had a final drink at the stevenson library

the end.


kauai, hawaii //part i

we just came back from two weeks in kauai. 
the pictures don't really do it any justice, especially since they're just iphone pics.
but it was too incredible a place not to share!

queens bath, princeville.
a natural pool, surrounded by igneous rock.
one of my favorite spots!

this guy greeted us on day 1, by rolling around on the pavement while we unloaded. ♡

uniform for most of our stay :)

view from the sleeping giant (nounou) trail.

& another. 

from glass beach, where locals used to dump their trash. pretty surreal.

kilau ridge trail. 

+++ gotta show some food

from a tiny health food store -- a vegan concoction. 
this was reaaallllyyyyyy good ( as was all the food on the island)

obviously i had to drink from a coconut on the beach!


stay tuned for part 2.
