Day 6 in Paradise

Today was a day of sight seeing and photography. When I got my new camera, I was so excited to come to Kauai and take pictures of the beautiful birds on the island. I have not had much luck in getting the pictures that I wanted, however, I did find this bird in a tree. Yes. It is a chicken. lol. Roosters rool the roost on this island. I am not kidding. Everywhere you go, they are there.



Here is a mother hen with her chicks.

This bird is a familiar site on all the Hawaiian Islands.


This pretty little grey and red bird was hard to catch for a photo, but I finally caught up with him.

There are so many gorgeous flowers on this island and I had fun photographing them.










This is my favorite Hawaiian Flower. The Plumeria. Not only is it beautiful but it is fragrant.

On our drive we saw the Opaeka Falls.




And, the Wailua Falls, also known as, Fantasy Island. Back in the 70's there was a tv show called Fantasy Island. Some of you might remember the little guy, named Tatoo saying "Da plane, Da plane".





This is a picture of the Wailua River.



Here is a picture of Lexi with one of the "baby coconuts" that she collected.


I had fun taking this picture. I, actually, laid down on the ground to take it.
There is a small light house at the end of the little cove that our beach sits in.


Tonight while waiting for dinner, a nice man took these family pictures for us.

Lori! You are doing such a great job with your camera! LOVE the photo you took on your back! ROFL It drives my kids crazy when I do that. I have a thing for taking photos through tree branches. I do it all of the time, and of course I have to get on my back in order to get the perfect shot! They think I am crazy. Now they'll think their Aunt Lori is crazy, too. Of course, we already knew that we are two peas in a pod! LOL

Love the family photo! And the rooster. How funny is that? Can't wait to see your chicken layout!

Enjoy your last day or two!
